First recipe post- Sept. 30th, 2008

If you haven't noticed from my most recent blogs, I'm trying to be more crafty and organized, and a betty crocker in the kitchen. For this reason, I joined a orgjunkie where moms post their menu plans every week (Menu Planning Monday). This gives people a chance to show their creativity with menu planning, and share recipes off one another's blog. I didn't really menu plan for this week, but i'll share the recipes from last night and tonight! 

Monday: Mini Meat Loaves

2 lbs ground beef

1 small onion-finely chopped (you might opt to use half of an onion and make sure its FINELY chopped!)

2 packets instant oatmeal

2 large eggs

¾ cup ketchup

½ cup lowfat milk

2 tbs worchestershire sauce

1 tsp salt

glaze: 1/3 cup ketchup

3 tbs. light brown sugar

 Heat over to 375.

In a large bowl, mix meat, onion, instant oatmeal, eggs, ketchup, milk, worchestershire sauce and salt. Divide meat mixture into 8 servings and shape into individual loaves. Pleace meat loaves in 9x13 baking pan.

 Glaze- in a small bowl, blend ketchup and brown sugar. Brush top and sides of meat loaves.

 Bake 35-40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes.

Tuesday: King Ranch Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

10-12 corn tortillas

1 can Ro-Tel (Original!)

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 cup chicken broth (or 1 can)

1 onion, chopped

8 oz. Sour Crème

¼ tsp. garlic salt

¼ tsp. black pepper

1 lb. cheese grated (you can use a variety for different flavors; I usually buy the 3 cheese Mexican, already shredded)

 Cook chicken (I do it in the crock pot; add 1 cup water). Shred or cube when its done.

Put the chicken broth in a small saucepan, simmer

Dip tortillas in chicken broth, tear into strips, layer the bottom of a casserole

Put chicken on top of tortillas

Combine all other ingredients except the cheese.  Stir thoroughly.

Pour mixture over chicken.

Top with cheese.

Cover with foil, cook at 350-degrees for 45 minutes. 

Remove from oven, take off foil and let it stand for about 10 minutes before serving…
