A note from last week’s menu. We ended up with spaghetti sauce and meatballs left over, but no noodles. I can never get that ratio right. My husband made Italian meatball sandwiches with it. I hear it was amazing. I’m not good with too much dairy, so they ate it while I was out.
And another note from last week’s menu! Friday night I made a slaw to go on top of the hotdogs, totally improvised. Usually I read other people’s recipes to get ideas, then I just tweak them. Not this time. I made it up completely and it was so yummy! For the slaw sauce I used mayo, yellow prepared mustard, white vinegar, sugar, black pepper, and crumbled bacon. then I stirred it into angel hair slaw and slivers of red onion. It was amazing.
The flowers for May!

-Bratwurst with Sauerkraut
-White Beans with Tomatoes and Garlic
-The husband is craving brats and sauerkraut. I buy real German sauerkraut, usually at a discount store. I never liked sauerkraut, until I had it German-style.
-I was looking for a baked bean recipe, but came across this instead.
Get the recipe for the white beans here. I have a cheese rind in the freezer that I will add to it for extra flavor. I’m also not going to buy the expensive sage at the store. I will use dried sage.
Growing up, my mom made this quite often. She always served it with slices of cheese, sweet pickles and saltine crackers. I loved breaking up the cheese into little pieces and dropping them in to the soup so they could melt.
No recipe for this one. Boil some peeled potatoes, diced onion and diced celery, salt and pepper. Once it is all soft, mash it to desired consistency, then add some evaporated milk to give it some creaminess. Add more vegetables if you like it thicker. Play with it. This is a hard recipe to mess up.
Crock Pot Pork Green Chili
I was in the freezer aisle and spied these. I’ve never tried them before.
I have typed up the recipe here.
The Easy Bowl from week 7. It had mixed reviews in our house. The husband loved it, I just felt like it was a salad on rice. Oh, and I didn’t have big shallow bowls so it was served on a plate!
