Well I had a great weekend!! It's so nice to just have that one extra day off. It's amazing what a difference it can make in your week. Last night we had some friends over for a barbeque. I made a great dessert which I will post tomorrow. We also had brats, burgers, corn, and the Broccoli Slaw I posted last week. After dinner we had a fire in the back which went on way too late so I'm a little tired today :)
Well here is the plan for the week:
PS... I was really bad about the picture thing. I will try to post some later as I make them :)
Monday: Hubby's Burgers with Special Sauce and baked sweet potato fries
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp orange juice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tsp ginger, grated
Mix all ingredients together make 4 patties. Grill each patty about 6 minutes on each side. Top with special sauce:
1/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup greek yogurt (or mayo)
2 tbsp green onions, chopped
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp orange juice
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp ginger, grated
Mix all ingredients together and spoon over burgers! This is really yummy and a great burger in the summer :)
Tuesday: Kung Pao Chicken
*I know that this seems like a lot of ingredients, which there are. However, a lot of the things are just basic pantry items. Once you make the quick sauce it's very fast from there. This is really tasty and a nice change from normal stir fry*
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 tbsp sherry
5 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vinegar
couple shakes of hot sauce (to taste)
1 tbsp cooking oil
2 tsp ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
2 cups rice, cooked
Mix in a medium bowl chicken, sherry, and 1 tsp cornstarch. Cover and set in fridge for 30 minutes.
In a small bowl stir together water, soy sauce, 4 tsps cornstarch, sugar, vinegar, and hot sauce. Set aside.
Pour cooking oil into a wok or skillet. Heat for a minute or two over medium high heat. Stir fry ginger and garlic in hot oil for about 15 seconds. Add chicken and stir fry until cooked through, about 4 minutes.
Stir in sauce until thickened and bubbly. Add in green onions and peanuts and cook for 1-2 minutes. Serve over rice.
