Sara's Recipe Box :: Grammy's Simple Salad

Posted by Sara in recipescooking

From the recipe box of my grammy Dorothy Hammond. It brings back wonderful memories as I loved this as a kid, and I still think it's one of the best salads around. Nothing fancy about it, and not much to it. Sweet and sour - simply delicious!

Grammy's Simple Salad

Yield: 4 servings

3 cups iceburg lettuce, chopped thin
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dried parsley
salt and pepper, to taste
4 tbsp. salad oil
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Toss all ingredients together. Keep chilled until serving, but to do not make too far in advance.

Sara's Recipe Box :: Lima Bean Barbecue

Posted by Sara in recipescooking

From the recipe box of my grandma Micki Sommer. There are several similar recipes out there, but nothing quite as good as this one. :) Always made with love, as all of her recipes were.

Lima Bean Barbecue

Yield: 8 servings

2 (16 oz.) packages dried lima beans
1 tbsp. salt
2 (10 oz.) packages pork sausage links, (24 links)
1 onion, chopped
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup liquid from cooked beans
2 tbsp. horseradish
3 tsp. worcestershire sauce

Cover beans with water. Boil for 2 minutes and then turn off the heat and let soak for at least 1 hour. Add the salt and boil gently for 45 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

In a small bowl, mix the onion, ketchup, cooking liquid, horseradish and worcestershire sauce. Pour over the beans and toss to coat.

Fry sausage until brown.

Place half of the beans in a 9 x 3 x 2" casserole dish. Cover with half of the sausage. Add the remaining beans and top with the rest of the sausage.

Bake uncovered at 400º F for 20 minutes.

Menu Plan Monday :: June 8th - 14th 2009

Posted by Sara in recipesmenu planningcooking

So, I found this fun new meme that I thought I'd try out. It's run by a mom over at The concept is that if you plan your menu for the week ahead of time, you will save money and enjoy healthier meals. She lists 13 reasons why she does a weekly menu plan, and it makes a lot of sense. It's something that I actually do already, although not necessarily on Mondays. But I should find it fairly easy to adapt. My local grocery store emails me the specials on Sunday night, so I'll be ready to roll Monday morning.

First a disclaimer: Although we do have a family of five, they are all currently 5 years and younger. Which means, we usually end up with a bunch of leftovers. Which also means I do not have to cook every night. Yay! Don't get me wrong, I love to cook. But with three little ones, it's easier to have some leftover nights. So, I generally plan on having leftovers unless I know that a meal will not be large enough to carry over. Also, I don't actually plan breakfast and lunch menus, although I probably should. Two of my kids are in school and my husband is at work. So, it's just me & the baby at lunch-time. I don't really need a plan for that right now. He's into baby and finger food - and I like pretty much the same thing every day. :)

I reference everything on the menu with a link to the recipe, unless it's something that doesn't require one. If the link directs you to another website, it means that I have not tried the recipe, and therefore have no idea whether it is good or not. :) If the link leads to a posted recipe here on my blog, it means that it is a tried & true family recipe that we love. I will also try to revisit some of the recipes I link to and leave comments about how they turned out for us!

So, here's what we have on the menu this week...

Dinner Menu :: June 8th - 14th 2009

Cold Sesame Noodles with Shredded Chicken (but instead of the cucumber garnish, I'll be making cucumbers as a side dish).
Creamed Cucumbers

Leftovers from Monday, throwing in some peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for the kids.
