Recipes to try this week

I like trying and making up new recipes so I will try to post 2 recipes per week for you to try.

This first recipe I made up when trying to find something to do with leftover turkey last thanksgiving and it has become a family favorite. You can however use ground beef, ground turkey, ground chicken, or chunks of 1 of the 3 meats rather than ground. (If you are in a hurry it can be cooked in the microwave. Feeds 4-6)

You will need:
3 cups of uncooked rice
6 cups of water to cook the rice in
1 lb of meat of your choice
1 26oz can of spaghetti sauce
1 jar of ragu alfredo sauce
1 tsp lawrys seasoning salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Cook your rice in the 6 cups of water either on the stove or in the microwave. (takes 20 min in the microwave unless you use minute rice)
Brown your meat in a skillet with the seasoning salt & black pepper.
After draining the meat, rinse it and add it to the rice, then add the spaghetti sauce & alfredo sauce, then cook for 3-5 more minutes.
Complete the meal with either rolls, biscuits or cornbread and serve.

This recipe is something I came up with when we wanted something for dessert but didn't have much to work with. It has become a hit too(feeds 4-8).
You will need:
Bread (1-2 slices per person)
A toaster
Spreadable margarine or butter
Vanilla yogurt

Put some bread in the toaster.
Take a bowl and mix 1-2 tbsp. sugar with 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, add 1-3 tbsp of spreadable margarine or butter, mix it all together to make a cinnamon sugar butter.
When your toast pops up cover BOTH sides of each piece with the CSB and put them back into the toaster for another minute or 2.
Once all your toast is ready cut it into triangles.
Pour 1 cup of vanilla yogurt into a bowl and let everyone dig in dipping thier cinnamon toast into it.

Hope you will try these out for your family, Until next week, Have a blessed one!
