What We're Eating Wednesday

We're in a local produce co-op and we had the option last week of getting 8lbs of strawberries for $10.  I couldn't pass that up of course and figured what a great way to get ahead on my freezer jam.  I think I had about 12 jars, maybe 15, that I ended up making last summer but they were gone so quickly!  I didn't realize that my sisters and dad liked it so much and my husband fell in love with these fruit bars that just aren't the same without homemade strawberry freezer jam.  So this year I've decided we have the freezer space so I might as well stock up.

Can't wait to see what you're all making this week.  Please share!


Cheesy Burger, Rice and Broccoli Skillet

This was a recipe I got from the Pillsbury website.  It was alright.  Not sure I'd make it again without tweaking something though.

Cheesy Burger, Rice and Broccoli Skillet

1 lb lean ground beef
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (10 3/4 oz)
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4-5 drops hot sauce
1 cup uncooked regular long grain white rice
2 cups water
4 cups frozen broccoli florets
4 oz (1 cup) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Brown beef in skillet until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently.  Drain.

Add soup, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce; mix well.  Stir in rice and water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, stirring once or twice.

Meanwhile cook broccoli to desired doneness as directed on package.  Drain and set aside.

Stir cooked broccoli into ground beef mixture; mix well.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Cover; cook an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Veri Veri Teriyaki

My Dad's BBQ is one of my favorite things to eat.  He makes the best chicken ever!  I finally asked him what he used for his teriyaki chicken and this is it.  I wasn't sure I'd find it at home since we live on opposite sides of the state but I did.  I've used this on shrimp and chicken and it's great on both.  I highly recommend this if you like a teriyaki flavor.  I think my dad even puts this on the chicken and freezes it until ready to use.  It's pretty powerful though and if you're short on time an hour or so of marinade time still provides a very  nice flavor.
