5 Meals For This Week

If you need dinner ideas for this week try one of the 5 Meals I have cooking: cottage ham, chicken lazone, spaghetti, country fried steak, and tilapia.

Cottage ham (sometimes called cottage butt) is a great meal for the crock pot.

Put your ham in the crock pot with about one quart of water. Next,add diced potatoes and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Last add green beans and chopped onion (optional).

Cook ham in water for about an hour.

Then add green beans, potatoes, onion and pepper.

Continue to cook for another two hours on medium heat.

If you are going to be around the house you can stagger adding the ingredients to the crock pot as well. Cook the cottage ham, onion, and pepper for about two hours.  Then add potatoes and cook for another hour.  Add beans and cook for at least another two hours.  I often just add everything at the same time.  In order for the ham to be tender to my liking it needs at least five hours in the crock pot.

No crock-pot ?  No problem.  You can always cook this meal on medium heat on the stove.

This for dinner is great served with a fresh tossed salad and warm butter bread.

At my house, country fried steak is usually served with mashed potatoes & gravy and green beans.

Chicken Lazone is a recipe my son gave me.

Spaghetti is pretty much self explanatory.

Usually I bake tilapia fillets in the oven and serve with wild rice and steamed broccoli.
