Menu for 2/7 – 2/13

Didn’t we just plan our week of menu’s a couple of days ago?  It sure feels like it!

One of the ways I come up with new meal ideas is by subscribing to several weekly newsletter email. I get a lot of inspiration from Kraft, Betty Crocker and Pillsbury. These are just a few of the great resources out there. One of the really nice things about these sites are the fact that you can also print out coupons for your dinner items right there on their sites. And that is very helpful for me. So, check them out when you are putting together your menu for the week!

Aussie Fries From The Outback

Fruit Cocktail

Outback Steakhouse Aussie Fries

1 – 2 lb. bag of Frozen French Fries
1 C. shredded Colby Jack cheese (An excellent suggestion is to use the cheese that is
labeled as “Taco Cheese”, cheese for Tacos.)
6 pieces of Bacon, cooked

Divide the fries into half, and use the other half later. Heat oil to 350 degrees. If you do not have a thermostat, make sure the oil is hot enough, so that when you set a French fry in there it will cook immediately. If the French fry sinks to the bottom, and barely bubbles, it is not hot enough. Fry the potatoes in small batches, they are done when they are golden brown, and float to the top of the skillet. ( I like to use a Dutch oven). Be sure to drain the potatoes on paper towels. You can keep them warm in the oven while the other fries are done. When all French fries are done cooking, and drained place them onto a platter. Salt the French fries if you like, and sprinkle on cheese and cooked bacon. Pop these back into a warm oven until the cheese begins to melt.

Here is what Jane Coyle Suggested

1 16 oz bottle Ranch Dressing
2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. onion powder

Combine all ingredients and let refrigerate overnight for the best flavor.
