Aloha Pigs!

Tonight we had aloha pigs with rice for supper. Very easy, quick, cheap, and good! Here is the reciepe:
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 package wieners, cut into eighths
1 green pepper cut in 1/2 inch squares
1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks, undrained
Just combine everything together in a 2 qt. baking dish--stir well. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for around 8 minutes. Stir half way through cooking. Serve with rice, if desired.
You could probably substitute 1 pound of cooked chicken for the wieners, if desired. The flavors in this were fantastic. I think next time I'll thicken it a bit with some cornstarch.
Enjoy!

I read your title and thought, "well that's a weird way to greet the posters on this thread."

Sounds like a fun recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Yesterday was supposed to be ham and bean soup but I brought that to the kids' school (I do noon hour supervision there and sometimes bring in lunch for the teachers) and we went to Swiss Chalet for dinner last night.

Tonight's dinner is meatballs and mashed potatoes and a garden salad. The kids will be having their leftovers from last night's dinner since they don't like meatballs in beef gravy.

Happy new year to everyone! I am a little behind on reading this thread well ok a lot behind but i am allowing myself computer time every day from now on. ever since my littlest was born last february i have slipped from a little me time. So back on track we go!

This week so far we had
monday- this really great chicken. I bought chicken tenders and marinated them with soy sauce, garlic, ginger,salt and pepper, olive oil. them i made a box of ziti and pour a can of crushed tomatoes i seasoned them with Italian seasoning and cooked the chicken added peppers and onions and put it all together and baked and it was yummy! my dh was worried about asian flavored chicken in a italian dish but was soooo good!oh i also took sliced bread and pour olive oil and broiled it and when it came out i rubbed a garlic clove on it.
tuesday- hot dogs and salad
wednesday- meat ball subs
Thursday- whole chicken with rice and a veggie
friday-?
saturday-?
Sunday- we have basketball and then going over to a friends house to watch the pats playoff with lots of yummy play off food!

feels good to be back! Did any of you make a new years resolution to eat at home more? I'd love to year them if you did.

Slightly OT, but have another thread on the topic of crockpots. Those of you who use them a lot, which brand/model do you have? I have the Crock Pot brand that's burning my food! Need to shop for a new one and would love suggestions. I've gotten some good suggestions from my other thread, but thought I'd post here too. Thanks!

Meals so far:
Sunday - breaded chicken cutlet w/garlic cream sauce and pasta
Monday - breakfast for dinner
Tuesday - beef stew in crock (burned!)
Wednesday - homemade crabcakes, homemade mac and cheese, spinach and arugula salad, brownies in crock (Burned!)
Thursday - london broil, baked potato, salad
Friday - ?
Saturday - out

For crock pots, I don't think mine is any specific kind. I just make sure to use PAM or those new crock pot liners. Also make sure to add a half cup of water at least to the crock pot so your stuff doesn't burn.

I made crock pot sloppy joes last night. Tonight I am making this lowland shrimp and rice.

I will post both of those recipes on my blog when I get a minute

Sounds yummy. Zuppa Tuscano is my DFIL's favorite soup. Would you be willing to share the recipe.
