Menu Plan Monday

I changed things around a little last week, and we ended up eating pork chops, burgers, tacos and grilled chicken last week Wednesday through Saturday. For the Fourth we ate ham cooked in the roaster outside so I wouldn't have to turn on the oven,

homemade potato salad,

fruit "sparklers"

and peas and carrots with Poke Cake for dessert.

Here's what we're eating this week:
Sunday--July 4 (see above)
Monday--Leftover ham and sides
Tuesday--Pork stir fry
Wednesday--Hamburger/potato dish
Thursday--Polish sausage/hot dogs

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

This is a great blueberry muffin recipe--the sour cream helps them stay moist longer than other recipes I've tried.

1 egg

1 cup sugar

1 cup sour cream

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 3/4 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries

Mix egg, sugar, sour cream, and oil until blended. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and add to egg mixture. Stir in blueberries.

Spoon mixture into greased muffin pan or muffin cups.

Bake in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
