Menu Plan for the week of June 14, 2013:  Monday's Recipes

Grilled Burgers with Pepper and Onions
Brown Rice Pilaf

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Half of the Rice Pilaf will be used in a Salad for Wednesday. Use the other half of the yellow pepper and the rest of either the red or green pepper for the Pilaf and the grilled peppers.  There are no more onions used this week so use the half from Saturday here as well.

Grilled Burgers with Onion and Pepper  

Total time: 30 minutes
    A bit of finely chopped pepper and onion adds depth of flavor to these burgers.  Serve them smothered with more peppers and onions and some sharp, pungent mustard... With or without a bun!

Grilled Burgers with Onion and Pepper Ingredients:


Brown Rice Pilaf

Total time: 30 minutes   
      I use Uncle Ben's Brown Rice which looks like brown Basmati and cooks quickly, in about 15 minutes.  If you can't find a quick cooking brown rice and don't want to wait for the traditional to cook in 40 minutes (or so) you can substitute white Basmati which also cooks in about 15 minutes.  Look for the brown, though, better flavor and more nutrition.  This recipe plans on making the Brown Rice Pilaf Salad with the leftover rice pilaf.
