8 brat buns, split

Place the brats in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; add the beer, onion and fennel.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8-10 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.  Drain and discard beer mixture.

Grill brats, covered, over indirect medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side (or until a thermometer reads 160), turning occasionally.  Serve on buns.

Pasta with Chicken and Roasted Peppers

Quick and easy weeknight meal!

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


In a sauté pan or skillet large enough to hold all of the pasta after it has been cooked, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the chicken and sauté, stirring, until it is cooked through. Lower the heat to medium and add the roasted red peppers, oregano, rosemary, and chicken broth.

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauté pan with the chicken. Stir to combine. Add freshly ground pepper. Serve in large pasta bowls, with parmesan cheese on the side.

A nice compromise when one family member wants pizza and another wants burgers for dinner!

Hawaiian Fish Kabobs

 Add the first seven ingredients to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake them well.  Place the catfish in a shallow bowl and pour the marinade over the fish, tossing the fish to coat it thoroughly with the marinade.  Cover the bowl and chill the fish for 30 minutes or longer.  Reserving the marinade, remove the fish from the bowl.  String the pineapple, vegetables, and fish on the skewers, starting and ending with pieces of bell pepper.  Brush the skewers on all sides with the remaining marinade.  Place the skewers on a hot grill, and cook the kebabs for 4 minutes on each side or until the fish is just cooked through.

Hot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad doesn't have to just make can also make a delicious casserole!

Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.

In a small bowl, stir together the crushed potato chips and slivered almonds. Sprinkle the mixture over the chicken salad. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour (or even overnight).  Preheat the oven to 400°. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until heated through. Cover the top loosely with aluminum foil, if necessary, to prevent overbrowning.
