Week 78 Menu and Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone!  Look at these cute bunny tail (or bunny head) rolls that we with our Easter dinner.  They were fun to make and fun to eat.  I found the recipe here.  

This week has been a fun one:  Spring Break for the kiddos, my hubby took the week off from work and my in-laws were in town.  I've spent a lot of time in the kitchen whipping up lots of food.  It's nice having someone to entertain the kids while I cook.  But alas, that will end tomorrow and we're back to normal life again, except that soccer starts tomorrow, so our days will be even busier.  And honestly, I don't really feel like cooking anything anytime soon, so we'll see what this week brings.

Here's my menu for this week:

Monday:  chicken cordon bleu w/rice

Tuesday:  PW's BBQ meatballs w/mashed potatoes

Wednesday:  spaghetti

Thursday: breakfast for dinner

Friday: 6 year old birthday girl dinner, so TBD

Saturday: chicken quinoa stew (maybe I'll actually make it this week)

Sunday:  grilled chicken (finally got some propane for the grill and the snow is melted in the backyard, so let the grilling begin!)

Well, that's what's on my menu this week, so now it's your turn to share.  What's on your menu this week?  Check back later this week for some more yummy recipes.  Have a good week and happy Easter!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil
