Week 98 Menu

I'm finally getting into the swing of things with school having started a week and a half ago.  From now on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday meals are going to be either made in the crockpot or made ahead-stuck in the fridge-and ready to bake.  These are days when we have things scheduled right up until dinnertime.  Our days go a lot smoother after school if I plan ahead.  Preparation is everything during the school year!

Also, I'm trying to get my family to eat more fish.  I'm not a huge seafood fan, but I think it's good for all of us to eat it since it's good for you and I want my kids to like it.  I made homemade fish sticks last week and am making fish again this week.  Feel free to share what your family favorite fish dishes are.  I need all the good fish recipes I can get.  

 Monday: homemade pizza

Tuesday: Chicken Tetrazinni w/1 hour breadsticks

Wednesday: teriyaki burgers

Thursday: taco soup or white chili

Friday: broiled tilapia parmesan

Saturday: try Amazing Chilil's Fajitas

Sunday: Barbeque Beef Strips w/rice

Extra meals just in case I don't feel like making what I've planned:  orange chicken w/rice (thanks Meagan -- my kids love this!) or breakfast for dinner.

All right, that's what I've planned.  How 'bout you?  What's on your menu this week? Have a good one!

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

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

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden
