Week 221 Menu

It's Tuesday...and I am just posted my menu.  Oops!  I got a little buried in laundry yesterday and then got distracted taking care of these two munchkins, so I never made it to the computer to plan it.
Before I knew it my big kids were home from school, then there was dinner, homework, showers, family home evening, etc., then bed.  Aaah! 
Luckily, I have the sweetest baby in the world that sleeps through the night (I hope he does it forever!).  He's three months old today!  That went by so fast!  I think my life is easier and better with this little baby guy in our family.  I'm so blessed!  His little smiles and coos melt my heart. 
Today I am going to hit the grocery store, so I had to finish up my menu planning.
Here it is...

Monday:  we had meatloaf, baked potato wedges w/homemade ranch dressing, green beans

Tuesday: creamy chicken and wild rice soup, yummy french bread

Wednesday: tinfoil dinners

Thursday: chicken fajitas

Friday: homemade pizza

Saturday: try honey lime tilapia, simple orzo pilaf

Sunday: easy night

One more thing, check out this yummy recipe for Spicy Chicken Pizza Roll by my sister's bestie, Juliann Pelton.  She's in the semi-finls in the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest.  Exciting!  Pop on over and vote for her.  Her recipe is near the bottom of the page.  I'm excited to try her recipe...looks like something my family would love!

Have a good week!  And, as always, feel free to post your menus if you've planned them.  (Thanks Julia & Beth!)

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
