Week 243 Menu

Happy Monday everyone!

How about those Cougars?  I snapped this picture when all of my kiddos decided to wear their BYU shirts.  They were excited because our little baby guy is finally big enough to wear his BYU shirt.

Speaking of Baby Guy...we are all still smitten with him.  I love his slobbery face, the way he pats me on the back when I pick him up and the way he snuggles into my shoulder.  And he thinks I'm funny.  He laughs all the time.  I can't believe he's already 8 1/2 months old!  Crazy!

After the craziness of last week, I decided to just play legos with my four year old on Friday morning.  Most of the time it's hard to get anything accomplished from start to finish with my little boys around, so I took the morning "off" and we played legos. 

Have you ever tried Fauxtisserie chicken or Steak Fries from Our Best Bites?  I made them both yesterday.  New favorites at my house!

All right.  Menu planning time...

Dan Dan Noodles

white chicken chili

Waikiki meatballs

maybe I'll make steak fries again with some fry sauce

one hour breadsticks

broccoli cheese soup in bread bowls

What are you making this week?  Have a great one!


P.S.  I'm going to go dessert-less, peanut butter-less and chip-less until the weekend.  I went without dessert a few weeks ago and it was great.  Wish me luck!

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
