Week 250 Menu and a GIVEAWAY!

NOTE (10/30/13):  If you've tried to leave a comment to enter the giveaway, but it won't work, just leave me a comment on facebook and I'll enter you.  You have until 9 pm tonight to enter.  Thanks!
Happy Monday everyone!  This week is my #250th menu.  I started my blog back in 2008 and haven't missed many weeks since then unless I've been on vacation or had a baby.  

To celebrate the big #250, I thought I'd have a giveaway.  It's small, but hey, maybe you'll win.  :)  Your odds are pretty good.  The giveaway is for a years subscription to the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. 
This is one of my favorite magazines.  I have a few other magazines that I subscribe to, like Family Fun, and some parenting magazines, but sometimes they go straight into the magazine rack unread.  I always read Better Homes and Gardens then.  I love the decorating ideas and recipes. The gardening section makes me want to go crazy with plants in my yard.  I haven't yet though.

Here are the giveaway details.  To enter, just let me know in the comment section what you're making for dinner tonight (or if you don't have it planned yet, just tell me what you ate for dinner last night, even if it was a grilled cheese).  The giveaway ends soon...this Wednesday, October 30th, so enter quickly. 

For a bonus entry like my blog on facebook and let me know in a comment.  Or if you already follow me on facebook, just tell me that in a comment. 

All right.  Menu time!

Monday: sausage, pepper, potato bake

Tuesday: chicken tetrazinni

Wednesday: smothered sweet pork burritos

Thursday:  clam chowder in bread bowls, hot dog mummies for the kids

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday: easy night

Sunday: ham, potato casserole, green beans, yummy crescent rolls

What are you making this week?  Don't forget to enter the giveaway.  (Even if you already have a BHG subscription feel free to comment and tell me what you're making for dinner tonight.  I love new ideas!)


Just for fun, check out my menus from one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, four years ago, five years ago.

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

One Hour Breadsticks

I got this fast and easy recipe for breadsticks from my sister over 10 years ago. I've been making it ever since. Give them a try. They're super easy and yummy! Printable recipe One Hour Breadsticks recipe from my sister, Lissa Ingredients 3 c. flour 2 T. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 1 1/2 c. warm water 1 T. instant yeast Directions Mix all ingredients for three minutes in mixer (I use my kitchenaid), adding more flour if needed so the dough is workable and not too sticky.  Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt/powder.  Put on greased pan and cut into breadsticks. (I use a pizza cutter to cut them).  Let rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 350 or until lightly browned. My notes: I usually half this recipe and it fills up almost a whole cookie sheet or a pizza stone. If you want to
