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

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
