Week 259 & 260 Menu

Hi friends!  How was your New Year's?  I haven't made it onto the computer much this week.  I've checked my email on my tablet, but it's been too busy to sit down at the desktop computer.  I've been thinking of things to post about all week, but blogging took a back seat.

Hopefully this week I'll blog a little more.  First I have to find the bottom of the huge clean laundry pile and clean my house.  

Since every blog post is better with a picture, here's one of our Christmas dinner. 
See those crystal glasses?  We got them for our wedding 12 years ago and I'd never used them before this past Thanksgiving.  I don't know what I've been waiting for, but I figured that we might as well use them.  We only have four glasses and have six people in our family, but oh well. 

Last week we took a little trip to Colorado Springs to visit some cousins.  It was a nice little break, but it was long enough to realize how NOT fun it is to travel with a one year old.  My little baby guy cried a lot during the drive, woke up several times at night, and didn't really want to be away from me during the day.  It was nice to come home and have him take great naps and sleep all night.  It was fun to be with family though.  It's great that my sister-in-law, Annelisa, is a fabulous cook! 

I meant to post my menu last week, so I'll do it now...

Monday: sandwiches

Tuesday: New Year's Eve appetizers and treats

Wednesday: my sis-in-law made yummy broccoli cheese soup and I made french bread

Thursday:  pizza

Friday:  tacos

Saturday: Italian chicken sausage with pasta and veggies

Sunday:  Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, green salad w/homemade ranch dressing, fruit, broccoli, one hour rolls

Now menu time for this week.

Monday: BBQ Asian Chicken w/whole wheat couscous

Tuesday:  chicken tortilla soup

Wednesday: baked potato soup

Thursday: honey lime chicken enchiladas

Friday: chicken pot pie

Saturday: easy night

Sunday:  lasagna, breadsticks, salad

What are you making this week?  Or if you haven't menu planned yet, what did you eat last week?

Have a great week!

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
