Week 269 Menu

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!

Did you all have a great St. Patrick's Day?  I have to admit that there are some really cute ways to celebrate St. Patrick's day, but I've never done any of them.  I don't color our food green or even serve hardly any green food.  The most green we ate yesterday was the green peppers inside our meatball sandwiches.

Speaking of meatball sandwiches, have I told you lately how much I love them?  My sister-in-law, Melinda, gave me the recipe for the best turkey meatballs ever a long time ago.  They are one of my favorite recipes ever.  And they're pretty healthy too, full of veggies and lean ground turkey.  My baby gobbled them up plain yesterday.  I bought some ciabatta rolls from Sam's Club yesterday and our sandwiches were taken to another level of deliciousness.  Usually I just buy rolls at my local Smith's, since Sam's is an hour away.

Yesterday on my shopping trip I went to Sprout's and stocked up on green and red peppers.  I cut them up and freeze them.  I also bought some butternut squash to roast and then puree.  I freeze the puree in ice cubes and then drop a few cubes into ramen noodles, soup and sauces.

I also bought some ground turkey and boneless skinless chicken breasts to make fancy up (form into meatballs or bag with some marinade) to stick in my freezer.  Pretty much like I talked about in my freezer meal post a while ago. season started yesterday, so we're back at it with only a two week break since basketball season ended.  That means that I have to have dinner ready before the kids come home from school otherwise we're eating cereal every night.

And, my camera card is missing.  I'm thinking a sweet little 15 month old took it out of the card reader that was in the computer and dropped it somewhere sneaky, because I can't find it anywhere.  I keep thinking of things (mostly food) to take pictures with, but I can't until I get another card.

Anyway...time to get busy.  My to do list is waiting for me.  Menu planning time...

Monday:  we had my favorite meatball sandwiches and fresh pineapple

Tuesday:  chicken tetrazinni 

Wednesday:  leftovers

Thursday:  porcupine meatballs

Friday: tinfoil dinners

Saturday:  to be determined

Sunday:  crockpot chicken tacos

That was easy.  What about you?  What are you making this 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

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden

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
