Week 270 Menu

Oh my goodness!  I can't believe it's already Wednesday.  Early Monday morning I started writing this post and planned most of my menu.  I got interrupted and didn't finish the post.

Then on Tuesday, I sat down to finish planning my menu, but was completely stumped about what to make for dinner that night, so I didn't finish it.

So, now it's Wednesday and I'm going to finish posting, even with a crying baby and a halfway painted hallway.  I've been painting this week, or at least trying to, but I only really paint during naptime.

I cornered my family during breakfast this morning and made them tell me what they wanted to eat for dinner for the rest of the week. Hopefully this will cut down on the tears and fits at dinnertime.  My boys thought they were going to die yesterday since they had to eat tatortots in their tinfoil dinners.  Crazy kids!'s our menu for the week:

 Monday:  grilled chicken sausage, fried potatoes, green salad, fruit

Tuesday:  BBQ chicken tinfoil dinners

Wednesday: brats, oven fries, broccoli and fruit

Thursday:  spaghetti

Friday: orange chicken (my kids most favorite, most requested dinner of all time!)

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:   crockpot ranch pork chops, mashed potatoes, etc. 

 What are you eating this week?  Or what have you eaten so far?

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
