Week 275 Menu

Hi friends!  Can you believe it's already Thursday and I'm just getting around to posting my menu, I better keep it short and sweet.  Hopefully I'll have time to post a Bits and Pieces post tomorrow about what I've been up to and what I've been making. 

I get kind of antsy when I haven't posted my menu and it gets later in the week.  I guess it's just a habit to post early in the week since I've been doing it since 2008.'s been a bit of a different week.  My barely turned eight year old son broke his arm last weekend, so we've been adjusting to having him do things one handed.  It's been a new experience for me.  Also, we're starting a major remodeling project this week, so my father-in-law has been super kind and is staying with us this week to help.  So with company, a house project, a broken arm, and the regular kid activity run-around I feel like I'm scrambling to keep up.  It's been fun though...kind of a break from our usual schedule.

All's menu time:

Monday:  we had broiled parmesan tilapia with simple orzo and quinoa (options for those quinoa lovers/haters at my house)

Tuesday:  we had creamy chicken and wild rice soup, one hour rolls

Wednesday:  we had chicken sandwiches (rotisserie chicken and French bread from Sam's club)

Thursday:  we had tacos with homemade taco seasoning, quick salsa, guacamole and all the other fixings

Friday:  BBQ chicken pizza

Saturday:  broccoli cheese soup or maybe grilled burgers instead

Sunday:  Happy Mother's Day!  perfect pot roast, potatoes, gravy, etc. 

That's what we're eating at my house this week.  What about you?  What's on your menu this week?  (Even if you haven't menu planned for the weekend, feel free to share what you made Monday - Thursday, even if it's cereal.  I have nothing against cereal for dinner. :)

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
