Week 300 Menu!!!

Hi guys!  Well, today is the day that I've posted (and planned) 300 menus!  I started my blog on August 19, 2008 and have posted menus almost every week since then.  I'm going to have a giveaway for one of my favorite things because I'm thankful for all the people that read my blog.  Thanks for being great readers!

I'll do a separate giveaway post later today (hopefully).  It's a lots-of-tissues-and-blowing-my-nose day for me and a whiny-recovering-from-two-days-of-fever for my little guy.  I've just been making messes around my house and haven't been doing very well at cleaning anything up.  Better get busy.

This weekend was good.  We had our first ever yard sale.  It was a new experience, but we got rid of a lot of stuff that was cluttering up our crawl space and other places.

I taught a lesson in church to the ladies in Relief Society.  Then yesterday after church I got to take a nap.  It was so nice and much needed after staying up with my little guy the previous night watching Chuggington at 3 am.

I also tried a new recipe for dinner on Saturday and my family ate it!  That says a lot because my boys are going through a super picky stage.  Recipe coming soon.

Menu time...

Monday:  seriously, no idea...why is the day that I menu plan always the hardest? I need some inspiration.  :)

Tuesday: creamy chicken and wild rice soup

Wednesday: crockpot Korean fire meat, steamed rice, veggies

Thursday: tacos, maybe Navajo tacos if time allows

Friday:  pizza

Saturday: chicken tortellini soup and some kind of bread

Sunday:  smothered pork chops and mashed potatoes

All righty...what are you making this week?  (And especially, what are you making tonight?  I need immediate inspiration.  Ha!)

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
