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

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
