Week 308 Menu

Hi there! Since every post is better with a picture, here's a silly cell phone pic for you of the drawer of my fridge. I can't seem to keep it stocked with Tillamook yogurt for long. My family devours it. It's yummy!


It's Monday, I'm trying hard to get organized.  Most of our new house is unpacked, at least the parts of the house that we use daily. I need to hang up my menu board, bulletin board and all our clocks.  I'm making responsibility charts for my kids, dish washing charts, doing laundry and making my menu.  I'm ready for routine and schedule and my kids are too.  

I'm also ready to try to only go to the grocery store once this week instead of going to a different grocery store every day.  It's been tricky figuring out where I want to shop after having shopped at the same place in New Mexico for the last eight years.  I posted on facebook the other day that I was happy to discover Winco, after trying more than five other grocery stores nearby since we moved here.  

I'll be glad when we all finally are in a routine and things feel familiar.  :)

Menu planning time:

Monday:  tacos

Tuesday:  chicken noodle soup with my favorite whole wheat bread

Wednesday:  porcupine meatballs with rice 

Thursday: Lorene's chicken

Friday: pulled pork sandwiches topped with coleslaw

Saturday:  easy night

What are you making this week?  (Thanks Wendi and Beth for sharing last 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

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
