Week 313 Menu: and a peek in my kitchen

Hi guys!  Well, it's Thursday already, so that means it's time to post my menu right?  Ha!  I tried to plan it on Monday, but it didn't work out.  We had a couple different people over for dinner and I had a hard time planning what I wanted to make.

Plus, pretty much every day has been like this for me...gone all morning and then I spend forever cleaning up the kitchen and putting away groceries, breakfast, lunch etc.  I love clean counters and usually start off the day and end the day with them clean.  Ha!  

Just keeping it real.  This is my kitchen at 1 pm the other day.  Yep, breakfast stuff still out, cooler with groceries in it waiting to be put away, etc.  

Menu time.

Monday:  we had spaghetti (I had spaghetti squash and the family had noodles.  I love spaghetti squash now!)

Tuesday:  fed the missionaries - we had drip beef sandwiches from our best bites, quick salsa and chips, lots of fruit and veggies, and my daughter made some warm chocolate chip cookies (we sent the extra home with the missionaries)

Wednesday:  had our vegetarian friend over for dinner - had broccoli cheese soup, french bread, fruit and veggies, and angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries for dessert

Thursday:  breakfast burritos

Friday:  my kids get out early, so I'll let them pick.  Maybe that will cut down on the complaining.

Saturday:  pancakes

Sunday:  I'll let the family pick.  Complaining, again.

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
