Week 317 Menu (Looking Back at Last Week)

Hi guys!  Last week was spring break for my kids. We spent most of the week at home doing soccer camp and hanging out together.  Pretty fun!

We started out the week with crepes for breakfast on Monday. Mmm...nothing like peanut butter and nutella for breakfast.

On Thursday we drove to Utah for a whirlwind trip. It was a fast trip, but fun to see lots of family.  We got to have lots of Easter fun too.  Hopefully my kids are sick of candy now.  :)
I had great intentions of posting my menu last Monday, but the week got away from me and here we are at the start of another week.  I thought I'd post what we actually ate last week.

Here goes:

Monday:  french dip sandwiches using leftover perfect pot roast

Tuesday:  breakfast burritos

Wednesday:  spaghetti, french bread, better than everything cake, salad

Thursday: chicken salad wraps while driving to Utah

Friday:  grilled hamburgers with lots of family, I made some teriyaki burgers that were yum!

Saturday: yummy carne asada or chicken tacos made by my sister-in-law

Sunday:  hmmm...did we have dinner?  We spent the day driving home to Washington and snacked a lot.  Remember my favorite road trip food post?  That's pretty much what we ate.

All righty... I'm off to tackle unpacking and cleaning out my car.  Ready for a full week of baseball, running, scouts, homework, birthday, etc.  This week's menu needs some serious planning so it's doable.  I'll be back tomorrow with it...hopefully!

How about you?  What did you eat last week?  Feel free to share even if you weren't home the whole week, like me.  ;)  You still ate, right?

Have a happy Monday!

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

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
