Week 318 Menu and something new



Hi everyone!  Friday is not too late to post a weekly menu, right?  It was a great memory exercise to see if I remember what we actually ate this week.  It's been a busy one!

Monday: we had taco soup

Tuesday: we had turkey meatball sandwiches (from stuff I had stashed in the freezer, so yummy!  My daughter's favorite!)

Wednesday: fried potatoes, peppers and chicken sausage

Thursday:  ham, cheesy potatoes, one hour rolls

Friday:  pizza, giant green salad, creme filled cupcakes

Saturday: easy night

Sunday: grill steak, whole wheat cous cous, salad

Yesterday we had lots of yummy food that my daughter requested for her birthday.  Crepes for breakfast!  I made cinnamon rolls and took them to the school to share with her class.  The kids commented that they thought they were storebought because they were so good.  :)  (I think adults would think the opposite...homemade = good, storebought = not so much.)  I'll take the compliment!

We decided to forgo birthday cake on the actual birthday and instead of creme filled chocolate cupcakes tonight with her friends!  I'm making them this morning.  Smelling yummy!

Oh, speaking of cinnamon rolls (a whole paragraph ago) that reminds me that I set up a NEW instagram account just for my blog @whatisonyourmenu.  
I'd been thinking about setting up a seperate account for a while now, but finally decided to do it just in case my instagram friends didn't really want to see pictures of cinnamon rolls and notifications when I post something new on the blog.  

Feel free to follow me!  I love Instagram.  I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again.  So much less annoying than Facebook.  Less notifications.  Less seeing what other people are "liking" and posting on other peoples pages.  Less ads.  Just simple, happy pictures.  

All righty...got to get going.  Have a great weekend!  And I'd love to hear what you actually ate this week, even if you're vacationing during spring break!

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
