Week 329 Menu

Hi there!  Well, we're starting the second week of school at our house.  I guess this is when the fun starts, because 6th grade homework will start, along with soccer practice, instrument practicing, etc.  

Last week was nice and not too stressful since we didn't have our normal amount of after school activities.  I kept busy attempting to clean my house and do something with all the veggies I'd picked from my garden.  One day I made a huge pot of green chile enchilada sauce.  My little buddy helped me foodsaver it into pouches and pop them in the freezer.  The sauce is a little spicy, but it's a great way to use up some of my many anaheim chiles in my garden.

Menu planning is a must this week, so we maybe we might have dinner every night.  Here goes....(I plan out my menus while I type them here on my blog.)

Tuesday: Crockpot taco soup (without meat, cheese and sour cream for me) topped with our favorite Late July multigrain tortilla chips from Costco.  

Wednesday:  PW's lettuce wraps

Thursday: bistro chicken with garlic potatoes (potatoes freshly dug from our garden)

Friday:  homemade pizza


Sunday:  grilled teriyaki salmon, quinoa, garden veggies

All righty...that's what we're having this week.  What about you?  What's on your menu this week?  Feel free to share your menu ideas.  I love it when you do!

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

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
