Week 331 Menu

Hi guys!  Last week I followed my menu almost exactly, except we had leftovers on Saturday.  It was so nice to have a plan!

I especially loved that the slowcooker kalua pork that I made on Thursday was enough for four different dinners.  
Sometimes I freeze it, but this time I used it for pulled pork sandwiches topped with coleslaw and we're having it in tacos tonight.  My family loves it as is, just kalua pork.  It's seriously the easiest dinner ever and perfect for picky eaters.  It's plain as it can be, but still really flavorful.  

I posted a few other things on instagram from this weekend, like some yummy Macaroni Grill style rosemary bread that we made yesterday for dinner.  And also about a fun thing I got to do with the kiddos at church yesterday.  

This week is full of the usual things:  school, homework, scouts, sports, etc.  I'm excited to have a plan for dinner time.  I need to do better at making dinner before the kids get home from school.  It makes for happier kids and a happier mom.  

Menu time...

Monday:  pork tacos or salad (using leftover kalua pork from the other day)


Wednesday:  breakfast burritos (no eggs and just a tiny bit of bacon for me.  I like to shred a zucchini and fry it with my hashbrowns.  Super yummy!)

Thursday:  chicken and wild rice soup (I'll probably double the recipe and freeze the extra)

Friday:  chicken tortilla salad with homemade ranch dressing

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  grilled marinated steaks, fried new potatoes, veggies (I'll skip the steak to be low-chol and load up on veggies)

What are you planning this week?  Feel free to share if you've got a menu plan. Have a great 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

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
