Week 332 Menu and a weekend recap

Hi there!  Did you have a good weekend?  Ours was great.  My six year had his first flag football practice/game.  And my 9 year old had two soccer games which luckily were in town, so we didn't have to travel.  Yay!

My favorite part of the weekend was my date with my cute daughter to the General Women's broadcast on Saturday night. 
Our semi-annual mother/daughter selfie in front of one of my favorite places, the temple.
 The semi-annual broadcast is one of my favorite church meetings each year.  I always come away feeling uplifted, inspired, and motivated to be able to do better, be kinder, love more, etc.  I especially loved Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk with his story about Ava, Aunt Rose, and the stalker cat.  I've been thinking all weekend and how it teaches us to find joy in life no matter your circumstances.  

One more thing that I wanted to share before I get to my menu....I got to teach the kids at church yesterday about how our love for Jesus Christ grows when we study the scriptures.  It was an amazing time getting to talk about one of my favorite scripture stories with a room full of amazing kids. We read and talked about this and then watched one of my favorite short video clips of Christ visiting the people in America after his resurrection.  


All righty...menu time: (Notice that my menu has lots of meat in it.  I make it for my family and I either eat a tiny bit or skip the meat all together to be low-cholesterol.)

Monday:  breakfast burritos
  

Tuesday:  chicken rolls,simple orzo pilaf, veggies


Wednesday:  pepperoni bread, green salad and veggies to dip in homemade ranch (ready for the kids to eat before soccer practice, scouts, piano, etc.)


Thursday:  white chicken chili


Friday: tacos

Saturday:  teriyaki burgers


Sunday:  cinnamon rolls for breakfast before we get to stay home and watch General Conference, perfect pot roast, mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, one hour rolls, etc. for dinner


What are you making this week?  Did anything inspire you this weekend?  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
