Week 335 Menu

Hi there!  Today is one of those wear-your-pjs-to-Target kind of Mondays.  The day started before I was ready for it.  

I learned my lesson from last week, that NOT menu planning is a BAD idea.  I didn't plan my menu and so I didn't grocery shop very well.  I planned meals every day and some were good and some were pretty thrown together.  

This week is going to be busy, like normal, so menu planning is a MUST!

Monday:  Asian chicken salad (I'm grilling this chicken and adding it to the bag of Asian salad mix from costco.  I'll probably cook up some noodles for my non-salad loving kids.)

Tuesday:  honey lime pork enchiladas (using kalua pork from this weekend), quinoa and black bean honey lime enchiladas for me

Wednesday:  chicken noodle soup

Thursday:  broccoli beef

Friday:  pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  kids choice...I'm going to let them pick.  But I bet it's going to be orange chicken.  :)

I'm super excited for this weekend.  Sunday is the day that the kids do the program during sacrament meeting at church.  We've been learning songs and working on parts for months.  It's one of my favorite meetings all year.  The kids bring a special spirit and I come away from the meeting feeling very uplifted.  Can't wait!  

Plus this week we have lessons, band concerts, eye appointments, soccer games, etc.  But on Friday we finally get a BREAK and don't have school.  I'm sleeping in until 7!  Ha!  

Have a great week!  Feel free to share your menu (or just comment about how you don't make a menu).  I love hearing from you all!

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

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

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
