Week 337 Menu

Hi everyone!  I'm happy that it's Monday and a new month and that we got an extra hour of sleep today.  I feel like day light savings time is a great time to reset my morning routine.  Hopefully I make the habit again of getting up at 5 or so and exercising before my kids start getting up at 6.  My day is SO much better when I just get up early.  

Anyway...how was your weekend?  How was Halloween?  I simplified ours a bit.  We ended up getting Krispy Kreme doughnuts instead of making our traditional annual buttermilk doughnuts (that are super yummy and easy and fun to make).  We carved pumpkins at 3:30 on Halloween.  And I finished my son's jail bird costume an hour before our church carnival on Friday night.  The kids had a great time and we have way too much candy, so the weekend was a success!

My little guy, who will be 3 in December, ran with the underwear that I bought him last week and he pretty much potty-trained himself.  It was a big week for him (and me) since we moved him into a big boy bed.  Now naptime and timeout are a LOT harder.  Tips for timeout locations besides a crib for a two year old would be appreciated.  :)  

All righty...menu time for this week:

Monday:  chicken fajitas

Tuesday:  chicken noodle soup, fresh light and fluffy whole wheat bread, taking pumpkin torte to an activity at the church

Wednesday:  quick french dip pitas, sweet potato fries

Thursday:  spaghetti

Friday: grilled salmon, rice/quinoa, veggies

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday: chicken pot pie (my daughter's favorite)

What are you making this week?  I always love it when you share your menus.  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

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

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
