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

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
