Week 340 Menu: Thanksgiving Week

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!  

I think I'm ready for Thanksgiving.  I went grocery shopping today and I think (fingers crossed) I got everything I need.  Now I just need to get our house company-ready, because my sister and her family are coming!  I'm super excited to have them come visit and to whip up a feast with my sis.

My cute daughter found my grocery shopping list and added a little to it.  {Smile!}  Too bad I dropped it on the way to the garage and had to write a new list in the Winco parking lot.  Shopping wasn't too bad.  I really love Winco!  

Here's the menu plan for the week:

Easy night (seriously...I think grocery shopping for Thanksgiving is harder than actually making the feast.  The stores are crazy and then you get to lug the groceries in from the car and them put them away.  I ran out of time today, so we had leftovers and/or french toast for dinner.)


Taco soup in the crockpot (so it can simmer while we get the turkey brining, make pies, etc.)

Thanksgiving Feast:



What's on YOUR menu this week?  Do you go out for Thanksgiving dinner or make a giant feast by yourself or do you only have to bring one or two dishes to dinner?  Anyway you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day!

P.S.  Did you notice that my blog has a new web more to remember!  It's simply!

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
