Week 346 Menu

Did you all have a great weekend?  Ours was great!  It was our last Saturday before basketball games start, so we enjoyed sleeping in, going running, cleaning the house, etc.  This year we have church at 11:00, so I love not having to get up super early to be ready on time.  

Yesterday I made these healthier no-bake cookies for a Sunday treat (mostly just because I wanted to try them).  My big kids definitely like the original no-bake cookies better, with sugar & butter in them, but my little guy and I liked these.  
This week I'm determined to be more organized, waste less time, and exercise more. My Fitbit friends and I are trying to get 100,000 steps between Monday and Friday. It's not as easy to do during the winter as it is during the summer. Gotta take some laps around my basement to get some extra steps.

One more thing...the sun is out today!  I love it.  It makes such a big difference.  The winter is super gray here in Washington.  I think my little guy and I will bundle up and go for a run.  

All right, menu time!  

Monday:  Make-Your-Own-Salad w/grilled spicy honey chicken, lettuce, cucumbers, black beans, white corn, avocado, homemade salsa, homemade ranch dressing, topped with homemade baked tortilla strips and maybe some cornbread muffins to motivate my salad-hating kids.  

Tuesday:  Breakfast Burritos

Wednesday:  Quick French Dip Pitas, baked sweet potato fries

Saturday:  Easy Night 

What are you making this week?  If you've menu planned, feel free to share!  Have a great Monday!

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
