Week 348 Menu

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm so happy that we've had sunny skies the last few days.  Such a nice break from a few months of gray and rain, fog, mist, etc.  I'm super happy that it's getting light earlier and staying light longer.  

Last week we survived/enjoyed another pinewood derby!  With these three boys we have seven more consecutive years of pinewood derbies to go!  

This week is another full week, like normal, with practices, piano lessons, church activities, etc. after school.  I've been doing better the last few weeks at actually making what I plan and having dinner ready earlier.  If I have dinner ready earlier, then hopefully we can all go to bed earlier, and then I can wake up earlier and go running, which makes me happy.  :)

Menu planning time.  I'm going to try a few new recipes this week to mix things up a bit.   

Monday:  spaghetti

Tuesday:  white chili

Wednesday:  steak and veggie stirfry

Thursday:  my daughter requested meatball sandwiches (so yummy!)

Friday:  I'm going to try this recipe for black bean lasagna

Saturday: easy night

Sunday:  try creamy Italian sausage and potato soup, best french bread ever

What are you making this week?  I love it when you share.  Thank you when you do!

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
