Week 354 Menu: And last day for the giveaway!

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  Before I tell you about my menu for the week, let me give you a heads up that I'll pick a winner for my GIVEAWAY tomorrow morning, so don't forget to enter!  All you have to do is leave a comment on the giveaway post telling me if you'd love to have the Our Best Bites cookbook or 6 cute, porcelain ramekins.  Your odds are VERY good and you might just win.  :)

Last week I shared how I finished reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.  Now I can't stop going through stuff.  I am thoroughly enjoying throwing things away and taking things to the recycling center and goodwill.  It's addicting and such a freeing feeling.  Can't wait to do more.  

This week is the calm before the storm (aka baseball season for 2 kids).  Basketball season is now officially over and this week we only have soccer for one kid.  

Menu planning time.   

Monday:  roasted potatoes with fried sausage, peppers and onions.  I'll probably roast one of the butternut squash that I grew in my garden last year.  Yum!  

Tuesday:  beef stroganoff, whole wheat egg noodles, steamed veggies

Thursday:  baked potato soup, cornbread muffins, big green salad

Friday:  Swedish meatballs, IKEA gravy (thanks to my sister-in-law, Melinda for sending me a supply of gravy packets...I was out!), steamed potatoes, one hour rolls

Saturday: grill hot dogs (six year old's request), roasted sweet potatoes 

Sunday: grilled teriyaki salmon, quinoa, veggies

What are you making this week?   Feel free to share.  I love it 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
