Week 356 Menu: Happy Easter!


Happy Easter this week!  This comic gave me a little chuckle.  i still need to buy candy for a our family Easter Egg hunt.  Easter is one of my favorite holidays!  We watched this video as a family on Monday night.  I'm thankful for a special season to remember that there is life after death.  #hallelujah  

I'm a little slow posting my menu this week.  I've been doing pretty great at spending less time on my phone and on the computer on social media later.  I had my husband put an appblock on my internet explorer on my phone and I love it.  It's so nice to not be able to check things on the internet.  It's helping me break my phone addiction.  :)

We have family in town and I'm loving having them here.  So, our week will be full of lots of good food and good company.

Here's the menu for the week:

Monday:  we had grilled Greek chicken, tzatsiki sauce on flatouts rosemary and olive oil bread

Tuesday:  I made this honey garlic chicken and instead of making roasted potatoes I tossed some angel hair pasta in the leftover sauce.  Super yummy!  My kids slurped it up.  

Wednesday:  chicken tacos

Thursday:  easy night

Friday:  easy night

Saturday:  Easter BBQ -- teriyaki burgers, brats and hot dogs, and maybe some chocolate creme filled cupcakes

Sunday:  ham, potatoes, bunny rolls, spinach salad

What are you making this week?  Do you have any fun Easter food that you eat every year?

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

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

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
