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

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
