Week 357 Menu

Happy Monday!  I kind of wish that our spring break started today instead of starting next week.  I'm in vacation mode.  We took a little trip to Seattle with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and family last week.  It was really fun and a great break!
 We did all of our Easter traditions after church yesterday.  We dyed eggs, had an indoor egg hunt (it was windy and cold outside) and I made up a little scavenger hunt for the kids (super small and inexpensive) Easter gifts.  Luckily, my kids know that I am the one that hides eggs and brings candy and patiently waited to do it all after church since I didn't have anything ready in the morning.  My 3 year old was really into dying eggs and finding them.  It was fun!

Now I'm feeling unmotivated to tackle the laundry and daily tasks.  Plus I went to a weights class at the gym this morning and my arms are feeling like noodles.  :)  A good feeling though...can't wait to toughen those muscles up.

This week is full on busy with tons of after school activities, piano lesson teaching and sports.  I'll have to prep dinner before the kids get home or we'll end up eating cereal.

Here we go.  Menu time.

Monday:  Asian BBQ chicken, ham fried rice

Tuesday:  orange glazed meatballs, quinoa, stirfry veggies

Thurdsay:  pepperoni bread, spinach salad

Friday:  white chili

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  grilled steak, roasted veggies, fruit salad

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

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

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
