Week 359 Menu

Wow, it's already Thursday!  This week and weekend have/are packed and busy, busy.  I have been meaning to sit down and menu plan all week, but haven't done it.  Dinnertime would have been much easier the last few days if I would have menu planned.  

Anyway...Here's our plan for the week:

Monday:  we had breakfast burritos

Tuesday:  we had chicken pot pie

Wednesday:  we had leftovers or oatmeal (appealing choices, right?)

Thursday;  homemade pizza

Friday:  feeding the missionaries...turkey meatball sandwiches and hopefully some sides to go with it!?!  and maybe a dessert

Saturday:  we're hosting a backyard/campfire birthday party for my daughter.  We'll have cook-your-own-hot dogs, 7 up marinated chicken (for the hot dog hating girls), salad bar and a smores bar (instead of cake). 

Sunday:  Lately (like all of 2016) I haven't been wanting to make a big Sunday dinner.  We go to church from 11 to 2 and when we get home everyone is starving, so we usually eat a grab-whatever-you-can-see lunch.  Then if I make dinner, no one is really hungry and it's a lot of work.  So, I've been wanting to simplify.  I'm thinking that we'll have leftovers from the party on Saturday, so that's what we'll have on Sunday.  

What's your weekly menu looked like this week?  Did it involve oatmeal or pizza?  What are your favorite ways to make smores?  I'd love some new ideas for my daughters smores bar at her party.  Yum!!!

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
