Week 365 Menu

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  I'm pretty excited for today, mainly because I am planning on NOT getting in my car and running errands.  Amazingly my kids don't have any sports of any kid tonight, so we can just stay home, eat dinner sitting at the table, do homework, have family night and hopefully get the kids in bed.  And only 13 more days of school left!!!!

I am planning on doing some closet cleaning (I have a whole room that is scary, very scary and it needs to be marie-kondoed) and bathroom cleaning too.  

I've got to make some bread today.  My daughter made some perfectly, fluffy, yummy bread over the weekend, but it was gone in a flash and one of my boys had to have crackers and cheese in his lunch instead of a sandwich.   My poor kids have had plenty of lame lunches lately since I haven't been good at buying or making bread.  Usually my daughter makes it and we have plenty around.  

I'm loving watching my garden grow.  I planted it two weeks ago.  We've been gathering a bowls full of strawberries too.  Yummy.

Menu time...

Monday:  spaghetti, fresh whole wheat bread, corn on the cob

Tuesday:  homemade pizza

Wednesday:  breakfast burritos

Thursday:   grilled chicken, sweet potato quinoa salad (my favorite), 

Friday:   teriyaki meatballs, rice/quinoa, broccoli

Saturday:   slow cooker kalua pork (use for cafe rio pork tacos/salad and freeze some for later)

What are you making this week?  Feel free to share your menus.  I love it when you do.  Have a great Monday!

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

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

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
