Week 366 Menu

Hi everyone!  Did you all have a great weekend?  We had a great one.  We did plenty of work around the house (cutting down trees, etc.) but also threw in lots of fun things that made it feel like a holiday weekend.

Yesterday we went cherry picking and got lots of beautiful, sweet Rainier cherries.  Living near fruit orchards is one of my favorite things about living in Washington.  It amazes me every time I pick fruit off of a tree.  We also have been enjoying raspberries and strawberries from our garden.  

My kids are in school this week and next week and then we're finally out for the summer.  Luckily things are winding down and it's kind of nice to have the kids occupied at school and not have our evenings as crazy busy as they have been.

Menu time...

Monday (Memorial Day):  we grilled burgers, corn on the cob, watermelon, etc.

Tuesday: fried potatoes, onions, peppers and sausage

Wednesday:  spaghetti

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

Friday:  bbq chicken tinfoil dinners

Saturday:  easy night


What are you planning this week for dinner?  Are you done with school and in summer vacation mode?  Feel free to share your menus, I love it when you do.  

Oh, and don't forget that I'm not on facebook anymore, so be sure to follow me on instagram.

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
