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

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
