Week 371 Menu

Hi there!  We just got back (can I say "just" even though it's Thursday and we got home on Sunday evening?) from a trip to Utah.  It was a nice break/vacation/family visit and I wish I was in the mountains right now without wi-fi or phone and no laundry or weeds to pull.

Anyway...I decided since it's Thursday that I better menu plan for the week.  My family appreciates it when I have a plan and actually make dinner.  I didn't make dinner at all on Tuesday and while it was super great to not have any dishes to wash, I think my family wanted more than just quesadillas for dinner.  Ha!

My garden is starting to give us lots and lots of deliciousness:  green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, a few cherry tomatoes, sweet onions, lettuce, carrots and a handful of berries.  It makes side-dish planning super easy, we just have lots of fresh veggies every night.  If you want to see more about my garden check out my instagram feed.  

So, here's my plan for the week:

Monday:  we had grilled teriyaki salmon, cous cous and lots of veggies from my garden (my 7 year old requested this for his birthday but we were out of town)

Tuesday:  we had quesadillas, strawberries from the garden, carrots & dip

Wednesday:  we had skillet teriyaki meatballs, quinoa and/or rice, blanched green beans and broccoli

Thursday:  chicken lime tacos   

Friday:   chicken stew

Saturday:  yogurt parmesan chicken tenders, baked potato fries, roasted butternut squash

Sunday:  grilled dr. pepper pork tenderloin, rice, garden veggies

That's my plan for the week.  What are you (or have you been) eating this week?  Feel free to share, I love it when you do!

P.S.  You can find all #371 of my weekly menu posts here.  And my recipe tab is still under construction, so head on over to the side bar and hopefully you can find the recipe you need by the label.

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
