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!

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

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

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
