Week 372 Menu: No More Slacking!

Hi everyone!  I never got around to posting my menu last week and I honestly can't remember what we ate most of those days.  The week flew by really fast, and this week is flying by too!  And it's been hot too, over 100 every day this week.  I don't mind the heat too much unless I'm standing in a parking lot and then I'm sure that my legs will burn up.  I'd much rather be hot than cold. 

I started painting my son's room last week that had been painted by previous owners like an ocean.  I ripped out all the oak trim and baseboards, painted the ceiling white, and the walls gray.  My husband is pretty amazing and whipped up some craftsman trim for around the windows.  While we were doing all of this I didn't really want to make dinner.  Ha!  

Anyway...I didn't really make dinner last night and my family seemed a little disappointed.  So, I will do better!!!

My daughter is gone this week for her first time at girl's camp with girls from church.  I'm so excited for her and am hoping that she's having a great time.  It's kind of weird just being here with the three boys.  (They don't listen quite as well as she does.  Ha!)

My garden is going crazy.  I definitely have a good assortment of veggies to eat!  I started a new hashtag on instagram with my garden pictures.  #whatisonyourmenugarden

All righty...menu planning time.  We have family coming on Saturday and I'm super excited to have visitors!  Visitors = good food!  

Monday:  we had fried chicken sausage, peppers, onion and potatoes

Tuesday:  we had grilled flatbread pizza on rosemary/olive oil flatouts  - super easy and yummy (took like 10 minutes)

Wednesday:  easy night

Thursday:  grilled teriyaki salmon (it'll make my 7 year old happy), quinoa and garden veggies


Saturday:  teriyaki meatballs, quinoa/rice, garden veggies

Sunday:  honey garlic chicken, angel hair pasta, veggies, Macaroni Grill rosemary bread

Monday:  french dip flatbread wraps

Tuesday:  grill burgers, corn, pico de gallo & guacamole w/chips

What about you?  What's on your menu this week?  Have you been menu planning?  Have you been skipping out on making dinner?  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
