Week 375 Menu: 2nd Week of School

Hi there!  I'm happy to be back menu planning.  My family is happy that I am back at menu planning.  My husband was gone all of last week for work and half of the week before that.  I have a hard time making and planning a whiole week of menus when I know my kids don't really care that much about dinner.  I did make good dinners several times, but we also just winged it quite a few nights too.

Last week my kids went back to school.  Getting back into the swing of things happens so fast.  Now we're full into a busy schedule.  I'm trying my best to simplify our activites and be better prepared.  

I actually started writing this blog post on Monday, and now it's Thursday and I'm finishing it so I can go grocery shopping.  

So, here's what we had this week:

Monday:  Labor Day BBQ - I made this favorite dip and scotcharoos for dessert

Tuesday:  navajo tacos

Wednesday:  french dip flatbread wraps (not my best idea to use flatbread for a wrap since the meat kept falling out, I better stick with rolls or pitas)

Thursday:  bistro chicken, mashed garden potatoes, and garden green beans

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday:  fried sausage, potatoes, peppers and onions

Sunday:  taco soup (my VERY picky 7 year old requested it)

I'm off to start a post for next week's menu so I can grocery shop more efficiently!  What 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

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
