Week 382 Menu

Hi there!  How is it already Thursday?  This week has been flying by.  I'm thankful though, since I am ready for a weekend.  Except that our Saturday looks pretty jam packed!  

How was your Halloween?  Ours was pretty low-key compared to past years.  We missed a few Halloween activities because of my son's away soccer game, so I actually didn't put much thought into my kids costumes since they would mostly be wearing them at night in the dark trick-or-treating.

My daughter (shown in the above picture) tackled the job of carving our one and only pumpkin from our garden.  We tried a new technique and got the seeds out from the bottom so the top still was intact.  She got to use the saws-all with a little help from her dad and did an amazing job carving a witch.

I've got to get things together for the rest of the week and finish out my menu.  Here's what we've been eating and what tentative plan will be for the weekend.

Monday:  we had mummy dogs and taco soup before trick-or-treating

Tuesday:  grilled hamburgers, homemade baked potato chips and fruit and veggies

Wednesday:  flatbread pizzas

Thursday:  I'm making creamy chicken and mushroom soup right now and our favorite whole wheat bread

Friday: spaghetti (my family will eat noodles) and I'll try out some spaghetti squash from my garden

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  tacos

Phew, that's a relief.  Should have planned the week on Monday.  :)  Now it's your turn.  Feel free to share what you've been eating this week.  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
