Week 389 Menu: 2nd Week of January

Happy Monday!  Today was another snow day.  We didn't get any new snow, but it was mostly to let the snow plows try to clear the roads and parking lots so eventually the kids can go to school.  Hopefully they'll go sooner than later.  :)

I've spent the day helping kids arrange playdates, get into and out of their snow clothes, making pepperoni bread for lunch and doing a little painting on our landing and hall upstairs.

While I help my daughter make Italian potato and sausage soup for dinner, I'm posting my menu.  (We're using the Instant Pot to cook the potatoes while we get the rest of the soup prepped.  So handy!)

On to my menu:

Monday: Italian sausage and potato soup, we were going to make rosemary bread, but are running low on time, so we'll warm up some flatbread and brush it with rosemary oil and cut it in triangles instead

Tuesday: fried sausage, potatoes, peppers, onions

Wednesday:  navajo tacos

Thursday:  homemade pizza

Friday: try turkey taco quinoa skilet

Saturday:  my daughter's turn to make dinner, her choice

Sunday: Swedish meatballs, boiled potatoes, IKEA gravy, one hour rolls, green beans, salad

What about you?  What are you planning this week for dinner?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.

Happy Monday!

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
