Week 390 Menu

This was my week last week:  trying to stay positive, yummy cookies, and "ice ice baby."
Can you believe that a good chunk of January is already over?  I feel like my kids are still starting to go back to school from Christmas break.

Last week was very interesting.  I got to sleep in a lot.  I made a lot of quesadillas for lunch.  I ate a lot of cookies.  Here's what our week looked like, school-wise.

Monday:  no school (Martin Luther King day)
Tuesday:  the kids went to school all day, but my little guy was coughing and skipped preschool
Wednesday:  no school due to freezing rain
Thursday:  no school due to freezing rain
Friday:  2 hour delay, but the kids all went to school for a while, even my preschooler

I'm very thankful that the ice is all melting.  Our snow is sslllllllooooowwwwlllllyyyy starting to melt.  Weather is looking up and spring is getting closer every day.

Hoping we're back to our regular schedule now.  The kids definitely appreciate basketball practice and the chance to go to school a bit more now since they haven't gone much in the last two months.

Menu time:

Monday:  honey garlic chicken, whole wheat angel hair, broccoli

Tuesday:  turkey taco quinoa skillet (this is the 4th time this has been on my menu, maybe I'll get to make it this week)

Wednesday:  grill burgers/hot dogs

Thursday:  beef stroganoff

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday:  quick french dip w/green chilies

Sunday:  grilled teriyaki salmon, quinoa/or rice, steamed veggies

What are you making this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.  (My cute friend Julia shared last week.  Love it!)

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
