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

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
