Week 400 Menu: 400!!!

Me and my kiddos at the LDS conference center pictured with my great, great, great grandpa Parley P Pratt.
Hi there!  This is my 400th weekly menu!  I started blogging in August of 2008, almost 9 years ago!  I've posted my menus almost every week since then.  I've missed a few weeks when we were on vacation or things were super crazy and blogging had to take a back seat but that didn't happen too often.  It's been fun to look through my menus over the years.  I make a lot of the same things that I made back in the early years, not all recipes are timeless but some are.  

I was hoping to get something together for a little giveaway, but with spring break last week, a birthday last weekend, Easter coming up, and tons of other things going on I haven't gotten anything ready.  So, maybe sometime soon because 400 is a lot of weekly menus and I feel like celebrating!  Thanks to those of you that follow along!    

Anyway...we have some crazy evenings the next few nights, so I need to get menu planning to make my life less stressful.

So, here's our plan for this week (even though it's halfway over):

Monday:  tacos

Tuesday:  we had honey garlic chicken with angel hair, green beans and carra carra oranges

Wednesday:  pizza (not homemade...haha)

Thursday: fried sausage, potatoes and peppers

Friday: feeding the missionaries plus a few people - grill teriyaki burgers, 7 up chicken, baked beans, pasta salad, homemade salsa and chips, warm chocolate pudding cookies for dessert

Saturday: kid birthday party - hot dogs over fire pit, salad bar, smores bar 

Sunday: Easter - ham, funeral potatoes, big salad, roasted green beans, bunny rolls, maybe some lemon pudding cake for dessert

What about you?  What have you been eating this week?  Or what do you have planned for this weekend?  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

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

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
