Week 403 Menu: What we ACTUALLY ate

Hi there!  Just noticed that I haven't posted AT ALL in May and it's already halfway over.  The first week of May my daughter and I went on the best mother-daughter trip to see some of our favorite people from New Mexico, whom we haven't seen since we moved over two years ago.  I went to BYU Women's Conference and my daughter and her friend hung out and got spoiled by grandparents.  

Last week we were getting back into the groove of things after being gone.  I actually made dinner almost every night, but never posted my menu, so I thought I should do it know, because if I don't blog about it, then it's like it never happened.  :)

Monday:  we had breakfast burritos with homemade salsa

Tuesday:  we had sandwiches

Wednesday:  we had grilled pork chops, orzo pilaf, broccoli and fruit

Thursday:  we had turkey quinoa taco skillet (I love to eat this for lunches in taco salad form!!!)

Friday:  my family had BBQ chicken tinfoil dinners and I had the yummiest pesto margherita chicken  at Twig's with some friends at a baby shower/dinner out.  

Saturday:  pizza - I got my favorite thin crust veggie since it was practically Mother's day

Sunday:  my family helped with dinner - 7up grilled chicken, potato salad (w/out eggs since I'm a hater), my daughter made salsa, veggies, fruit and to-die-for lemon brownies

What about you?  Do you remember what you ate last week?  It's a great brain exercise to try to remember...for me at least.  :)

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
