Week 405 and 406

I'd rather be kayaking on the river, than going through piles of school work.  We've still got two more weeks of school.  I can feel summer calling....

I'm posting two menus this week...last week's and this week's. My husband was out of town last week, so that means that I am a little less organized at dinner time than usual.  I actually planned my week out on Tuesday this week, but didn't get around to posting it until now.  (Yay!)

So, here goes.  TWO week's of what we ate (or are going to eat).

Last week we ate:

Monday:  my daughter made super yummy chicken taquitos and homemade salsa

Tuesday:  cedar planked teriyaki grilled salmon, rice, broccoli

Wednesday: pizza party

Thursday: pancakes

Friday: fed the missionaries - breakfast burritos (eggs, hashbrowns, turkey sausage or bacon, cheese, homemade salsa wrapped in a tortilla) 

Saturday: leftovers

Sunday:  Asian BBQ chicken, cous cous, veggies

AND.....this week's menu:

Monday:  Memorial Day - grilled pizza

Tuesday: Swedish meatballs, steamed red potatoes, IKEA gravy and lingonberry, broccoli, green salad

Wednesday:  leftover meatballs

Thursday:  grilled chicken fajitas

Friday:  easy

Saturday: easy

Sunday:  grilled steak and sides

I'm loving the warm weather, the fresh fruit stocked in my fridge and almost every meal cooked on the grill.  Love summer!  

What about you?  What are you making/eating/planning this week?  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

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
