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

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
