Another busy week ahead of us. DD has volleyball games, VB practice, music lessons and practice, etc. And most seem to be scheduled for the dinner hour. We are also hosting an open house for our church family Saturday evening to honor missionary friends who are currently in the States. I’m planning easy menus to accommodate all the activities we have planned.
40 minute buns
Regarding the “40 minute buns”…I double the recipe, except for the yeast. I use 4 teaspoons of yeast which equals 2 envelopes. I let the dough rise for about an hour, then punch down, form into rolls, and let rise again for about 40 minutes. Then bake. I like the better development of flavor and texture with the longer rising times, but the original recipe works fine if you’re in a hurry.
macaroni and cheese
spaghetti / sauce
veggies / dip
BBQ pork steaks
Alton Brown’s pot roast ~ Delicious!!
I plan to show you how I make spaghetti sauce, the potato/sausage soup, and Alton Brown’s pot roast, if I remember to take pictures! Hopefully, I’ll be posting those later this week.
You will find lots of menu ideas and recipes at Menu Plan Monday. If you don’t plan a weekly menu, give it a try! It saves time, effort, stress, *and* money.
