Menu Plan Monday

We had quite the storm last night.  The girls always can't sleep through the storm, so unfortunately I don't either.  Every time I would drift off someone would poke me.  The worst of it all is when the power went out I believe it fried the computer monitor (it was old and dying).  Not a good thing for me.  Luckily my hubby has a laptop so atleast I can post.  The bad thing, no pictures and I am laptop challenged!!  I am praying it is not the whole computer that is fried.....for I procratinated backing up my pictures for the last month.  YIKES!  I guess this panic moment will teach me a lesson. 
Saturday night was the Young Women General Broadcast and as a stake we always host a dinner before.  We served haystacks and it was a hit!  We (4 of us) cooked 20 pounds of rice and there was none leftover.   Somehow though I came home with a gallon of the chicken gravy!  I guess that is what I get for saying I would take a LITTLE bit.  So you can probably guess what my family is eating this week....

  1. I hate computer problems! I'm on the laptop as well, because AJ clicked on a pop up 3 weeks ago and infected our computer with a nasty virus (needless to say it crashed). It is still in the "shop". Nate Stewart got married Saturday. It was a darling reception. They filled trifle bowls with swedish fish and m&ms, then served bar cookies, dipped pretzels, and strawberries. They served Stewart soda for beverages. I need to take notes for future reference(perish the thought).

  2. Oh Yummy! Your plan sounds wonderful. Save a place for me at your table!! Now that I'm cooking for only one, my meals are very simple, and I don't plan as much as I used to. I normally cook a lot on the weekend and freeze for dinner during the week. It saves me a lot of time for things I would rather do. ♥

  3. Sorry about the computer. Thanks for the reminder to back up everything. I'm horrible about taking care of that. Mister Linky is up for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday. I thought we might get an early start before the holiday weekend. There's a giveaway going on as well. Come on over!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
