Thursday night we had leftover Chow Mien over rice. Simple and quick only had to cook the rice.
Friday night was a rather flop. I had made hero rolls that I pictured here previously. Well they don't make good hot meatball subs, which we had with a green salad. The rolls are too sweet and too soft. They were immediately soggy. Back to the drawing board. The meatballs were great though. Made a big batch that went into the freezer.
Saturday might was dinner for 4. Baked fish with basil/garlic butter, fresh french fries, canned green beans from the garden and cole slaw made with one of my last cabbages. One still hanging on in the refrigerator.
Sunday we had Chow Mien over rice again. I really need to cut that recipe down but that was the end. Four meal for the price however is well worth it and we love it.
Monday night was veal and peppers (frozen from the garden) over egg noodles and left over green beans.
Tuesday night Cheeseburgers on potato buns, french fries and beer batter fried onion rings. Not one of our healthiest meal but oh so good.
Wednesday night was dinner for one, after a long day of grocery shopping in the city, was baked French Onion Soup from the pantry.
Did do a little baking this week also.
Same white bread for weekend sandwiches but not done in the pullman pan. Made great sandwiches from the left over meatloaf along with some vegetable beef soup from the pantry.
Potato Hamburger buns
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup potato flakes (instant potato flakes or 1/2 cup mashed potatoes)
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps sugar
1/4 cup powdered milk
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps yeast
1 In the bowl of your bread machine, add the ingredients in the order that they are listed. Make sure that the yeast is not touching the water.
2 Select basic setting.
OK so I can't leave a recipe alone. They always need my twist on them. I used a fresh cooked potato put through my ricer and for the water I used the potato water. I used just the dough setting on the bread machine and then rolled the dough out to about 1/2" or a little less and cut rolls out. Baked at 350 for about 20 minutes until they were golden brown.
