A Tuesday Meal

From yesterday’s post, you know I have made meatball.  These freeze really well, but I just saved them for the next night.

To have A Tuesday Meal ready, place in a bread machine:

  • 1 1/3 cup of flat beer
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 TB sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 TB Butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp yeast
Set on dough cycle and set the timer for the dough to be ready when you get home.    
Remove dough.  Cut into fourths, cut each piece into sixths.  Roll each piece into round/flat pieces.  Place on slightly oiled cookie sheet.  Let rise for 30 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.   And wah-lah ,  you have cute little rolls that are slightly crunchy on the outside.
Now onto the meatballs!
Sir Husband made a gravy with beef, onions, and mushrooms (dried from last year).  Smothered the meatballs with the gravy.   We served the meatballs with the gravy over wide egg noodles.
I took one of the rolls and dug out the center.  Then placed one meatball with some gravy in it.

It fit perfectly and was sooo cute!


It was also so yummy!!

We had left over sauteed squash for a veggie.

So that was the easy meal I came up with for  A Tuesday Meal.


  • Me:  Loved the meatballs, gravy, and noodles.  Loved the meatball mini sandwich.  I was the only one who would even try it.
  • Husband:  He loved everything, including the rolls.  He just didn’t put them together.
  • The girls:  Ate a few meatballs and noodles.  No gravy.  Several rolls.  They love bread.
  • Sir Son:  He ate one meatball, no gravy, and one noodle.  He’s hungry.

  1. That bread seems easy enough…especially since it’s in the bread maker. I may have to try that soon. Our weather is dropping significantly and it’s just about soup, stew and bread weather.

  2. YUMMMMMMM!!!!!! You’re such a good cook/mom/teacher/friend!

  3. looks good, wish I could eat bread (gluten) I realized the other day that I will not be able to eat dressing at Thanksgiving. It will be my first one since finding out I can’t have gluten. I can handle day to day, but holiday food is a must- all the traditional things.

    a quick crock pot meal that is good is to put beef stew meat into the crock pot with a can of cr of mushroom soup and a can of french onion soup. let that cook 6 hours on medium. Just before serving stir in sour cream (I sometimes don’t do that and it is fine) Serve over rice or egg noodles. When I was growing up we would have stuff like this served over a slice of bread.
