Thoughtfully penned on November 15th, 2009 and generally concerning In the kitchen, Menu Planning

Happy Monday! We’ve been fighting a yucky cold around here for the last week or so, but hopefully everyone is on the mend now and we’re ready to start a new week. Here’s what we’ll be dining on this week:

Saturday – lunch: sandwiches, chips / dinner: tacos, guac, salsa, chips, etc.

Sunday – lunch: chicken & dumpling casserole / dinner: fend for yourselves

Monday – taco leftovers

Tuesday – biscuits, bacon, scrambled eggs

Wednesday – pot roast with potatoes and carrots

Thursday – leftover roast

Friday – grocery night, so probably pizza

Ten Things for Tuesday

Thoughtfully penned on November 10th, 2009 and generally concerning Fall Festivities, Giving Thanks

In the spirit of Thanksgiving (which is approaching much more rapidly than I like to think about), I thought I would post a list of 10 things that I’m thankful for today.

1. Jesus
2. My wonderful, loving, and supportive husband
3. Two happy, healthy little people and one more on the way
4. God’s generous and gracious provision for our family
5. Great friends
6. Our extended family who love us so much
7. Bible Study Fellowship
8. Beautiful Fall weather
9. Matt’s good job (see #4) in the midst of economic hard times
10. A brand new day, another chance, God’s renewed mercies

What are you thankful for today?

Menu Plan Monday ~ November 1-5

Thoughtfully penned on November 2nd, 2009 and generally concerning In the kitchen, Menu Planning

Welcome to the first Monday in November! I was just getting used to it being October and the next thing I know, it’s November already. What’s up with that?!

Once again, this week I’m posting our menu plan and linking up with Menu Plan Monday at orgjunkie.com. Here’s our plan for the week…

Monday – country fried steak, mashed potatoes, green peas, homemade biscuits

Tuesday – pizza or sandwiches for Matt and the kids, Bible study fellowship for me

Wednesday – sloppy joes, fries, corn

Thursday – leftovers night

Last week’s meatball stew was very tasty. I was quite pleased with how the recipe came together, and this will probably become our go-to recipe for vegetable beef soup. The only change I would make is decreasing the black pepper by a 1/2 tsp or so. I am a big pepper fan, and it was a little too peppery for me. Otherwise, this is a recipe I would definitely recommend.

Happy November! Have a great week, everyone!
