Monday Menu

So last week's menu went really well. We found some new staples (The Swiss Penne Casserole thing was awesome!) and none of the new recipes were duds. I had meant to post this week's menu earlier today, but I spent too much of Joseph's nap doing ironing and trying to figure out how to do this 5 strand braid to make a headband out of a t-shirt.....yep...something I saw on Pinterest. :)

So, here's what we are eating the rest of the week:

Tuesday: 15 Minute Bean Soup, cornbread (We were actually supposed to have this tonight but some things came up and J & I ended up having McDonalds while on my way to deliver a meal to a woman in my MOPS group who had just come home with her new baby).
Wednesday: Vinegar Glossed Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Broccoli
Thursday: Cowboy Casserole
Friday: The Other White Meat Pizza
Saturday: Chili (From the Shaw Family Favorites...will be blogged later!)
Sunday: Leftovers

As I said above, I took a meal to a lady from my MOPS group tonight. We always try to bless the families of new babies with hot meals. I signed up for tonight. She lives in Simpsonville which is about 30 minutes away, but Spice's barn is on the way, so I was planning on going to ride after I dropped the meal off. Well, Michael wasn't going to get home until after 6, so I ended up loading the Munchkin up and we took off on our food delivery mission. I had decided that even though I wouldn't get to ride, I would still go by the barn on the way home. Then lo and behold, Michael came out and watched Joseph so that I could ride. The J man even rode with me some. He is so funny. He grabs a brush as soon as we get there and brushes her belly. Then he grabs the treats. He's learning how to give her a treat, but mostly he just eats them. It was, as usual, a great way to spend an evening. Hope ya'll had a good one as well!


  1. Loved perusing your blog! I love that your little boy and Caleb were both chickens. Oh, the cuteness!

  2. You should start your own Martha Stewart-esque magazine. I do not know how you find the time to craft and plan a week's worth of homemade meals. I am impressed that a mom of a toddler doesn't have at least one night of take out pizza on the menu. I know I always do! At least I make a salad to join it though. :) Thanks for all your nice comments you leave me.
