Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Weekly Menu -- June 11 through 17

Well, this week's menu might get turned upside down. My oven is out to lunch. And just like every other convenience in our homes -- we are always surprised how much we use something when we don't have it. I had to
buy bread. And on Saturday night, I had to make pizza on the grill -- which is good as long as you have a broiler to cook the cheese under. Fortunately my broiler still works, so I just did a lot of running back and forth between the grill and the broiler. Last night Doug's mom brought dessert, so she saved us then. The repairman is supposed to come tomorrow, so as long as it's repairable, my menu will be fine. Otherwise, I'll be improvising. The key to that is using what you have on hand and not make five trips to the grocery just to improvise. That's where the ingredient search at allrecipes comes in handy.

If my oven is fixed and I can make them, Tuesday's Sour Cream Cupcakes are really good. They are a doctored-up cake mix recipe. But they're much better than cake mix -- I'm pretty much a snob when it comes to mixes. I'll post the recipe on Tasty Tuesday. And Thursday's Raspberry Swirl Brownies are a doctored up brownie mix. They're also really yummy and would be great for a cookout. I'll post that recipe, too. And Sunday night's Toll
House Pie is a family six-thumbs up recipe. It seems most people have a similar recipe, but if you don't -- definitely try it.
