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

Some changes this week -- we are severely simplifying dinner time at our house. My young high school freshman has come home every day with loads of homework that he needs "counsel" on. He starts before dinner, because even beginning before dinner, he's still not finishing until 10 p.m. I notoriously cannot do two things at one time, so, dinner needs to be ready when he walks in the door, or extremely simple. Thus, I'm using the crock pot a few times this week, and having a few really easy dinners. Until our equilibrium balances this school year, this will be our norm -- I'm trying not to lose my mind.
