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

Next week we're back to school and work and sliding back into "normal." I'm trying quite a few new recipes this week -- using the meat the I have found to be on sale this week. Giant Eagle has whole chickens on sale for $1.09 a pound in my region, so I'll buy two and put them both in the crock pot on Monday. Then on Thursday I'll use the leftovers for Asian Chicken Noodle Soup. GE also has round steak on sale (Baked Steak on Wednesday) and turkey sausage (pasta on Tuesday) -- hopefully I'll get all my meat for the week for under $20.

This week we will celebrate the feast day of two of our Catholic saints, St. Francis de Paola and St. Isidore with Italian and Spanish meals respectively.

Lunch: Skyline Chili
Dinner: Pepperoni Pizza and Cuban Chicken Pizza

Brunch: Breakfast Pizza, Fruit and yogurt parfaits
Dinner: Baked Ziti (sans sausage), bread, CPK Balsamic salad, Carrot Cake

Monday -- Feast of the Annunciation
Lunch: leftover ziti
Dinner: Baked Slow Cooker Chicken, roasted potatoes, Sesame Green beans, Chocolate Angel food cake

Lunch: fast food

Wednesday-- Feast of St. Francis de Paola

Sounds good.
Thanks for that chicken barbecue recipe; we'll be trying that in April.
As for Spanish and Italian, I can definitely manage Spanish on Friday :) and I'll see what I can do for Tuesday. I like the idea. And hm, Monday is Annunciation--angel food cake, anyone?
