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

Well, there's not much exciting on the menu this week. We have a couple of busy evenings to work around, with easy meals on those nights. I'm trying just a few new recipes this week, on Monday night and Wednesday. And I'm trying a new dessert on Sunday. The kids have been asking for a Baked Alaska, so I'm going to give it a whirl. The recipe I chose is a cross between a pie and a traditional Baked Alaska. I'll let you know how it turns out.

This past week we thoroughly enjoyed Sunday's Spring Risotto with Peas and Zucchini (in fact, that entire meal was a hit), Tuesday's Cappuccino Coolers (I've already have requests for them again) and Thursday's Tortellini Soup (very tasty!).

Not much exciting?! I have been craving carmel popcorn for some while...but I still haven't picked up the darn corn syrup!! How do you think it'd turn out minus corn syrup? Only kidding...I received some chocolate today and that should hold me over until I can get to the store!! :o)

P.S. I don't know what changed but I'm happy to report that your page is loading for me again without any problems!

I am a keen reader of food blogs but just stumbled upon yours. I really like the clean design and simple layout. I started blogging myself a year ago and always thought that clean design was key. The fact that you also have good photos does help a lot. I have just started a website for bloggers, chefs and foodies to meet and share all their photos, recipes and videos called Anyway keep the great work up on the blog, have it bookmarkd now and talk soon. Cheers
