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


With this weekend being Mother's Day, I will have much prep work to do. Even though I've chosen some fairly easy recipes, Doug will not be able to prepare the meal from start to finish (which for some reason he insists on doing on Mother's Day), so I will have to prep everything the day before so he can "pretend" he did everything. Ugh. We're in the middle of a bathroom renovation and he will probably be laying tile all day Saturday. The boys will be moving the 3 cubic yards of mulch (in between the rain) that Doug decided to have delivered today, so it should be an interesting weekend!

We're having Doug's mother for brunch and mine for dinner. I was hoping to prepare this beautiful cake with strawberries on top instead of chocolate shavings, for the church's birthday (Pentecost) on Sunday, but my mom offered to bring some Raspberry Cream Cheese Brownies which I don't have the heart or the energy to refuse, so we'll put birthday candles in the brownies and sing Happy Birthday.

I feel your pain (even though it's in the past now!) I had dinner for 8, and even though I asked for nothing, I still got extra food. There goes the planning. Oh, well. It's the thought that counts!

Hope your Mother's Day was pleasant and went off without a hitch!
