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


We're headed for another busy week in our household getting ready for graduation for one son and the end of the school year for the others. I'm really trying to watch our budget right now -- since we have a big party coming up. So, if you notice some really downright cheap meals on the menu -- that's what's going on. I continually notice prices rising at the grocery store, and my bill, even thought I'm fairly consistent in what I buy, is rising each week. I keep thinking, "Some thing's got to give." But, I don't think they will -- at least not the grocery prices. My Giant Eagle has chicken thighs and round steak on sale for a great price this week, so I'll take advantage and make two meals with those. I may even make extra for freezing a meal ahead.
