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

You guys have been awfully quiet out there. Are you all on vacation? I contemplated not posting my menu this week (actually I thought about not posting it any more, period) but I honestly have to admit that I really post it for myself. It gives me a record of what we have eaten and when, and by linking to recipes on other websites and blogs, I can find something easily again if we like it. So, I understand if you don't read on my menu days. I won't take it personally. :o)

I'm trying to keep things simple this week as we move into the hot month of July and I continue to try to spend time each day putting food away in the freezer. I'm beginning to feel like a squirrel. Sadly, I know my stash won't last all winter!

Lunch: Skyline chilitos (made at home)
Dinner: My nephew's birthday party -- my offering is Mud Slide Cake. It's made with a boxed cake mix and canned frosting, but it's a favorite of my kids.

Brunch: Blueberry French Toast -- we didn't have this last Thursday night, we had eggs and ham and fruit instead.
Dinner: Grilled Chicken Sandwiches, Pasta Salad, melon

Lunch: French bread, cheese, meat
Dinner: Steak Sandwiches, Twice Baked potatoes, salad

Lunch: Cheese pizza
Dinner: Brats, Bacon and Onion potato salad, fruit

Lunch: Ham Cubans
Dinner: BLT and Egg Sandwiches, Cucumber Tomato Salad

Lunch: picnic
Dinner: Salmon Pesto Pasta, bread

Friday -- July 4
Lunch: grilled hot dogs, chips, watermelon
Dinner: Hot Pepper Shrimp (I'll post this wonderful recipe), roasted potatoes, green salad

* Tried and true
* New to me

Quiet, but reading!!
I post my menus for the same reason. I like a record of what I'm making and it helps me plan out for other times. It also helps me find a recipe quickly when it's time to make dinner. I just bring the laptop into the kitchen and work from there.

Barbara, your Blueberry French Toast is heavenly! I've made it several times and it's always a hit (at home and with friends).
