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

This week just flew by didn't it? We had some good dinners and I plan to review a few of the new recipes we tried. They were voted winners by all family members and will definitely show up on the menu again.

This weekend will be a little more relaxing than last weekend (last weekend was nuts!). We'll have our usual pizza dinner on Saturday and Doug's father's birthday celebration is Sunday -- we'll go to his parent's house and I'm taking that Chocolate Lover's Birthday Cake. The week is a little busy for Doug -- he has some dinner work commitments so the kids and I will take it easy on those nights.

On Monday we will celebrate the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so even though we're having birthday cake on Sunday, we'll have it again on Monday (such a treat!). Since Sunday's cake is rich and chocolaty, Monday's cake will be light and not chocolate. It's one of my favorite cakes -- simple flavors, but delicious!

Lunch: Skyline Chilitos at home
Dinner: Pizza -- maybe a pepperoni and sausage and mushroom

Lunch: Chipotle after Mass
Dinner: Birthday Party -- taking Chocolate Lover's Birthday Cake

Lunch: leftover pizza
Dinner: Continental Beef, noodles, green beans, Butter Brickle Cake

Lunch: burgers, veggie sticks
Light and Spicy Fish, Cilantro rice, cabbage salad, Cinnamon Ice Cream

Lunch: grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, fruit
Baked BBQ Chicken, Cream Cheese mashed potatoes, buttered corn

Lunch: fast food
Dinner: Overnight French Toast, fresh fruit

Lunch: Birds' Nests
Dinner: Rigatoni and Sauce, garlic bread

I'm glad I inspire you, Anne, because I hardly inspire myself!:o)
This week, one kid asked for the spicy fish and the BBQ chicken is an easy dish we all love, but I haven't made in a while. I'll post the recipe later this week. I think my kids could eat something BBQd every night!
