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


I really got slammed this week and dinner suffered. It was on the table every night, but rarely with the scheduled dessert and a few times it was pretty darn late. With Doug's job change, I have to drive an hour round trip every afternoon to pick up my high schooler, and sometimes, if he's doing his homework in a teacher's classroom, I might have to wait 15 to 30 minutes for him to come out of school. That's a big chunk of my afternoon, and it's especially disruptive in the late afternoon. So this week, I'm simplifying my meals even more. Hopefully this will just be until we get used to the schedule, but I may be using the crock pot a lot more this year.

Lunch: Skyline chili
Dinner: Santa Fe Pork Chops and Firecracker Salsa, oven roasted potatoes, corn on the cob

Brunch: we're attending this event Sunday after Mass
Dinner: my brother's birthday party -- mom is cooking

Lunch: leftovers or Mac 'n' Cheese
Dinner: Green beans, Potatoes, and Sausage, Beer Bread

Lunch: Bagels and cream cheese
Dinner: Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, salad

Lunch: Chicken wrappers
Dinner: Michelle's Crock Pot Turkey and rice, buttered corn

Lunch: Wendy's chili
Dinner: Donatos style subs at home -- I'll post the recipe, crunchy veggies

Lunch: tomato soup and grilled cheese
Dinner: Linguine and clam sauce, crusty bread
