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 past week I felt like we muddled through. Nothing exciting -- no feast days, no celebrations. It was pretty boring (although I had some happy customers on tortilla soup night and breakfast for dinner night). I'm going to try to liven it up a bit this week.

On Saturday night, we're having some company (Doug's parents and aunt and uncle) join us for deep dish pizza. Nothing exciting, but nice to share with family. We had a warm afternoon today (all of 51 degrees) and I got in the mood for a summer meal. I think we'll have a indoor picnic on Sunday evening, and maybe a movie. I'm trying one new recipe or two this week and still trying to pare down the grocery bill. Like Dori said, "keep swimming, keep swimming..."

Lunch: Skyline chilitos
Dinner: Deep Dish pizza (pepperoni and sausage with mushroom, onions, whatever), tossed salad and vinaigrette (from this recipe), Sweet Potato Pie

Brunch: Scrambled eggs with diced Ham,
Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Fried Chicken, Bacon and Onion Potato Salad, Baked Beans

Lunch: leftover pizza
Dinner: Dirty Rice
, cornbread, fruit, Peppermint Bark (gotta get rid of these candy canes)

Lunch: pancakes
Dinner: Chicken Tacos, guacamole (found here), shredded cabbage, rice, Blueberry Smoothies (found here)

Lunch: ABC Soup
Dinner: Lettuce Wraps, fruit, Bread Pudding (I'll post this recipe)
