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 next week our vegetable and fruit co-op begins. I mentioned before that I've never done a co-op and I really don't know what to expect. According to the co-op schedule I could be getting green onions, kohlrabi, lettuce, peas, radishes, and spinach. I could also getting strawberries. But apparently the growing season hasn't cooperated with the plans, so I really don't know what I'm getting. Hence, my plans could be for naught, but I'll give it a shot. I'm not going to buy many vegetables at the store though, because I can't stand waste. So, I'll just use what I have in the house if our delivery is skimpy.

My mom's birthday is tomorrow. I'll not say how old she is, but I'll tell you she looks younger than she is! She requested a Mexican feast, so we'll have Chicken Fajitas and all the toppings, Margaritas, yellow rice, and she requested brownies and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Yum!

And don't forget to bake a birthday cake on Sunday -- Pentecost is the birthday of our Catholic Church.

Lunch: Asiago Roast Beef Sandwiches, chips
Dinner: Margaritas, Chicken Fajitas, salsa, chips, yellow rice, Deep Dish Brownies, vanilla or Milky Way ice cream

Lunch: grab a bite out
Dinner: Buttermilk Brined Pork Chops, Roasted Yukon Gold Potato Salad (making it up), Marinated Green Beans,
bread, Birthday Cake

Lunch: Tuna salad sandwiches
Dinner: Bratwurst on the grill, corn on the cob, baked beans

Lunch: Turkey sandwiches
Stromboli, salad

Lunch: Lunch Munchy Corn Dog Muffins
Chicken Cilantro Enchiladas, sour cream, salsa, Lime Cabbage Salad (maybe I'll have some kohlrabi to put in this)

Lunch: Nachos
Orecchiette with Fontina Cheese Sauce and Marinara, maybe with some grilled chicken sausage, salad (this meal is Peach's request and she's not really sure about the whole thing -- she's shootin' from the hip)

Lunch: Bagels and cream cheese
Dinner: Tuna Tortas with Pico de Gallo, fruit, Strawberry Margarita Pie (celebrating the last day of school!)

I was in a co-op for a few years. I really loved it, although, you're right, it is hard to plan. I have never used The Joy of Cooking as much as I did then!
