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

As weeks go, this past one was a good one, for meals. Everyone was pretty happy until last night when most of my children went without supper because they didn't want to eat Cowboy Beans. The beans were good, they were fairly kid friendly (mildly spicy), but they just weren't, apparently, what they wanted. I ranted (of course I did) and made threats about never cooking again, but this morning I woke up and decided that I just don't care if my kids love every meal. I'm not cooking kid food, this isn't McDonald's, and if they don't like it, tough. So I'm planning my menu with me in mind (me, me, me) and my husband. I'll cook what sounds good to me and if any one else likes it, they can eat. I'm cranky, can you tell?

I'm also tired of planning around the farm. This week I got one stinkin' bulb of kohlrabi. Hunh.

I did, however, plan this week's menu around the meat that is on sale, Father's Day and the feast of St. Josemaria Escriva (not exactly Spanish food, but the Flan is authentic).

Lunch: Burgers
Dinner: Grad party

Sunday -- Dad's Day
Breakfast: Lemon scones
Marinated Steak, Roasted Corn on the Cob, Wilted Spinach Salad, bread, Creme Brulee

Lunch: Bagels and cream cheese
Dinner: BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, bread

Lunch: ham and cheese roll-ups, crackers
Tequila Lime Grilled Chicken, black beans and rice, cabbage salad with lime dressing

Wednesday -- Nativity of St. John the Baptist (anyone for some wild honey and locusts?)
Lunch: Grilled Cheese sandwiches
Dinner: Burgers, Bacon and Onion Potato Salad, fruit salad, Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

Lunch: meat and cheese cubes, bread, fruit
Dinner: BBQ Pork Sandwiches,
baked potatoes,

Friday -- Feast of St. Josemaria Escriva
Lunch: pancakes with sunbutter
Dinner: Tortilla and Black Bean Pie
, fresh salsa and sour cream, fresh fruit, Flan
