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 learned a lesson this week. One that I, apparently, need to relearn every once in a while. After feeding my brother's family dinner last Thursday and Friday (and then on Sunday and Wednesday), I decided that I would not go to the store for my weekly shopping. Since my brother is not very good at planning ahead, I ran to the store five times while he and his family were here, between Thursday and Wednesday. I spent much more time shopping that if I had sat down and planned my trip, and I spent much more money (and it wasn't because I was feeding five more). Urg.

It was a good reminder -- planning saves time and money.

Fortunately this weekend will make up for all that work, because we've been invited to dinner elsewhere on Saturday and Sunday. And all I have to bring is dessert. Awesome.

Dessert: Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cupcakes

Lunch: Omelets
