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 weekend is the last before school begins. My high school boy goes back on Monday and the homeschoolers begin a week from Monday -- next week I'll be busy getting ready. This weekend we have Noah's family party -- on Saturday night. We're having several varieties of pizza, none of which are standard pizza fare -- hopefully my crowd will not find them too weird. Next week I will try to keep our meals simple, as we all adjust to having the daily drive to pick up from school, and the homework load after school and in the evening. I'll try to fit in some of the kids' favorite foods, too, to make the transition happier.

Lunch: sandwiches
Dinner: BBQ Chicken Pizza, Cheeseburger Pizza, Cucumber Tomato Salad, Red, Green and Black Salad, Cream-filled Chocolate Cupcakes, ice cream

Roast turkey, mashed potatoes, Candied carrots
(Doug fell into some Columbus Clippers tickets this week, so the turkey didn't get roasted -- I just moved it to Sunday)

Lunch: bagels and cream cheese
Dinner: Cajun Burgers, Roasted Corn,
fresh fruit

Lunch: veggies and dip, cheese cubes
Dinner: Continental Beef and noodles, green vegetable (whatever the co-op brings), Dinner rolls

Lunch: Lunchmeat Sandwiches
Ham and Potato Hash, poached eggs, toast

Lunch: Pancakes
Buttermilk Brined Chicken, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Scallions, fresh fruit

Lunch: Quesadillas
Dinner: Cheese pizza

* Tried and true

i so appreciate your menus. those chocolate cream filled cupcakes will definitely be made in my home sometime soon.
I remember (long ago when i taught first grade) a parent bringing in cupcakes like this and I was shocked and amazed at how she made them! She told me the secret but I still haven't made them. I promise to change that come birthday season here in our house!
