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

The range arrived. At 5:35 p.m. I was a little bit annoyed that it arrived so late while I was trying to make sure we had a dinner, but all was good. The delivery men unhooked the old one and scooted in the new one in just a few minutes. They noticed a little dent (actually it's a dent from the inside out -- very strange) and asked if we would rather order a new one or get a discount. Sears gave us $100 off, so we'll keep the little dent. I don't think it will bother me, it really is very little.

As soon as they left I started the Peas and Bacon on my new stove and it's really very lovely. It feels like a high-end stove, for a not-so-high-end price. The burners are super-duper hot, and I have a feeling that the microwave above it is going to need to be replaced sooner than later. It has always been a little too close to the stove, and now it feels really close -- I don't want to melt it!

I think cooking this w
eek will be extra fun, so I'm adding a few new dishes I've wanted to try to our menu.
