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


Last Sunday, my college boy Geoffrey texted me to ask how to make Braciole. He apparently had a hankering for this, one of his favorite dishes, and I laughed out loud knowing the size of his 5 x 5 foot apartment kitchen and the work involved in making this Italian dish. I promised that if he came home the next weekend, I would make it for him. I think he's bringing his roommate, so we'll have a big family meal. He requested Pumpkin Roll for dessert, so I guess I have my work cut out for me. I'll be sure to post the recipe for Braciole next week for anyone who would like to try it.

The rest of the week is pretty simple. I've noticed my grocery bills going up and up each week. Last week I had several budget meals on the menu, so I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm going to try to cut back on the weekly supplies, while stocking up on some loss leader basics that I can keep in storage.

made the broccoli cheese soup you posted a few days back this past saturday. delicious! And so easy! Unfortunately, 3 out of 6 of us ate it. Darn! I thought this would be the perfect way to get broccoli into them. Gosh I just love it. Thanks again for always inspiring my menus!
