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


Monday is my college boy's birthday and we're celebrating with his grandparents on Sunday. He's going to be 20 years old -- I know I don't have to tell you how hard that is to believe. I remember so vividly the days when he was a tiny baby, how could it be that he is a man? Before we sing Happy Birthday, we'll enjoy going through the photo albums and take a trip down memory lane. Dinner, at Geoffrey's request, will include Shrimp Scampi (though I know it won't be half as good without those fresh South Carolina shrimp) and Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.

On Saturday we're having a little Halloween party with friends. Pizza will be on the menu, but we'll jazz it up with a Halloween theme.

Lunch: Skyline chilitos
Dinner: Pepperoni and sausage/mushroom pizza

Lunch: sandwiches
Dinner: Shrimp Scampi, Parsley Buttered Potatoes

Thanks for the link to the Shrimp is one of my favorites & I look forward to trying this recipes.

If you need some cute ideas for appetizers for your Halloween party, pop on over to my blog to see what I did for my 8 yr. old DGS birthday party last Sunday. I think there are a few items even your 20 yr. old would get a kick out of.

Your halloween party menu sounds so fun!

And we're big fans of Knorr pasta sauces. Creamy Pesto is requested OFTEN.
