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 has been quite a week. Peach came down with a mysterious illness on Tuesday and we've pretty much been home all week long. I don't mind a home week, in fact I definitely prefer it to running around.

We had a couple of really good meals and some very yummy pancakes -- all new recipes, so I'll be sure to share as soon as I can. I have a backlog of pictures on my desktop -- evidence that I'm behind posting recipes. I can't be running up and down the stairs for Peach and posting recipes though. Hoping she turns a corner today -- I think she has watched almost every children's DVD we own and she's very tired of being stuck in bed, even if it does mean meals are delivered on a tray and mama comes when she rings the bell.

Lunch: Skyline Chili
Dinner: BBQ Chicken Pizza, salad

Lunch: BLTs and chips
Dinner: Lidia's Chicken and Potatoes, Peas and Bacon, Crunchy, Chewy, Delicious Bread


Lunch: grilled cheese and tomato soup
Dinner: Taco Salad (I like to make mine with Wendy's-style chili instead of taco meat. It's healthier with the beans and vegetables than plain meat and spices) with guacamole and chips

Tuesday -- Feast of St. Leo the Great
Lunch: pancakes
Dinner: Tortellini Soup (something like this -- I'll post my version with pictures), Italian bread, Lion Cake

Wednesday -- Feast of St. Martin
Lunch: chili
Dinner: Greek Burgers, roasted potatoes, Greek salad
If weather permits, we'll have a Martinmas bonfire and maybe some s'mores.

Lunch: quesadillas
Dinner: Pulled Pork Sandwiches (prepared in the crockpot), Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Cabbage slaw

Lunch: egg sandwiches
Dinner: Salmon Nicoise Salad, Pan de Horno (cheese pizza for kiddies)

I love your menu plans. I use a lot of your ideas. I'm just wondering what you have for snacks, though. Lunches and snacks are always hard for me to come up with.

Do you mean between meal snacks or do you mean snack foods, like munchies?

For between meal snacks we eat fruit, carrot sticks, cheese, lots of different flavors of crackers, yogurt and sometimes cereal (the boys have big snack appetites). I also like to make cinnamon toast ( ) and jelly bread. In the winter a cup of hot, sweet, milky tea or hot cocoa fills them up, too.

To keep on-hand for munching I make my Critter Crunch ( ) using whatever I have leftover, as well as a salty mix. The salty mix I make is from a Christmas cookbook ( ) and even though it's called reindeer mix we eat it all year.
