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

We had a pretty good week of food at our house. I feel like I had good success with some low-fat cooking (and eating) and our snacking has improved immensely (more on that later). We have a three-day weekend ahead and college boy is coming home on Sunday for the day (the benefit of going to college 20 minutes away). He requested Chicken Fried Steak and my Cheddar Dill Bread. I'm not even going to attempt a low-fat Chicken Fried Steak, so I will abstain and eat sides for dinner, which is not a hardship for me. The rest of the week is a combination of some new and some old.

Lunch: Skyline chili
Dinner: Pizza, pepperoni, sausage/mushroom, and a Fontina, Caramelized Onion and Pancetta pizza


Dinner: Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed potatoes, Bacon Corn, Sauteed Summer Squash, Cheddar Dill Bread
, Better than everything Cake

Lunch: leftover pizza
Dinner: Chipotle Burgers with slaw, Sweet Potato Fries, Fruit Dip

Lunch: baked potatoes
Dinner: Cream of Potato Soup, King Arthur Simple Rustic Loaf

Lunch: chili dogs
Cuban Crock Pot Pork, Black beans and rice

Thursday -- Feast of St. Agnes
Lunch: quesadillas
Grilled Chicken MTB Sandwiches, tossed salad, Lamb cupcakes

Lunch: pancakes
Dinner: Spaghetti with Marinara (Pasta with peas for me), bread, salad

* Tried and true
* New to me

You're my menu-planning heroine. Seriously.

And I made the cookie brittle last week and posted it on Confab! It was AWESOME.
