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


I'm a little late getting to the menu this week. The latter part of the week was spent getting ready for a Confirmation, and then most of today was spent at or celebrating the Confirmation, but now I'm ready to focus on the chores at-hand.

My freezer is full again and I can't even say what it's full of but it's not dinner food. A bag of this and a box of that and suddenly I couldn't squeeze in even a frozen muffin if I wanted to. I think we'll spend our breakfasts and lunches eating it part-way (at least) empty and just plan meals for dinner.

Tonight Faith and I are having a girls' night alone and I'm not planning a meal for that -- chips and dip? Ice Cream and sauce? Yogurt and fruit? Who knows?

Brunch: Egg, turkey bacon and cheese sandwiches, fruit and yogurt
Dinner: Pork Tenderloin with Korean Barbecue Wet Rub, Garlic Smashed Potatoes, House Salad, Rustic Whole Wheat Bread

Dinner: Beef Barley soup (made with beef stock and some pot roast and gravy I stored in the freezer), Challah

Dinner: Breakfast burritos, fresh fruit, tater rounds (from the freezer)

Wednesday -- Feast of St. Patrick
Dinner: Irish Beef and Guinness Stew, Irish Soda Bread, Guinness and Bailey's Irish Cream Cupcakes

Dinner: Asparagus Chicken a la King, brown rice, salad

Friday -- Feast of St. Joseph
Dinner: Salmon in foil, St. Joseph Salad, Palermo Bread, St. Joseph Cupcakes

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is contstantly picking away at our freezer and planning meals! I usually hang a list of the fridge, showing what meals we can have during the week. That morning I pick what is for that night and then later cross it off the list!
