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

Another meal, another day, another week -- that's about how I feel these days. I feel like I'm dragging my backside around just to get done what needs to be done. Many people have asked me how I can find the time to put together menus every week. All I can say is, if there were no menus, there would be no meals. I shop once a week and if it's not on the list, I didn't buy it, and thus we're not eating it. My menus save me every single day, and if you don't make menus, you are spending more time scrambling than you would making menus and shopping. I also plan my menus around meat that is on sale, or that I have already purchased on sale (like corned beef at St. Patrick's Day -- cheap, cheap), so I save a lot of money by planning ahead.


Lunch: Skyline Chili
Dinner: Pizza -- maybe pepperoni and mushroom, and maybe something with feta and sun-dried tomatoes (sounds good to me)

Lunch: Ham, Gruyere and Apple Sandwiches, chips
Dinner: New England Boiled Dinner, Poppy Seed Rolls, Chocolate Cream Pie

Lunch: leftover pizza
Dinner: Tex Mex Beef Enchiladas, Mexican Rice

Lunch: turkey sandwiches
Dinner: Chinese Red Cooked Pork, brown rice, Broccoli Stir Fry with Sesame and Ginger

Lunch: Tortellini Soup
Dinner: Oven Reubens (leftover corned beef), Oven Fried Onion Rings

Lunch: quesadillas
Dinner: Grilled Shrimp Tacos, Albuquerque Corn Salad, fruit kabobs

Lunch: grilled cheese and tomato soup
Dinner: Bow Tie Lasagna, bread, salad

Well, if it were the only meal I were getting, I wouldn't. But you know what they say...when in Rome. It's the only food I can think of that is really Cincinnati. If you want to try it out before hand, I have a recipe on my blog. It's better at home, I think.
