Menu Plan Monday


Howdy everyone! How was your weekend? I am soo tired - we played hard (had a great time at the fair) and worked even harder! We tackled a front flower bed (removed all the shrubs and rocks) and I think every bone in my body hurts...but, it's a good hurt! I am so glad to get that checked off my to-do list - yay!

Here is the menu for the week:

MONDAY: Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
TUESDAY: tacos
WEDNESDAY: Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Tomato and Basil served with Oven-crisp potatoes - looks delicious!

THURSDAY: Crock Pot Hobo Dinner
FRIDAY: leftovers

I met a sweet soul last week, Holly, (took a photography class she teaches) and she told me about the local co-op. We are going to join and I am so excited! I had a look at all the organic foods that are offered and I can't wait to place my order. This is something that has been on my heart to do for my family for a long time now and I think we will benefit greatly from eating better foods. So, I am going to start planning my meals around the foods I get from the co-op. They offer a lot of variety - organic milk, free-range eggs and even buffalo meat. It should be really interesting and a first step for our family towards healthy living!

It's official. We can't be friends. Healthy? Yuck. Give me oreos and dr. pepper. :-) When you mentioned Holly I thought for a second my Holly, but then I realized who you were talking about. Glad you liked it... I took a class from her back when Claire was little. She is a talented girl!

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
