Menu Plan Monday 9/11/2017

Happy Menu Plan Monday, friends! I hope your weekend was good. I know that commenter Peg is in the midst of Hurricane Irma in Florida, so I’m keeping her in my prayers. It felt almost wrong that the weather was beautiful here this weekend. Saturday we had a delicious potluck lunch to kick off the […]

Happy Labor Day, friends and menu planners. Are you enjoying unofficial fall so far? It has been really nice here, with cool days overall (although today is forecasted to reach 87).

First, let me apologize for Menu Plan Monday posting on Wednesday this week. Other obligations needed to happen on Monday and Tuesday, but I thought you still might enjoy hearing about last week, and seeing this week’s recipes. Plus, I always enjoy reading about what’s going on with each of you in the comments. So. […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday! Here’s a photo of chocolate lover’s delight, which I made to celebrate daughter #3’s first day of her junior year of high school.

Hi Menu Plan Monday friends! How was your week? It was a nice one here; busy, but nothing too crazy. I have to tell you about a graduation/farewell party we went to Saturday night. It was for a girl I’d given piano lessons to. It was the most amazing event I’ve been to in years […]

Happy final-day-of-July Menu Plan Monday! I hope you’ve all had a good week. Here, the highlight was marching band camp beginning for daughter #3. Here you can see a picture. They’re just starting to find their locations for the various places in the show that they learn. The weather has been pretty good so far […]

Happy steamy Menu Plan Monday, everyone! I say steamy because yesterday we took a trip to Indiana Dunes, and it really was hot. Humid, and yuck. Thankfully, things are improving starting today (which is good, because daughter #3 begins her 3-week band camp which runs 8-4 each weekday). Up above you can see a shot […]

Happy July Menu Plan Monday, friends. The county fair is in full swing here. The photo above is from Friday’s foods auction, where 4-Hers who earn a blue ribbon on their foods project can sell a similar item at an auction. “Real” auctioneers do the auction, and the first time I experienced it, I was […]
