Menu Plan Monday 10/23/17

Happy Menu Plan Monday, everyone! This is the first week of the season where we have snow predicted on the forecast — for this coming Sunday morning. I hope it won’t happen that soon, although the first snow is always exciting. And the weather is turning quickly, considering that yesterday I still was taking daily […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday to all of you! Did you have a nice weekend? Here, I went to my sister’s where we met my mom for a belated birthday lunch and then a free library class on making pysanky eggs. Those are the Ukrainian eggs you may have seen. The woman teaching the class was […]

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday! I am relieved the weekend is over. It wasn’t relaxing at all, but it was filled with fun events. Near the end of last week, you might remember I went to my mom’s. I hadn’t realized that the timing coincided with the town’s Oktoberfest, so I spent a little time […]

Happy October, menu planners and friends! It was a great weekend here — lovely weather in the 60s (which was especially appreciated after the unusual upper 80s we’ve had recently), and a marching band festival hosted by our school on Saturday. I always volunteer at this and it is something I look forward to each […]

At the Indiana competition where the band usually spends […]

It felt almost wrong that the weather was beautiful here this weekend. Saturday we had a delicious potluck lunch to kick off the […]

Up above, you can see daughter #3 and a few of her friends 🙂 playing the National Anthem at the football game Friday night. […]

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. It’s been a long-time favorite; basically, just prepare a pan of brownies, cut them into pieces, and then layer them with a carton of Cool Whip and one […]
