Menu Plan Monday

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s edition of Menu Plan Monday. With the fair behind us, things have definitely seemed quieter this week. Band camp starts today for the oldest, so the girls and I celebrated the end of the “normal” phase of summer with lunch and frozen yogurt eaten out last Friday. How much […]

Happy Monday to everyone! Fair judging is over, and a good thing this year was that the girls all avoided red ribbons. The foods projects all went well, with … hmmm … I think a blue ribbon and 3 honor class ribbons for the strawberry freezer jam, microwave Milky Way candy, yeast rolls, and Old […]

Menu Plan Monday has arrived again. Anything special going on for Memorial Day at your place? It’s looking like a fairly quiet day here. Here’s the menu plan: Monday: I found this recipe for Black Bean Edamame Salad that I’d like to try. I think it would be great with tortilla chips. It looks a […]

Menu Plan Monday again. Although it has been a cool week here, my snap peas have popped up and the tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini I planted are looking good. Strawberries planted last year look good as well, although small. They should produce in about a month, hopefully. Green beans have been planted and are just […]

Menu Plan Monday

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It’s a special week as we lead up to Easter and celebrating the Lord’s resurrection. It’s also a really busy week, with several daytime and evening activities. That always makes menu planning a challenge, but it makes me extra glad that I have a plan so that cooking is less stressful […]
