Menu Plan Monday again! It has been a busy weekend here; senior band night for the oldest daughter, a dance performance for the middle daughter, and an out-of-town bonsai club trip for the youngest. Add in relatives visiting and it has been chaotic, but good. I hope your weekend was nice as well! […]

Marching band flute breakfast 2014 is history, and I hope the girls enjoyed it as much as I did. The spread was ready, and it was fun when guests began to pour in. We don’t have a lot of people over to our house, so maybe that’s part of what made this so much fun. […]
Menu Plan Monday time again! What’s the weather like where you live? My youngest daughter and I helped at a marching band event Saturday, and it was so cold here. Temps in the 40s, but with strong winds, and at times sleet and some even said a bit of snow. Not what I would hope […]
It’s Menu Plan Monday again! This weekend, I was looking around the remains of the garden. There’s not a lot; even the weeds have slowed down: From the left, we have the remains of an alfalfa patch (treats for the rabbit and chinchilla), thyme, and cilantro, and my pitiful tomatoes. The tomatoes haven’t done well […]
Menu Plan Monday time again! Here in the Midwest, at least, it is starting to feel like fall (I guess that makes sense, since today is officially the first day of autumn). Still, it seems like it’s too soon to begin the descent to winter again, especially after last year’s weather. Let’s hope for a […]
Monday: Grilled Chicken Tex Mex Packets — packet meals are popular here, since they’re so easy to personalize for each person’s tastes. Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken Wednesday: make your own pizza — I make the crust, then each person puts their toppings of choice onto their own personal pizza Thursday: Baked Potato Soup — […]
Menu Plan Monday has arrived again. Marching band competition season has started here (oldest daughter plays flute), and Saturday was our annual kick-off potluck. It features more delicious food than you can imagine (there are 311 in the band and guard, and all the families pitch in). I brought Homemade Hawaiian Rolls and they disappeared […]
Happy Menu Plan Monday, Labor Day edition! I love it when I don’t have to cook. This week, I am blessed that my kids have offered to do some of the meal prep. I am so glad all my girls enjoy cooking. I think it’s great preparation for life. Let’s see what’s on the menu: […]
Menu Plan Monday arrives on what’s a steamy hot week here in the midwest. It’s been a delightfully cool-ish summer for us up to about a week ago, so I shouldn’t complain (and especially not after the winter we experienced). But sitting at the first football game Friday night really felt like being in a […]
It’s Menu Plan Monday again. This is the first full week of school here, and my piano lessons season starts too. My schedule with lessons this year has 3 days of the week where I finish after 5. This makes it a real challenge for me to get dinner on the table around 6:00. But, […]
