Menu Plan Monday 8/22/2016

Happy Menu Plan Monday, everyone! This, as always, has been a busy week. My oldest daughter moved 3 hours away back to college and her classes start tomorrow. She is doing really well, but still, as a mom it’s so sad to see her leave. I guess you experienced moms know all about this, though. […]

Menu Plan Monday 8/8/2016

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday, 8/8/16. Typing the date, I think of Princess Beatrice (she would be Britain’s Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson/”Fergie”‘s oldest daughter. I always remember that she was born 8/8/88, so a happy 28th birthday to her! So, another hot and humid week it is here. We are pretty much in drought […]

Menu Plan Monday 8/1/2016

Welcome to the first Menu Plan Monday of August! This summer, like so many summers, is flying by. Just the other day, it seems, I was so excited about my oldest daughter coming home from college in early May. Now, a couple of weeks and she’ll be heading back. My second daughter will be a […]

Menu Plan Monday

Welcome all to another Menu Plan Monday! It’s a really hot one here — heat indexes around 100 (which means that the actual temperature is in the 90s, but our Midwestern humidity kicks in to make it feel hotter). My youngest daughter begins band camp today, which runs 8-4 each weekday for the next 3 […]

Menu Plan Monday 7/11/2016

A happy Menu Plan Monday to you all! What has your past week been like? Typical summer week here, although the weekend was busy.

Menu Plan Monday 7/4/2016

Menu plan Monday again — this time on the 4th of July! Happy holiday to everyone! It’s a quiet holiday here. The neighbors we often celebrate with are in China. I’m okay with not doing anything, though — we are recently back from a big vacation, had a trip to a theme park, and there […]

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday, post-Alaska. Last week I began posting about our trip, and I’ll continue that in the weeks to come. Are you planning a vacation this summer? If so, let me know where you’ve visited in the comments. I know frequent commenter Peg was up here in Indiana and Ohio recently! This […]

Menu Plan Monday: Food in Alaska

Today’s Menu Plan Monday is a bit different. I just returned (at 2 this morning, to be exact) from 11 days in Alaska. Thanks to all who visited the blog during that time. I don’t think I’ve been away from it for that long since its 2008 inception. Food — Alaska Needless to say, I […]

Menu Plan Monday: Grocery Planning

Welcome to another menu plan Monday! This one is a little different. We’re preparing for vacation 2016, with which I will thrill and bore you after our return. While we’re still here, I plan on dinners involving as many leftovers as possible. Since that’s not too interesting, I thought today I might go into a […]
