Menu Plan Monday

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It’s been a busy week here, and honestly, I have felt pretty depressed about the events in our nation. As a family-friendly blogger, I feel a real responsibility to review and recommend only companies I can feel good about supporting as a Christian. Over the weekend, I chose to remove my […]

Menu Plan Monday 6-22-2015

  Happy summer to all you readers! It officially began yesterday, June 21, although it has seemed like summer for a while. This is a busy week here, with the two younger girls finishing up summer gym classes (Yay! Now I think all my girls are finished with gym class forever!), and the oldest heading […]

So after all the anticipation, graduation 2015 is history. Congrats to all the Homestead grads! Our open house went well, and I’ll share more about the details in the week to come. I know that many online resources helped me as I planned it, so maybe some of my ideas can help someone else. My […]

Menu Plan Monday 5-18-2015

Another May Monday, which means we’ve just finished another full weekend. The highlight was the piano recital: I always enjoy the recital immensely, although they make me nervous — it’s kind of like having 17 kids! I always hope each of them performs well enough that it is a good experience for him or her. […]

Welcome to another menu plan Monday in the busy month of May! Over the weekend, my oldest two girls celebrated birthdays. Since I don’t cook as usual on the weekend, we’ll feature their specially-chosen birthday meals this week. Monday: Southwest Turkey Meatloaf — daughter #1’s choice. She turned 18; where do the years go? Also […]

Menu Plan Monday

May’s first Menu Plan Monday has arrived! I hope you are enjoying great weather where you live. It is nice here, with trees and flowers in full bloom. Prettiest time of the year. May is always one of the busiest months here, so excuse the quick-and-easy recipes. Then again, I figure if I’m busy, many […]

Menu Plan Monday

Welcome to another menu plan Monday! This past week was so busy that I’m happy to report this week looks a bit quieter — or as quiet as it ever gets, with three teens and 18 piano students. Hard to believe by the end of the week it will be May, which is always one […]

Menu Plan Monday

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It is spring, although the temperatures here don’t really reflect that yet. We’re in the 40s today, and for the foreseeable future. But many friends are mentioning that they see flower greenery peeking through the ground, and when I go out to investigate, I might discover the same thing. Indoors, at […]
