Menu Plan Monday 7-27-15

Happy last-Monday-in-July! The summer is really flying by here; how about where you are? It was a busy week at our house. My youngest daughter made it through her first week of marching band camp.

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your week? It was busy here; the kids’ 4-H projects were all turned in a judged. I enjoy the fair so much that every year I’m a little sad when it begins, just because it will be a year before it all happens again We will have 2 jars of […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It’s been a busy week here, and honestly, I have felt pretty depressed about the events in our nation.

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. […]
