Menu Plan Monday: Thanksgiving

Welcome to another Menu Plan Monday — the picture at the top shows the view out the front window yesterday. First snow of the season, and it was a big one (4 inches). It’s kind of early here for that much snow. Hopefully it’s not a sign of things to come this winter. Did you […]

Menu Plan Monday 11/16/2015

Happy Monday, to all of you! I hope it’s been a good week where you live. My middle daughter was inducted into National Honor Society at her school, and my youngest daughter’s band completed its marching season (finally), with a 12th place finish at Bands of America Grand Nationals, featuring bands from all over the […]

Welcome to another menu plan Monday! I hope you have had a good week. It was an exciting one here; my youngest daughter participated in State Finals with her band. I got to go to our state capital to watch them perform on Saturday, which was neat.   They have a huge band (291 members), […]

So November has arrived. For the past four years, since I’ve had a child in marching band, it always seems to come careening into view, since October is so filled with marching competitions and practices.

It was really COLD sitting in those stands, even though we left after halftime. It’s probably just because my main interest […]

How are all of you friends on this fall day? I hope you’ve had a good week and are anticipating another one ahead. For me, menu planning has helped reduce the stress of daily life. If you haven’t tried planning your dinners ahead of time, give it a try this week. I think you’ll be […]

Menu Plan Monday 10-5-2015

Menu Plan Monday has arrived again. Do you make a plan each week for things you’re cooking? I have, for the past several years. I find it good in reducing stress during the week. I usually go to the grocery store just once a week, on Monday. If I have a menu plan in place, […]

Menu Plan Monday 9-21-2015

Welcome to the last partial week of summer and the first of fall! What is your favorite season? When I was younger, I would have said fall. Lately, though, I am preferring spring. However, I’m grateful to live in a place that experiences all four seasons. Each has its good points. Fall arrives Wednesday. I […]
