Menu Monday

One of the ways we save money is to eat at home.  This takes some planning and using things from the pantry and freezer as well as smart grocery shopping.  I don't mind cooking as much as deciding what to cook.  That is why I make my menu a week in advance and get input from the family.  I am fortunate in that I do not have any picky eaters in my family.  The only problem that I have is that I feel that I cook the same things over and over.  I need to try some new dishes.  We also do not have a dessert every night.  I try to make something over the weekends for dessert (not that I am always successful in that endeavor!)

Monday - Chili beans, cornbread, sour cream, cheese
Tuesday - BBQ Chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans
Wednesday - Dirty rice with sausage, broccoli
Thursday - Home baked pizza, salad
Friday - Salmon patties, corn, green beans
Saturday - Cabbage with polish sausage, (any ideas what to serve with this?), biscuits
Sunday - Roast with vegetables (carrots, potatoes, onions, celery), rice, yeast rolls

What's on your table this week?

October is Respect Life month

I am so thankful that the birth mothers of my two children did not choose abortion.

These are my boys that God meant for us to have. 

I can't imagine life without them.  


St. Therese

St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore, and tell Him I will love Him each day, more and more.
