Conversation from the recliner

This past week-end was really busy.  Poor Dennis, who did not feel good, had about all the "love" he could stand from all of us.  After telling the boys to pick up something for the 50th time, he turned to me and said:

Dennis:  I am beginning to sound like a broken record.

Me:  Dear, they don't know what records are.

:  OK, I sound like a broken CD.

Me:  Nope, 'fraid not.  Kids do not buy CDs these days.

Dennis:  Then, what do they buy?

Me:  Hmm, I suppose a mp3.

Dennis:  Then I sound like a broken mp3!!

Me:  Mp3s are digital and downloaded.  Maybe you can just be a broken link???

He was not amused!

Monday menu - Nov 4th

This week's meal plan.

Monday - fend for yourself meal!  I like this meal since everyone is on their own.  The boys will usually eat soup and Dennis and I eat leftovers.  

Tuesday - salsa chicken (Pinterest), chicken fingers, green beans, corn, pumpkin pie

Wednesday - corn dog muffins, turnip greens, potato soup, apples and caramel sauce - change in plans: One-Pan chicken and potato bake .  This was a big hit with  my family.

Thursday - Sliced Ham and Pineapple w/rolls, stuffing, broccoli, fruit salad

Friday - shrimp and grits casserole (Pinterest), cabbage, brownies 

Saturday - hot dogs, chili, buns, chips, grapes

Notice two Pinterest recipes on the menu.  I am anxious to see how the dishes turn out.  I will report on them later.

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.
