This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Menu Plan Monday

I fell off the menu planning wagon and am making an attempt to climb back up again!

Between rehearsals and recitals and travel and yucky illnesses we were doing good just to eat something! Time to eat with a plan again.

Also I haven’t been eating as many salads as I was in when I was planning menus (I was eating a salad with almost every meal—kept me from eating a lot of other goodies) so hopefully my green leafy intake will increase also. One thing we have managed to do is switch back to turkey burger instead of ground beef or ground chuck, a little healthier and can we say 89 cents a pound??!

So here is my little plan:

Monday—Good ole Tacos—we haven’t had them for a while so this will be a treat for everyone. But made with turkey burger.
Tuesday—Turkey burgers on the grill, corn on the cob, tomatoes
Wednesday—Sam’s rotisserie chicken, again a favorite that we haven’t done in awhile, asparagus and potatoes.
Thursday—(late night, last one until fall—whoohoo!!!) I might ask my DCG if he would make us pancakes and sausages and eggs to come home to. They boys are always good with that. Add a little fruit and it is good sleepy food.
Friday—something on sale that can be grilled! ‘Tis the season and there is no reason not too. I will be getting some fresh bakery bread and whatever veggie looks good (and hopefully cheap).

Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie! Visit her and all the creative cooks for some great ideas.

Just a note to let everyone know that during the week of June 4-8 I will be giving away 5 new books!! Check back then to see what books are being given away.
