some leftover ideas


Last week plans for the dinners I had were rearranged and moved about and some weren't used at all.  So as I journey forth to make this week's menu I plan to include a few of the items from last week.  I do hope that this will allow for a smaller grocery bill as well!  

Sunday - Spaghetti
Monday -Asparagus Couscous and green beans
Tuesday - Leftover taco soup
Wednesday -  Grilled chicken sandwiches, hummus and chips
Thursday - Kaitie's choice: mac-n-cheese with hot dogs and salad 
Friday - Church book club meeting, lots of yummy finger foods!
Saturday - Breakfast for dinner, scrambled eggs, biscuits, bacon and fruit 

For other inspiring meal plans visit the Fabulous ORG JUNKIE!!! and Chivetalkin!  

All of the recipes are the same from last week. My highlight recipe of the week is Stir-fry! It was really fantastic!!!! The family was very impressed and even ate leftovers the next day for lunch - if you know my crew you know that's saying a lot.  I hope you all have a terrific week.  

I have began reading The Shack.  While I haven't gotten to the end yet, I have to say it has been a wonderful book.  I will be honest, as the mother of an 8 year old daughter there were some chapters that were VERY hard to get through, but after a bit of crying and heart-break for the author I have found that I am in love with the way the author portrays a relationship with God!!! I plan to finish the book this week and will post a final review of it to let you all know if it's end is as wonderful as it's middle.


Here are a few pictures of the baby of the family, Tiger Styx.
