Menu WITH Non-Sequitur Photo

Well-- it's getting easier... Now, if I could just get ahead by 1 week! I could possibly get this thing posted by Sunday night! That would be perfect and I could get it 'scheduled to post' and not have to think about it! 
I'm such a procrastinator. (but you knew that, right?) 
On the bright side~~ just doing it, is helping TREMENDOUSLY! 
I think we're saving some money AND  supper time isn't a surprise or a dreaded issue.  


I remember when the kids were home still and Honey worked---I just dreaded the phone call before 3:30pm -- the one that ended with, "What's for dinner?"-- ack!  (followed by mad dash to the kitchen)
The only thing worse than that question was, " Do I have clean work jeans?" 
Here's this weeks' menu-- 


*** APRIL 9-15  ***  This menu is edited heavily due to unexpected events. 

Monday: 
Fresh fish, Taters and Cole Slaw 
Tuesday: 
Rice,Broccoli and Oven Fried Chicken (1 dish) 
Wednesday: 
Leftovers Ooops!  Our anniversary 29 years!!! Had dinner at our favorite Burger Place.... (I didn't forget our anniversary; just forgot to plan supper) 
Thursday: 
Dinner at His Sister's -Mini Meatloaf sandwiches ON THE ROAD…Dinner at SIL next week…well, this week now!
Friday: 
Mini Meatloaves (from the freezer) and Veggies  Love and Respect Conference—Breakfast for dinner at home.
Saturday: 
Crockpot Stew   Love and Respect Conference (small group study @ our church) —They fed us delicious Bar-b- que!

Sunday: 
Leftovers-- I hadn’t cooked all week so there were NO LEFTOVERS!  Made Spaghetti with Asparagus and Corn; Iced Tea and Peanut Butter Cookies
  


I'm thankful to God-- He straightened me out in some areas.  In others--- well, He's not finished with me yet!

'SHABBY DOOR STOP' 

  • Go out in the yard, take a brick; 
  • bring it in the house 
  • wrap strips of an old sheet around it. 
  • Put it on the floor in front of the kitchen door (the one that slams shut  on a windy day, causing One to jump from One's own skin) 
  • --TA-dah!  shabby door stop! 

Faded Charm: White Wednesday

I have the same door stop! (Minus the strips! haha!) My DH cooks now. I am so glad! Not at all my favorite thing. I'm glad to know you came by! I hope the week is going well for you...

Weekly menu planning is something I'm yet to do. I always wing it. Your Tuesday menu sounds like something I should do this week. Love the doorstop.

Hi Pat! I really like your shabby door stop. I think I could even do that one, and we actually have a door or two that could use one. TY! Also enjoyed your meal planning ideas...I need to get on the ball and do that more often.
Blessings!

Menus help me so much too! Especially when I follow them. But seriously, just hanging it on the fridge, makes my psyche feel better! And I don't get those calls anymore about dinner or work jeans! Seriously do we share a similar life...well, some parts at least?

And the brick.....WHOA! Love that you went out and grabbed that brick for gentler, kinder reasons like keeping a door open!

Please help me to get the hang of making a weekly menu. I know much money would be saved at the grocery if I would try this.
Love your blog—I’m following!
