Menu Monday

Well the influenza has shown up at our home. First my oldest son and now my youngest son. So with half the kids sick and the high possibility of the rest of us getting sick this week I am posting my menu but planning on having a lot of flexibility on how this week works out. Especially if I get sick well ... they might just all be eating peanut butter jelly sandwiches for dinner for a few nights.

* Breakfasts will be waffles, fruit, cereal
* Lunches  will be mac and cheese, ravioli, turkey sandwiches with carrots, salad or fruit

Monday         Leftovers from Birthday party and salad

Tuesday          Slow cooker BBQ Chicken with
                       homemade coleslaw and chips

Wednesday     Leftover BBQ Chicken/ hot dogs
                       coleslaw and chips

Thursday        Spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, sliced carrots

Friday             Spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, salad

Saturday         Homemade pizzas and carrots

Sunday           Turkey, potatoes, stuffing, green beans,


  1. Oh! Bless your heart! We've been sick this week as well. My kids all had high fevers (as high as 104F!!) but thankfully I think we've finally beat this bug. Love the idea of doing BBQ in the slow cooker. I used to grill BBQ chicken all of the time but have no grill at the moment. I'll have to try that!

My daughter recently graduated from the program and at the graduation celebration the parents were to bring a letter they wrote to share with their child. Here is mine:

I love how you are filled with the Lord's love and show it to all around you. You have grown so much this year in Square One not only in your knowledge of the Bible but in getting closer to God. It has been so wonderful all the scripture you have memorized. Those scriptures will always be there to help guide you throughout your life.

Works For Me Wednesday How to Save Money on Books

I love to read books but our budget doesn't allow me to spend much money on that hobby so I have devised a way to read great books at no cost.

When I see a book that I find interesting on someone's blog or Facebook post that directs me to Amazon I put that book into my wishlist on Amazon. Then when I have time or the need for a new book to read. I go to my library system's online search catalog and refer back to my Amazon wishlist and see if any of the titles are available.

I can put them on hold and I get an email from my library when they are available. This little trick has saved me so much money over the years. I have been able to read some wonderful books that otherwise I could not afford.
