Meal Plan

I have not posted my weekly menu for some time. With having surgery and having meals brought in - I have not needed to plan out a lot. Then, we had the heat wave through here and to be honest dinner was more pick up and go. Yeah for yogurt and fruit, cold cut sandwiches and veggies with dip!

Well, I am feeling better and ready to be back in the swing of things. We also are in full swing of getting our fall routines well undersay and ready fro school. So, I will try my best to start posting every Monday what we will be having for dinner. This is probably more for me than for any of you - as if reading about what we are eating is exciting enough to pop over here on Monday. :)

So here is this week's plan;

Monday: Scalloped Potatoes and Ham* / Fresh Salad (from the garden)

Tuesday: Shell Casserole* / Beets / Salad (from the garden)

Wednesday: Casey's Beans* / Homemade Bread / Salad (from the garden)

Thursday: Chicken in a Pot* / Salad (from our garden)

Friday: Homemade Pizza / Salad (from our garden)

Saturday: Steaks on the grill ** / Hobos / Black eyed peas

Sunday: Sloppy Joe's / Veggie Sticks / Brownies

*Made in the Crock pot

**From meat given to us (what a blessing!!)

I have planned a lot of the meals for in the crock pot due to the weather. This way if it is too hot to cook I can put the pot downstairs and not heat up the kitchen with cooking. We are doing a lot of salad. I was a bit ambitious with planting salad stuff in the garden this spring.

I use the Fix it and Forget it Cookbook for my crock pot meals. I LOVE this cookbook. It comes in handy during the school year too - when I want to have dinner done before we start school.

Hope you have a wonderful week with your family meals. We are trying something new this week by moving family devotions right after dinner is done and the kids are all still at the table. We will see how this works for us. Needing to find a better time with the little ones. Looking forward to eating together from the food God has given our earthly body and the spiritual food He has given us from His Word.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am so glad you did.

Hi, Martie- SO glad you're feeling better! Meal plan looks great- what time should I arrive for dinner? (Ha ha). I have the Fix it & Forget it cookbook, too. As soon as I unpack it, I should look through it again. Thanks for the reminder!

I love Fix It and Forget It too! Now if only I could remember to plan ahead enough to use it. I used to be much better at this...
