October!  How did that happen?? I am excited and blessed that my husband will be home Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  He said he has just too much to do at home to work an overtime shift this Wednesday.  While I do appreciate the long hours he works for us, I must admit that I LOVE having him home.  I had my menu plan all worked up before I thought to ask….he almost always works his Wednesday off, so I don’t usually ask in advance.  I’m glad that the Lord prompted me to do so tonight!  It didn’t take but a minute to make the necessary changes!

My Taste of Home magazine came this week, and we have three recipes to try from this issue.  I do post links to the Taste of Home site when I can, but all three of these recipes are in their protected area so I cannot link them for you this time around.

Take some time this week to do some menu planning for your family.  It makes a wonderful difference in the quality and variety of food you feed your family, and it can certainly help keep the food budget in check, too!  For more ideas, be sure to check out this week’s Menu Plan Monday.
