The Weekly Menu

It’s been a crazy busy couple of weeks, but here we are on the other side of things. Looking back over it all, we’re so very thankful for God’s mercy and provision. Copper’s dad had a medical emergency while on a trip to Canada, but God brought him home safely. We had visitors at our very first service at the new church last week, and even more visitors this week. Dani’s Etsy Shop is open for business and doing well.  My husband has worked hard during his vacation and I have a freshly painted front hall and entry way to prove it! Pictures later this week.

I’ve changed things up a bit on this week’s menu. Taco Tuesday is gone, for now. With my husband’s weird work schedule, his making tacos on Tuesdays meant I was cooking dinner for him only one night every two weeks. Harrumph! That will not do! For the next couple of weeks, I’ve also added a mid-week dessert. I love cooking, and I love baking. Why not make a dessert for the family on one of my husband’s days off? Yep, it’s going to happen!

Here’s our menu for the next week, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and the mid-week snacks and desserts, too. There are a few new-to-me recipes this week, and I’ve noted those for you. If any of them turn out to be duds, I’ll let you know.

Lunch – Church Potluck – We’re bringing Garlic Roasted Chicken Thighs, Sliced Peaches, Dani’s Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! We’re having the cinnamon roll pancakes?!?! Be still my heart! AND Grandad’s fried potatoes?!?!? I need to get Betty dusted off and start biking every hour I’m awake.

  • You shared so many yummy recipe links ~ thank you! I love the nacho night. Whenever my teens have friends over one of their favorite things is for me to make a nacho bar for them. Lay out all the fixings and let them go at it, lol! Now I must go peruse your links. ~~

  • Good to see you back! We are taking our “working” vacation this week! wow, it is hot and crazy here. Hope your father in law is doing well! Great to hear that the new church plant is starting off so well! Praise the Lord! Have a great week!
