Menu Plan Monday

Click image enlarge...
Good Morning!
This week is going to be a full one.
It is the last week of the kids school.

I played around on this site for some ideas this week.
It can always be found on my side bar under other blogs

It is a list of 100 copy cat restaurant recipes.

We harvested onion this last week so it is in good order to make up some
Mongolian Beef out of the harvest and the flank steak I found on sale and froze.

This week I am piggy backing on the menu
It is when the meals prepared while have aspects that will be carried onto the next meal.
It really saves prep time if you say cut the scallions tho do two days at one time.
Or thaw the meats that will be used for more than one recipe, if possible cook them up and have them pre-cooked the next meal.

We are going Asian and Mexican this week.
With a bit of breakfast flair added in.
It is very hot here and the fresh produce from the garden is in time for the dishes.
Cooking in season if from your garden or the store is very economical.

I'll wax Italian another week

"Enjoy your dinner"
a sweet waiter at a Asian restaurant always said that, it became a family standby comment in the early years. Always brought a smile at the remembrance of the fellow.

I am coming to YOUR house every night this week for dinner! How about that!!!!! I am so tired of cooking and all we eat is salad!!!! HA...... I am on this RAW diet and it makes it real easy except for cooking for my Mom and Dad...... They have never eaten anything raw..... they eat junk food and it is such a temptation when I fix mashed potatoes and meat loaf and gravy and cream corn for them!!!!!! I have to go and eat a big orange and drink a BIG glass of water before I start..... because if I ever get my mouth wrapped around those mashed potatoes and gravy it is Katie bar the door!!!!!!!!!!!

Miss you!!!!!!!!!

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
