Happy Labor Day!
Happy Birthday to me!
We're at my grandmother's house today, where I have spent most of the birthdays in my life. Growing up in my bird hunting family (I typed it small, in case it offends anyone!) if your birthday was anywhere near September 1st (opening day), you pretty much found yourself somewhere in west Texas. Well, since that's where my sweet grandparents lived, I couldn't imagine a better place to spend my birthdays as a child. I've turned some pretty important ages here, including double digits, teenager, and now..... the big 4-0! My sweet grandmother used to always decorate a beautiful cake for me. When I got bigger I thought it was fun to decorate it myself, so she would always have the cake and all of the icings ready for me. What a treat! Now, my kids do it for me. I guess I've come full circle!
I hope you're enjoying a wonderful Labor Day holiday, wherever you are. :)
Here's our menu the rest of the week (once we get back). With school starting for us, I have included our breakfast choices and lunch menus as well. I'm not sure if I'll do that every week, but I thought I'd give it a go this time. I'm listing breakfast as "choices" because I just make certain things available for them each week and they like to get up and see what they "feel like." We've done lunches this way in the past, but for awhile I'm going to try having a certain thing each day and see if that helps streamline our lunch break during the school year.
Breakfast choices this week:
Cinnamon streusel muffins
Bagels with either blueberry or strawberry cream cheese
(or some combination of the above)
Lunch:Make-your-own pizza (English muffins + pizza sauce +mozzarella + pepperoni = fun and yummy)
Dinner: Taco Soup, Mexican salad, and Slow-Cooked Praline Apple Crisp for dessert
Lunch:Chicken Stir Fry
Dinner: Crock Pot Ham, baked beans, salad, yeast rolls
Lunch: Tomato Basil Soup (La Madeline- yum!), grilled cheese sandwiches
Dinner: fried chicken (my family LOVES this and I don't make it very often!), mashed potatoes, gravy, peas
Weekend: LOTS of good leftovers, out to eat after church (and Taco Bell after our first night of Awana!)
Be sure and stop by Laura's for more menus or to add your own.
Have a blessed week!
