Menu Monday

"For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good."
Psalm 107:9

Well, it's another week to see God's goodness at work in our lives. One of my favorite sayings (usually repeated in the African churches I've been in) is "God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good." That is so, so true! Whatever may be going on in our homes this week, even amid the difficulties, may we continue to believe in His absolute goodness and may we see whatever is truly good as evidence that He is present in our circumstances. The food we prepare this week and the nourishment our bodies receive is but a representation of the true nourishment He offers for our thirsty and hungry souls. He IS good. ALL the time.

Here is our menu plan this week:

B: French toast, bacon , fruit
L: Make-your-own pizzas
D: Slow-Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu

B: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
L: Baked chicken nuggets, macaroni
D: Crock-Pot French Dip Sandwiches

B: whole wheat bagels with brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese (I just mix this myself using low fat cream cheese-- the kids love it!), fruit
L: chicken taquitos
D: Baked fish

B: eggs (scrambled or poached), toast, fruit
L: Yo-yo ("You're on your own")
D: Taco Soup

B: cereal and fruit
L: Yo-yo
D: Leftovers

Have a great week, and thanks so much for stopping by!
