Happy Monday! And happy fall! I don't know about where you live, but here the temps are getting a bit cooler and there is a hint of "crisp" in the air in the mornings. I just love it!
Here is a picture of Luke and Minte on one of the rides this weekend at our church's Fall Festival. We had a great time! It wasn't Minte's first time to see rides like that, since we went to our state fair a few weeks ago, but we discovered that we have a roller-coaster/ ride-lover on our hands! In between chatting with friends and snapping pictures, we enjoyed BBQ, corny dogs and funnel cakes. Yummo!
This is one of those weeks where we have something almost every night of the week. I really try for our schedule not to be that way, and most weeks it's not... but sometimes it's unavoidable. So, this week it's simple dinners I can quickly throw together so we can at least sit down before we blast off to our destinations. Somehow if we at least pause around the table, even if it's to eat a sandwich, our day doesn't seem so hectic.
So, here's what we've got cookin':
Monday: Kashi pizzas (love those!), caesar salad
Tuesday: chicken spaghetti, green beans, bread
Wednesday: leftovers or YOYO (you're on your own)
Thursday: Crock Pot stew and cornbread
Friday: cook out at our Family Bible Fellowship harvest party
For more menus, or to share yours, stop on by Orgjunkie.com. Thanks, Laura, for hosting us each week! I get so many ideas from reading other menus!
And now that I've share what we're eating around here this week, I'll share what I pondered in the past few days as I did my weekend chores. These are links that friends sent me or that I came across and I found thought-provoking... A little "food for thought" to add to my Monday Menu. Maybe you'll find them interesting, too!
- Raising Pharisees This was on Pulpit Magazine's site about a year ago and it really made me think. I came across the hard copy that I had printed recently, and I read it again because I think it's something we should guard against, as Christian parents.
