Menu Plan Monday (and a Good Read Aloud)

See other menu plans at Organizing Junkie.

Our Menu Plan:

Monday: Leftover Buffet (lots of ham, scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, blueberry muffins, watergate salad, french bread, pasta salad, and chocolate cheesecake...yum!!)

Tuesday: Green salad with chicken and french bread

Wednesday: Church supper and Awana

Thursday: Bean soup with HAM and cornbread...the soup will be waiting for us when we get home from visiting the Living Museum with my sister-in-law and nephews. We changed this one up for breakfast burritos, English muffins with honey, and grapes. I never got the soup put on in the morning. Oops.

Friday: Make your own pizza can guess the main toppings...leftover HAM and cheese...LOL! The ladies will be having "tea" with lemon scones, cream cheese pound cake (I've never tried this recipe before, but it looks deeeelicious!), and brownies, so we may not be that hungry. My mom and SIL are coming over with my nephews to watch dvds from Simply Chalotte Mason (I love their free e-books) and play. My brother will meet us here after work and perhaps we can all watch a movie or play some games together. Nice!

Saturday: Mexican Fiesta!! Taco Salad and Tortilla Pie with refried beans and Spanish rice. Just the rib-stickin', finger lickin' kind of food my troops go for after a hard day's work---today's project is building another stall in preparation for Rosie getting weaned soon.

Sunday: Spaghetti and salad served with Italian Bread. Simple and delicious.

Our Read Aloud of the Week: 

We will be reading Andi's Lonely Little Foal this week in preparation for weaning Merry's baby, Rosie very soon. We noticed that Lily's baby looks an awful lot like Taffy, the foal in the book. We still don't know what we are going to name her. Maybe Taffy could be a possibility...or Honey (Bubba's idea)...or Dixie (Ladybug's idea)...or Daffodil Buttercup Dandelion (Cowboy's idea). 
What do you think??

Rosie (Dusty's Briar Rose), who is as big as her mama at six months old.

Lily's baby, who needs a name. She's a sweetie pie!!
Read her surprising story: Surprise, Baby!

There are coloring pages and activities to go with the story offered for free on the author's website. 

Have a blessed week.
