Help Feed Hungry Children

We are collecting donations for Angel Food Ministries this week.  Find information about how you can help by clicking here.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 30th.  February 2 is Groundhog Day here in the US and it is also recognized as Candlemas, the Presentation of Christ in the Temple Day in Orthodox faiths.

The “rules” of our household diet can be found in the tab above labeled Hallee’s Galley and further explained in Our Diet.

I usually serve leftovers for lunch the next day, or we’ll save them during the week to graze lunch on the weekends. One meal a week, we eat whatever we want. This is usually our “Dinner Out” meal.

Almost all of the breads are homemade using fresh milled flour. I’ll continue to link to my recipes as I post them. Our daily bread is Whole Wheat Honey Oatmeal Bread.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 30th. As far as desserts go, I am making some groundhog cupcakes and some Candlemas cookies.  I look forward to publishing those posts for you on Tuesday.
