Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 2th. This week is SO BUSY. Kaylee has three volleyball games, I will be out of the house three evenings this week, and we have an exciting Saturday morning breakfast meet-up with Stacy Makes Cents! So, meals are going to have to be simple or easily left for the family to handle final prep.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 13th. This will be Kaylee’s first full week back to school (she started last Thursday) and the boys both start on Wednesday. We are also full swing into volleyball season, with two away games this week. As far as desserts go, we found some brown rice Rice Krispies, so we’re going to make some Rice Krispies treats using those!
Yesterday, I planned to make hamburgers. But, my afternoon got away from me and I didn’t get the buns made in time. While I thought about what to do, it occurred to me that I don’t want to spend the next 8 weeks eating beef hot dogs and hamburgers. I figured, why not just make a meal and serve it on paper plates?Pin It
It’s apple season here at our household, and our apple tree is bursting with fruit. While planning to take a meal to a family at church who just had a baby, I decided to make an apple pie. But, when I inventoried my aluminum pans, I discovered that I’m out of pie plates. Since I try not to take anything that needs to be returned to me (so that the family doesn’t have to keep up with dishes from so many church members bringing food) I decided instead to use a square cake pan and make an apple crisp. This was so good, very simple, and so easy to make.Pin It

We’ve had several days recently where the temperature has climbed toward 110°. As such, I wanted to find a way to cool the kids off.
It was easy. The only thing was that my containers were too big. I think the larger-sized bathroom cups would work best.
I didn’t have popsicle sticks, so I just used disposable plastic spoons. They worked just fine.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of July 2nd. As far as desserts go, the boys and I are going to do something with blueberries and strawberries for 4th of July — just not positive what yet! Gregg and I just came off of the Daniel Fast, Kaylee is on a mission trip with her youth group, and next week, we will be at Glen Eden all week, so I’m going to keep meals simple for the week.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 11th.
Gregg and I have felt the need to fast for several weeks now, but we were crazy around here with the end of school and getting books released. So, we’re starting the fast this week. The reason for the timing is this: this is seriously the only chunk of summer that isn’t rife with military training for the national guard or summer camps, etc., for our ministries. If we were going to fast this summer, it has to start now, and will unfortunately collide with the combination birthday party we’re throwing for the boys at the end of the month. But, it will be the end of the fast, so we’ll be in a good stride by then.
Yesterday, I started a 21-Day Daniel Fast. My blog post about that can be found here, but basically, it’s vegan extreme – and I’m throwing in my own personal restriction to unleavened bread only. Gregg is actually doing a juice fast during the day and eating vegan soups in the evening, so you’ll see pretty much only soups as our evening meals.
This week is also VBS at church. I’m working in the kitchen, so the temptation to eat foods not on the fast is going to be great — especially with this being the first week of the fast.Pin It
