Menu Monday 13 AUG 2012 – First Full Week of School!

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!

Menu Monday – 02 JUL 12 – Independence Day!

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.

Menu Monday 18 JUN 12 — Daniel Fast Week 2

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 18th.

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 last 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.

We are doing 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. Last week, Gregg did a juice fast during the day and ate vegan soups in the evening. This week he’s in line with me on a regular Daniel Fast.

On Saturday, we are having the boys’ birthday party. My parents and my sister and her family will be in town. I haven’t really felt tempted by food this fast, but we’ll see how I do with full meal preparations, homemade ice cream, and birthday cake!

Menu Monday 11 JUN 2012 – Daniel Fast Week 1

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.

Menu Monday 16 APR 12

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 12th. This is a quiet week in our household, which is a good thing. We’re gearing up to publish Book 2 of the Jewel Trilogy on the 23rd (NOTE: This is the last week to get Book 1, Sapphire Ice, for just 0$.99!), and I really need an uninterrupted schedule this week. As far as desserts go, I think Gregg and the boys are going to make some Gingerbread Cookies. Kaylee asked if I’d help her make a chocolate mousse pie — that will be a lot of fun!

Menu Monday APR 02 12 — Passover/Easter Week!

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 2nd. This is Spring Break at our house, as well as Passover week and Easter week, so it’s a big “food” week. My husband, Gregg, is home for the first part of the week, and all of my kids are home, so we’re looking forward to an exciting, family-filled week! As far as desserts go, I am going to fill the cookie jar with Doodleroo’s Snickerdoodles We’re having a big pasta making party Tuesday, so I may make a Mascarpone Cheesecake with Vanilla Almond Crust to go with the pasta. We will also be making Resurrection Cookies on Saturday night.

Menu Monday 26 MAR 12 — Book Release Day!

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of March 26th. As far as desserts go, I think we’re going to make some peanut butter cookies this afternoon, and maybe a chocolate cream pie in the middle of the week.
Today is also the day I release my novel — Book 1 of the Jewel Trilogy, Sapphire Ice! You can read more about it here.

Menu Monday 12 MAR 12 — Kaylee’s Birthday Week!

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of March 12th. Tuesday is my daughter’s 15th birthday. She’s requested Floating Hearts in Raspberry Sauce for her birthday dessert. I will probably also make some Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies.

My local Kroger recently had free range organic whole turkeys for $0.49 per pound (as opposed to $2.99 per pound.) We bought several of them, and I will be breaking a turkey down this week to see how many meals I can get out of it.

Menu Monday 05 MAR 12

Today I begin a 40-day juice fast. But, it’s not really a “pure” juice fast. I’ll be drinking smoothies, and I’m contemplating eating some homemade vegetable soup. I haven’t fully decided. But, I’m not going to spend a lot of time talking about it here. It’s not really something like a Daniel Fast that requires teaching and recipe aids. I’ll be using a juicer and juicing anything I can– carrots, apples, spinach, kale, citrus, ginger.

My family is not fasting with me, so I’ll be posting our regular meals for you.

Don’t forget to check out my new author blog, Hallee Bridgeman. I’ll be announcing the release of my new Christian romance, Sapphire Ice in the next few weeks!
