Menu Plan Monday

Welcome!!! I hope you had a blessed Easter and were able to take time to reflect on the true meaning of the day.

I can't really say that I enjoyed last week. Being a school employee, I had the week off for Spring Break. I had high hopes of making delicious meals for my family and doing a lot of maintenance work around the house. Unfortunately, I was pretty much flat on my back sick the whole week. Yesterday was the first day that I started to feel better, so hopefully I am on the mend. This week should be better. I'm hoping that by implementing my new routines which I posted the other day, things will go more smoothly and I'll get dinners on the table on a regular basis.

At least that's the plan.

Here's the menu for this week:

Sunday - Turkey Noodle Soup and biscuits

Wednesday - Spaghetti and meatballs, salad and caesar salad

Thursday - Mezze (Kubbe, Hummous, cheeses, pickles, bread, etc.)

Friday - Taco Salad

Saturday - Roast Sticky Chicken, roasted potatoes, broccoli and salad

That's the plan for the week. Hopefully it will all work out and we will be eating a homecooked meal every night.

Can I just prevail on you for just a minute longer? If you wouldn't mind, I would really appreciate your prayers for me today. Tomorrow I'll be having a meeting with the other ladies in my office as well as both the principal and vice-principal. The objective of the meeting is to sort out some work-related issues that have been going on, but I think that it's gotten personal for some of us and it is promising to be a very uncomfortable meeting. It's already gotten uncomfortable just since they called the meeting! If you would just pray that God would give me wise words and an open heart I'd appreciate it. I don't want to hurt anyone, but I do want to get things settled so we can all move on. Thank you.

And now, I'm off. But be sure to visit The Organizing Junkie to get more great menu ideas!!

UGH!! Lori, seriously? I am so sad that you are involved in a meeting like this and disharmony at work.. especially so soon, for goodness sake!

I will say a prayer right now but time-wise, I am afraid it might be too late!


Lori - The Simple Life at Home said...

No, no, Leeann!! You aren't too late. The meeting isn't until tomorrow afternoon. All prayers are appreciated!

I'll add you to my prayer list.
Is it Romans 12:9...the verse that I'm thinking about that gives me inspiration with my work situation.
You have some terrific meals planned for this week.
Happy MPM!
