Menu Monday

You know how I was feeling Friday when I posted?  I thought I was suffering from allergies.  Turns out, #2 son and I spent the whole weekend ill with colds.  We skipped church yesterday.  We're both better today.  The congestion is easing in the nose and we are breathing better.  I slept better last night and feel much better this morning.

My menu suffered because I didn't feel well.  I cooked a bit after coming home from the store Friday.  My little son asks for me to make Hot and Sour soup when he has a cold, he thinks it makes him feel better.  I made a big pot of that soup and a Taco Salad.  What a combination!  That was all from the cooking department here.  I may cook tonight.  It is cloudy dark and rainy today.  We're expected to get heavy rain and winds.  Tonight may be a good soup and grilled cheese night.


Monday~  Soup, Salad, Grilled Cheese
Tuesday~  Salmon Patties, Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Broccoli
Wednesday~  French Toast Breakfast
Thursday~  It's My Birthday...not sure what is going on for that.
Friday~ Baked Potatoes, Green Salad, Grilled Chicken
Saturday~Ravioli Alfredo, Green Salad, Rosemary Bread
Resurrection Sunday ((Easter))-  Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans, Frog Eye Salad,  Coconut Cake

Yep...It's my 40th birthday this week.  Not feeling extra different or weird about it.  What really gets me is it's amazing to have a grown son and still feel like I am 19!

(that's me )

My manly man is almost done with that car for our deaf friend Brenda.  It is all painted and really pretty...if a car is pretty.  I think he is just finishing up getting all the trim put back on it.  Then he'll put the key in and make sure it's running fine.  It may go home today or tomorrow.  Yippee!

#1 son has decided to change his major at school.  He is struggling with Spanish and doesn't know if he can successfully pass summer and fall Spanish classes (required for his degree).  He'll be switching from Associate of Arts/Liberal Arts to Associates of Science/Liberal Studies (exploring science and arts)(no more Spanish classes in that degree!)  Next term he'll be taking a computer course and 4 electives and will  be done with that degree!  I am pretty excited for him.  It sounds like his last term will be pretty fun.

Some big changes are in store for him.  He thinks he has decided to enlist in the United States Coast Guard.  The Coast Guard is a smaller service and has already met it's enlistment quotas for this year.  He is working on scheduling an ASVAB and getting his physical done.  Please pray for him.  He needs wisdom and peace.

This Friday he is going to a dentist to have all 4 of his wisdom teeth pulled.  I feel for him in the misery department.  I'd rather have a baby than have teeth pulled.  Thankfully my wisdom teeth have been pulled already.  I'll be sure to be a good nurse to him.  Can't wait to take pictures to post of that!

My bachelor friends seem to be doing okay.  The older one calls me almost everyday.  Today he was especially alert and seemed almost NICE.  (he tends to be kinda crabby)  We need to have both of the bachelors back over again for a meal.  They love coming here to do that.  Continue to pray for their health and wisdom for folks in charge of their care.  I am praying I help make a difference to them.

That's it for today from my house.  Have a great week!


  1. Youre one busy gal! No wonder you feel 19. I'm jealous!!Your new comforter matches great!You all heal up!! Ya dont need to be sick on your birthday!

  2. Your comforter looks fabulous.  Sorry you are not feeling well but that cold/sinus stuff is really making the rounds.   Will pray for wisdom for your #1 son.  My daughter will be 40 in August.  Now I feel ancient having said that!  You and your husband are remarkable doing for others the way you do.  I will pray for your bachlor firends but you can not even think that what you do for the bachlors is not making a difference in their lives.

  3. I absolutely LOVE that bedspread! TOO BEAUTIFUL! It all looks so nice together! You've quite a flair for decorating! Praying for y'all to start feelin' better soon and prayin' for your son and his trip to the dentist. I'd rather do almost anything than go to the dentist! Ugh!Hope you have an AWESOME birthday! (((warm hugs)))

  4. I love your new's so springy.  We'll be praying for #1 son...the Coast Guard!  Semper Paratus!!!  We do need more Godly men in our military!!Oh I feel for him and his dentist appt., I'm not a big fan of the dentist.  I have to have a crown done in April.  Insurance only pays half, so hubby has said that nothing else better happen to my teeth .  It's so funny, having a baby is free but getting teeth worked on is not.  Ok, so I'm a little long winded today.  Have a good one!  Start feeling better soon.

  5. Wow!  Much going on in your life right now...praying for wisdom & peace with those life decisions.  Have a wonderful birthday...welcome to the 40's!!!
