Menu Planning Monday, Some Fun Sites and More!
Welcome to Menu Planning Monday, as well as other things, and, no, I'm not serving pussycats. However, I thought you might like to start out the week with a cozy picture of sleeping toms. They have claimed their usual place, the foot of my bed, and are down for the count! Awww, they make my heart go "thump-thump!"
I have a number of things to show you and talk to you about today. But first, for those of you who are visiting here from Laura's I'm An Organizing Junkie blog for Menu Planning Monday, following is my menu for the week, with accompanying links...
Monday - Firecracker Chicken, slaw and french bread (I was suppose to have this last week, but things changed.
Tuesday - Beef Stew, Green Beans and Rolls
Wednesday- Pinto Beans, Whole Wheat Cornbread, and Salad
Thursday - Granny's Chicken Soup, Whole Wheat Bread and
Friday -Veggie Stir-Fry and Rice, with Fruit Salad
Saturday - Leftovers!!!!
So, if you are on the run, you can stop here, or read on, if you like...
Oooh, I just found the most wonderful links. They were first advertised on my friend Dawn's blog, The Feathered Nest. The links are for a blog called Care to Bead and the Etsy is Vintage Inspired Jewelry. I have to say that Kathi, the owner of this blog and Etsy shop, makes the prettiest earrings that I have ever seen. They are so pretty and whimsical, you must check them out. Here is just a sample of what she creates...Aren't they lovely? The prices are incredibly reasonable and I am sure at some point (such as when my husband is bringing home regular checks again) I will be a customer.
Next, I want to thank all of you who kindly prayed and supported us with your thoughts these last few months because of my husband's unemployment situation. Mark was hired on Friday and begins his new job as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a smallish local company that specializes in personal coaching. Three years ago I would have jumped up and down to get this job, because our commission structure is excellent. But the greater economy has me worried for the future of anyone's job. So, I am thankful and grateful, but very sober about where our money will be going when we get paid - into our savings account!
Thank you again for all who prayed for us.
Well, lovely ladies, I think I will close here (children are after me and I must go and be a mama). Stop-by tomorrow evening, because I should have my Giveaway posted.
God bless until then!
