Menu Planning Monday

Welcome to Menu Planning Monday here (link)! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Following is my meny plan for this week:

Monday - Lasagna Rolls, garlic bread and salad

Tuesday - Chunky Beef/Veggie Soup, Tossed Salad and Garlic Bread

Wednesday - "Buffalo" chicken legs, Brown Rice and Fruit

Thursday - Ham, pineapple, asparagus, and scalloped potatoes

Friday - Leftovers

Saturday - Sausage Bean Stew, Salad and bread

If you came here for my menu plan, there you have it! You can stop here or read on about Pocket Change Miracles...

Pocket Change Miracles Day!

Today is the first workday of the new month and, as such, I have designated it as "Pocket Change Miracles" Day. This means that I have saved all of my change during the previous month. Today, I count it all up and then donate it to my favorite charity, needy circumstance, etc.

This month I've decided to use my change to purchase high-protein items for our local food bank. I hear that the food books all across our nation are experiencing higher demand but are receiving fewer donations. I'd like to help with that need as best I can.

How about you? Anyone else save their pocket change this month? If so ... leave a comment and let me know what small act of service you will be able to do this month. I think we can all use some motivation and inspiration to help, even if it's only with four weeks worth of our nickels-dimes-quarters.

Remember, to participate your funds don't have to go to an organized charity. Maybe your next door neighbor needs a small bouquet and a Thinking-Of-Your card. It can be anything.

Next month, I'll provide a Mr. Linky, but today, just leave a comment.

Much love to you all on this fine Monday!
