Monday Menu Plan - Week #4

This week is the last week I'll being posting my menu plans since I'll be cycling back through them starting next week. I'll still be posting about new recipes I've tried and such but I'm quite content to keep this menu plan cycle for a few months. I may replace a few of the new recipes I tried and didn't like. I find I have to try something new at least once a week or I get mucho bored!!

I thought I'd also add the link to the menu planner I use since its been very helpful: Menu Planner at The Homeschool Mom. I print the weekly planner you'll see at that link too and plan my major housecleaning for the week, as well. All of this is in a binder along with the recipes for everything. Then each week I post (on the fridge) the menu on a menu notepad that my wonderful neighbor, Heather, gave me! This system is working well for me and now that I am a month into this planning meals for a month thing, I can honestly say it's worth it! It has made my life so much easier!

Finally, I just wanted to share with you a few new recipes I tried this past week which were SO good! First of all, Creamy Corn Chowder! It happened to be planned for an evening when it was storming outside and for that reason was extra satisfying!

Secondly, remember the potluck I had to go to and the hankering I had for Hash Brown Casserole? Well, I found a recipe and was it ever good! Let's just say I didn't have to bring any home!

So happy planning and cooking!  And drop me a line to let me know if any of this has been helpful or inspired you to try something new!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
