The Table IS Busier Than I had hoped

Well, friends, I thought that I would have time for this little area of my life, but I don't. If I were keeping this blog up, I would be directly neglecting another important area of ministry to my family. Annagail is mobile now and I am finding less and less time for things like this.

So, I will keep it open for new recipes I find and such. It won't be kept up on a regular basis though.

God bless you!

Tuesday 8/21 Menu

Note: Nathan has a coastal route to run for work today & class tonight, so I won't see him again until after the kids' bedtime. Therefore, the kids and I will have our "big" meal for lunch. It makes the nigh time routine easier for this Mama who could be exhausted by the time dinner rolls around.

Breakfast: (homemade)Toast w/ homemade peach butter & a side of fruit

Lunch: "Cheesy-Peasy" (mac-n-cheese w/french peas added in)and chicken (fingers for the kids & grilled for me)

Afternoon Snack: Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Dinner: Sandwiches (on homemade bread)w/ pretzels & fruit
