Starting the week with a menu (and fresh bread!)

The scent of freshly baked bread is what I awoke to on this Monday morning. Programmable bread machines are wonderful. Enjoying some Raisin Bran Bread got this Monday off to a better start than usual. Playing some of Laura Story's praise music was also a promising beginning to the day.

Seeking the counsel of my husband is not something I have done for a while with our menu, but we tried to return to that practice this week. Things usually go better with the input of his wisdom, especially since I tend to be random and forgetful!

  • Venison steaks
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Okra
  • Chicken fajitas
  • Fried rice
  • Shrimp or fish
  • Turkey burgers
  • Sauteed zucchini
  • Venison steaks or roast
  • Corn on the cob
  • Okra
Indeed we did diverge from last week's menu--Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! The best evening of eating "off the plan" was Saturday, when we were invited join some new friends of ours for dinner, which was lovely. Hence, we are having venison twice this week, which my husband and children won't mind in the least. Using more of what we have will help us save money on our grocery costs, which we simply must achieve.
