Coming Back Slowing and Menu Plan Monday

It has been a long time since I have blogged. Life has just been super busy and it was too stressful for me to try to maintain this blog, so I took a break. At this point, I don’t know how often I will blog, but I will try to do Menu Plan Mondays, and more, if/when I can.

I would like to share that our family received a referral for a little boy in the Philippines. I cannot post information about him online, but we hope to travel to pick him up late winter or early spring 2010.

My menu plan for this week:

Tuesday: New Potatoes with Peas and Ham (More with Less, page 140)
Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs, and salad or steamed vegetables
Thursday: Vegetable Chowder (More with Less, page 200) and whole wheat biscuits
Friday: Chicken Pineapple Skillet (More with Less, page 182) with rice
Saturday: leftovers
Sunday: dessert (for family Christmas dinner) and sandwiches for supper
Monday: Cheese and Corn Chowder (More with Less, page 202) with salad or steamed vegetables and whole wheat biscuits
