I've done my grocery shopping for the week already and finally got a chance to take stock of the freezer last Thursday. So that means I have a menu plan for the week! Last week I sort of winged it, and Sunday became a takeout pizza night because I was not feeling well at all and my DH had a back ache that kept him down for the count most of the afternoon. I've really got to get to work on freezing some meals for occasions such as this, as well as getting an extra batch of cookies in the freezer, too. I wasn't able to bake Saturday due to being out hunting and then yesterday there was just no way I could be up on my feet for any length of time. (I know, I sound rather whiny, don't I? Sorry!) The kiddos were not happy for having to settle for a breakfast cookieless breakfast!
~Menu for Monday Nov. 14 to Sunday Nov. 20~
~Monday: grilled baby back ribs, baked potatoes, salad, applesauce, corn and banana
~Tuesday: homemade shake n' bake chicken cutlets, stuffin' muffins, carrots, fruit
~Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner bacon, scrambled eggs, waffles and fruit

~Friday: Baked ziti, corn, fruit
~Saturday: venison stew with carrots and potatoes

|A prayer for one side and Scripture verses for the other. I added some stickers to make them look prettier!|
Well, I finally got my Scripture verses typed, printed and framed for our Family Faith wall, and have some seasonal decorations added as well.
And here is a peek at our Thanksgiving lap book: (It's still a work in progress!)
|I covered a standard size manila file folder with wrapping paper.|
|I added a flap of dark red card stock.|
|The front. I "laminated" the title with clear packing tape, glued it to one side of the cover|
and added a hook and loop closure on the other side.
|A Blessings Tree (I have to add the hook and loop pieces so that the blessing leaves can be stuck on)|
and a print out of Bible verses.
|A pocket for the mini books and Bible memory verse cards.|
*I keep forgetting to mention a wonderful resource for families, and one that I used for the lap book. Scripture Adventures make wonderful holiday resources filled with recipes, crafts and Scripture. We have both the Easter and the Thanksgiving ones. I think I'll be ordering the Christmas one as well. The best part is that you print it out from your computer, so you don't have to wait for it to be delivered. Just make sure you have plenty of paper and ink!
Well, that's all for now! Have a wonderful day.
*This is not a paid endorsement, just my opinion, plain and simple!
