Week of Sept. 19 Menu Plan
Thanks to everyone who wished me a safe and enjoyable weekend away at the Jr. High Retreat! We had a blast. I'm writing this to you with eyelids half open, my blood sugar at its very highest and a full heart.
We stayed at the beautiful Three Springs Ministries in PA, and there were things involved like tractor pulling, throwing cow tongues, and human foosball. Y'all know I'm from Alabama, but I have never seen the likes of a cow tongue until now. It is nasty, y'all. And my word, is it big! I have a new appreciation for our beefy friends.
On a serious note, It was a pure joy to see a bunch of 7th and 8th graders in unadulterated worship . . . raising their hands, and belting out praise to Jesus. I wish you could have seen them. I have no doubt that it would've made your heart just about melt like it did mine. They are the sweetest little things, and it is such an honor to serve them.
This week, I'm excited to be back in the kitchen cooking up some of our favorite fall dishes! And because we're talking fall and food, can you believe my local grocer doesn't have a spot on the shelf for canned pumpkin yet?!?!? I thought I would get ahead of the game and buy some last night, plus I got a mad hankerin' for pumpkin pancakes, and I couldn't find the stuff anywhere. If they don't start selling it soon, I might need to put out a PSA.
Phew. I'm glad I got that off my chest. I knew y'all would understand. ;) Enough blabbing. Here's what we're chowing down on this week:
Monday - Small Group Bible Study - Dinner with our group
Tuesday - Crock Pot Chicken Spinach Soup (a fall favorite!)
Wednesday - Sweet & Sour Pork w/ Rice
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - TBD
