The past seven months has been leading up to this: Hard work, late nights, temper tantrums by both children and parents. We're turning-in the exhibits for the 30 projects our three oldest children took for 4-H this year.
We dropped off 12 for closed judging on Friday evening. The Bicycle Rodeo was Saturday. Tomorrow starts the painful week of open judging. We'll be at the fairgrounds multiple times each day until Thursday. The fair opens Friday morning (Ted's 12th Birthday!)
It's times like these that it is so tempting to let the meal planning slide. But the reality is, these are the times when it matters most! Thought put into dinner the night before - what to take from the freezer? does this need to be a crockpot meal? - will make the difference between a home-cooked meal delivered on-time vs. a trip through the arches (which now carries around a $35 tab for our family).
That being said, this is what the Stumpfs will be enjoying this week:
Monday - Bean Dish Casserole
Tuesday - Baked French Toast, Sausage
Wednesday - Crock-pot Beef and Noodles
Thursday - Easy Taco Bake
Friday - Small Group Bible Study at the Fair!
Saturday - Franks n' Beans
