Menu Plan Monday - October 26, 2009

It truly feels like fall. As I sit here, I smell campfire on my clothes. Teddy (12) decided to build a fire pit last week, and tonight we enjoyed it complete with roasting marshmallows. So lovely to have an activity that everyone in the family delights in. Thanks, Ted! We look forward to many more campfires!

This weekend was spent with dear friends at the homeschool Mom's Retreat. Wonderful speakers and music. More insights on that to come...

I've been working on getting our 2009 dinner menus (Jan-October) up to our website. I should have it done before bedtime tonight (Sunday), so check it out on our downloads page at PeacefulHome.net.

This is one of those rare weeks when there are no meetings/activities to muddle up our dinners. I look forward the following family dinners:

Monday - Soft Tacos, Homemade Corn Tortillas , Skillet Corn

Tuesday - Spaghetti & Meatballs, Garlic Bread

Wednesday - Pumpkin Pancakes, Glazed Apples & Sausage

Thursday - Bean Burritos, Homemade Flour Tortillas

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Cranberry Baked Beans, Steamed Brown Bread


  1. we will join you on Monday at say 6:00?

    Monday - Soft Tacos, Homemade Corn Tortillas , Skillet Corn

    Right... ok I wish. I love your homemade tortillas. We need to save our pennies for a tortilla press. Well somehow not so high on the priority list but one can dream! Enjoy your meeting free week. Your food looks awesome.

  2. Your meal plan look yummy!! Can't wait to go check out your 2009 menu plans.

  3. Rachel wants to visit on Wednesday and Emma would like to join you for Thursday! That makes my menu easier. :) Looks good friend.

  4. It sounds like autumn has arrived in your neck of the woods.
    Looks like you have a yummy week planned.
    Have a great Halloween or Harvest Festival!

  5. I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesdays at Dining With Debbie. Come post a favorite slow cooker recipe and grab a new idea as well. Thanks for posting those delicious menus!
