Menu Plan Monday - November 1, 2009

I love a weekend filled with fellowship! And this past one was a great one! From Bible Study on Friday, Reformation Day on Saturday, to worship and an afternoon with friends on Sunday - there's no other way I'd rather spend my time. Thank you, Lord, for family, friends, and food!

In contrast to our past couple "slow" weeks, this one will keep us hopping. The cooler temps are great for those budget-stretchers of soups and "brinner" (breakfast-for-dinner). This week we will be enjoying:

Monday (Bryan night meeting?) - 4 Bean Taco Chili, Bread Bowls

Tuesday (Lainie Mom's Group) - Chili Dip (Using 4 Bean Taco Chili), Chips, Corn Casserole

Wednesday (AWANA) - Chicken Patty Sandwiches, Popcorn

Thursday (Minister for Dinner) - Chili Manicotti (Using 4 Bean Taco Chili), Salad

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Date Night Whoo Hoo!

Sunday - Deanna's Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes

  1. Chili Manicotti oh my that sounds fantastic!
    Thank you for all the good ideas.

  2. Just stopped by to see what visit another large family (we have seven children) would be having for dinner...thanks for sharing.

    It was neat to read your blog and see you, too, celebrated Reformation Day. We celebrated with friends at our home this year, remembering Luther and how the Lord used him in the Protestant Reformation to further His word.

    Blessings ~

  3. Church community is so very important. I'm so blessed to have one.
    I'm always looking for different meal ideas. That's why I love MPM.
    You have a great week!
