Menu Plan Monday - January 25, 2010

Is anyone else as shocked as I am that this is the last week in January? I'm not even used to writing 2010 yet!

Our weekend was both very happy and very sad. We celebrated Heidi's 3rd Birthday while dealing with a barn crisis. The pony that we board for our neighbor and Meghan's best friend coliced and had to be put down. Emelie and Bryan were front and center in handling Mac until the vet arrived and during the exam. Emelie was steady beyond her years!

This afternoon was brought to us by football! We're excited to root our Colts onto another Super Bowl win in a couple weeks!

This week, busy and eventful, we will be enjoying:
Monday - Waffles and Sausage

Tuesday (Homeschool Group, 4-H Leader's Meeting, Horse Judging) - 2 Bean Chili, Cornbread, Coleslaw crockpot

Wednesday (AWANA, 4-H) - Smoked Sasauge Sandwiches, Baked Potatoes

Thursday - Colorful Ham Strata, Cottage Fries

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Cheesy Mac & Dogs, Salad

Find more menus at orgjunkie.com. Our menus for the year can be found at our website. Breakfast menu is here; Lunch is here. What's on your menu this week?


  1. I was so sorry to hear about Mac. I am sure Em handled herself well above her years...how is everyone handling the loss? Praying for Mary and the rest of the kids...so sad. :(

  2. I agree with you -- January has gone by so quickly! It will be Christmas again before we know it . . . .

    Hope your Colts win the Super Bowl! I like Peyton Manning. :)
