It's sunny and warm (in winters terms) today here in Indy. Gives me hope spring is coming! As I was planning my menu for this week, I was thinking happily of summer meals. There are certain meals that just stick out to me in relation to summer. I don't fix them often in the winter (not sure why) but I'm ready to be adding them to my meal planning board. Bring on Spring and Summer!
This week's meal plan is relatively simple. Some of it is carry over from last week. A few things got bumped last week due to general lack of energy. We had sandwiches more than once last week.
Ok, so here it is..
Monday- Baked Potatoes. This got bumped last week, but still sounds really good so we're doing it tonight. I'm going to steam some broccoli and we'll have that with cheese and cream cheese and maybe bacon bits too.
Tuesday- Pizza. I'm fixing a homemade BBQ Chicken pizza.
Wednesday- Chili. I have some chili my mother in law made on Christmas in the freezer. It sounded good, so now it's thawing in the fridge and we'll have that with a few toppings.
Thursday- BLT's. Well, BL's. We're a non tomato eating house. I usually use turkey bacon for this. Yum! This is one of those summer meals that I love.
Friday- Chicken N Noodles. I figured I'd mix the summer goodness and the winter comfort food this week. This is so easy and it's made in the crock pot. Can't go wrong!
Saturday- Aaron and I are having a date night but the girls will be eating spaghetti. They love spaghetti. They had it with a babysitter 2 weeks ago and I got a text that said "So there was a minor spaghetti explosion in your kitchen". Aaron and I laughed because that's an excellent description of how my girls eat spaghetti.
Sunday- We'll probably grab something to eat after church real quick. Sunday's are by far our busiest days, so I don't normally cook a whole lot.
All in all a pretty simple menu this week!
Last week in chapter 4, we talked about what the problem was with having false gods in our life. We studied the passage of scripture in Colossians and it was a great reminder to me about living a life that's holy and pleasing to God. So, with that being said, I decided that Colossians 3:17 would be the verse of the week this week.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.- Colossians 3:17
