Menu Plan Monday - Week of May 5, 2013

A cake that Missy baked for her teacher's birthday!  She did a great job! (And it was all her idea too.)

In our family, the week of the twins birthday is always hectic - maybe because we have two children and one birthday, maybe because we usually have company and maybe because the birthday is in May, when everything is wrapping up for the school year.  Who knows?  This year is no exception.

We started out the week with Missy having an allergic reaction to something she ate - so Buddy, Missy and I stayed home from church on Sunday morning to take care of her and John went to preach by himself at a brand new to us church.  I felt so much like we were abandoning him, but we needed to take care of Missy and didn't want to have to leave in the middle of the service is something went south.  So we prayed and cared and it sounds like things went well (they asked him to come back!).

We have company Monday through Wednesday this week and we need to bring treats to the children's school program and scouts this week plus something for the pot luck at church on Wednesday.  So, we have lots  going on in the kitchen too!

I didn't buy any  meat at the store this week so all our meat this week is coming from the freezer.  We're still working on cleaning that out for our bulk meat purchase - which we're slowly getting closer to purchasing! I'm excited about cleaning out the freezer and the meat purchase. Maybe I'm just weird that way.... :)
