Our Daily Bread: 10 ~ 16 October

| October 10, 2011

Another week gone by.  By the looks of it, this is turning into a boring menu blog.  It’s not.  I promise!  I have so many things I’d like to share with you and update you on ~ I just need to make the time to do it. Last week’s menu planning worked really well for [...]

Our Daily Bread: 03 ~ 09 October

| October 3, 2011

Seriously?  October?  We are amidst the last quarter of 2011, and I’m just now getting used to writing ’2011′ on the checks.  Is anyone else stuck in the past a couple of decades, like I am?  I mean, when someone mentions something happening in, say…1992, in your mind does it feel like perhaps that’s only [...]

Our Daily Bread: 08 ~ 14 August

| August 8, 2011

I bet you thought I’d fallen off the turnip truck, didn’t you?  I can hear Husbie laughing now, as I’m sure I’ve used that phrase in the wrong context ~ but, in many ways, I do feel like I’ve fallen off the turnip truck!  I am contemplating contacting the Mayans regarding their 2012 calendar.  They [...]

Our Daily Bread: 20 ~ 26 June

| June 20, 2011

Somehow, the weeks keep managing to slip by me.  I mean, I know I went through them, because I am here.  But, wow.  It doesn’t help that summer has arrived and I no longer feel like anything but a Chicken Caesar Salad sounds good.  Well, maybe a traditional taco salad.  Or, perhaps a good antipasto [...]

Our Daily Bread: 30 May ~ 05 June

| May 30, 2011

Alright, who stole last week from us?!  There is no way it can be Monday all over again, can it??  Oy!  I’d like to say it’s a beautiful Memorial Day ~ it is for the right reasons ~ but, it’s certainly not a nice day for a BBQ…or any outdoor activities, for that matter.  We’ve [...]

Our Daily Bread: 23 ~ 29 May

| May 23, 2011

Can you believe this is the last full week of May already?!  My socks, where has the time flown?  We’ve got a busy schedule this week, so I’m all about quick and easy. Monday ~ Green Chile Chicken and Rice Goop Tuesday ~ Sloppy Joes; Homemade Potato Salad; Corn on the Cob; Pickled Okra Wednesday [...]

Our Daily Bread: 16 ~ 22 May

| May 16, 2011

This will be a week of sorting through and consolidating stuff in the freezers.  I’ve got stuff scattered throughout the four freezers, and I’ve lost track of what we’ve got and how much.  I know there’s still some veggies from the garden last summer that need to be used up.  I’ll have to see how [...]

Our Daily Bread: 09 ~ 15 May

| May 9, 2011

Here we are once again, and all I want to put on the menu is popsicles, ice cream, shaved ice and frozen yogurt.  I never thought I’d say this while living in Nebraska ~ especially after being a desert rat for nearly 30 years ~ but, it’s hot!  Now, before you laugh at me, it [...]

Our Daily Bread: 02 ~ 08 May

| May 2, 2011

I’ve got to say ~ I love it when a plan comes together!  Last week’s menu was a success ~ no flopped meals, and I was able to stick to the plan.  The only exception was Thursday.  I had a meeting that evening and Darling Husbie had to work late.  I made him a huge [...]

Our Daily Bread: 25 April ~ 05 May

| April 25, 2011

Boring and mundane?  Or, trusty tried and true?  That is the question.  Either way, the answer is meals that I know we like.  I’ve been feeling like my menus were stuck in a rut, so I was venturing out a little bit and trying some new recipes to mix things up a little around here. [...]
