Menu Plan Monday and Feed The Bay


It was a long week full of wait and see, ending with some great news, but more wait and see. I am so grateful that God is good.

Sunday was Feed The Bay. This annual event, started by our church 7 years ago has raised a million pounds of food to support our local food banks and soup kitchens. We have gained 40 other churches to help out over 25 different organizations fill their shelves for up to 6 months at a time. It is a wonderful way to help out the organizations that help the needy in our area. I am excited to see what we were able to do this year. Our slogan has been Together We Can Do More, and that really is the truth. It’s great that people donate a few cans during the holidays, or maybe a gift card to help during a tragedy, but by banding together with a list of what is needed most, we are able to do the most amount of good at one time.

As for food in my own home, here’s what we’ve got cookin.

Monday: Cube Steak and rice – this is my second time making this recipe – the whole fam loved it!!

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Kraft Fresh Take Italian (or cheddar bacon, not sure yet) chicken and (baked) fries

Thursday: my oldest is cooking his favorite “recipe” of hot dogs mixed with corn and Mac n cheese. We’ll also make beans so we can have it that way too. It’s actually better than you would think!

Friday: Pork chops & rice

Saturday: Shephards pie

Sunday: Pesto Chicken Alfredo
