Menu Plan October 9-15

Before I get to the menu, I just want to give my husband a shout-out for the wonderful fall arrangement he made to put in the sanctuary at our church. Each week someone signs up to provide a floral arrangement for the church, and today was our day. Charles mod-podged paper leaves onto clear ornaments, then spent a good deal of time attaching more leaves to a branch from our yard with floral wire. It was my idea to place the urn on fabric with more leaves scattered around it, but other than that, this was 100% my husband's doing. At the end of the week we'll bring it home and place it in our entry way for the rest of the season.

Isn't it lovely? It's not your typical flower arrangment, which is exactly why he did it. He received many compliments on it and one lady even said she was going to steal it! Stealing in church? Can you imagine? LOL. If you want to see it better, click on the picture to enlarge. This was taken with a cell phone since I didn't have the forethought to bring a camera.

Now on to this week's menu:


Homemade pizza

Pan-seared tilapia, lemon pepper broccoli

Crockpot Potato Soup, homemade bread

Out to eat before kids' club

Fiesta chicken and rice, black beans

Ground turkey sloppy joes, crispy potato wedges

Black bean chili over rice, sweet buttermilk cornbread
