Meal Plan: October 24-28

I am pretty excited about this week’s meals that we are going to have! With Fall in full swing that means two things; crock-pot and soup. I have a very healthy relationship with my crock-pot and I love the comfort that soup gives you at the end of the day!

Monday: Taco Soup. This needs no introduction or explanation. It is what it is. Delicious.

Tuesday: Making a homemade pizza for the family. I’ll be attending the Women’s Fall dinner at our church. Simple and not so time consuming so I can dart out the door!

Wednesday: I usually don’t make a meal on Wednesday, but I am this week. Mexican Chicken. Can’t get enough of Paula!

Thursday: Simple, light and tasty; BLT.

Friday: Beginning the week with soup and ending it with this soup; Broccoli and Cheese.

While you are here, there is still time for you to comment over here and win a coupon for a free pizza AND a pretty in pink set of earphones!

Smack-Dab {Review & Giveaway}

In this book written by a new author, Brennan Manning, he asks the question, What is the one thing you think Abba will ask you someday when you are in heaven?”

Among the colorfully illustrated pages, within the diverse children of the book, the children answer that question out of joy, fear and hope. They learn that God is always there and He cares about every part of their lives.

What your child can learn from this book, is that God’s love is immeasurable and everlasting. And that you are always right Smack-Dab in the Middle of God’s Love! 

To win this book, leave a comment by answering; How can you encourage your children to show God’s love in their world? 

Contest will end Monday October 17 10:00 a.m. CST.

These opinions for this review for Tommy Nelson are strictly my own.

Meal Plan: October 3-7

Nothing fancy this week for our dinner plans, just tasty!

Monday: Tacos – a family favorite for all to enjoy!

Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken – this recipe calls to make it all in the crock-pot, which I have never done it this way and I’m all about a meal thrown together in a big pot!

Wednesday: church night!

Thursday: Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake – this should be a hit for the kids. (crossing my fingers)

Friday: French Toast – I will always have a deep love for breakfast for dinner! I like the bread option for this recipe. And really, this could be a dessert! Maybe a side of eggs and bacon for a balanced meal, eh!?

I hope you can enjoy these yummy recipes just like we will!
