Menu Plan Monday 9/5-9/11

Last week I really did do menus but I didn’t post them because life got busy on me and I didn’t find the time to post them.  Now that school is starting this week, I am working very diligently to get some resemblance of order and schedule to get back into a routine for the whole family. There is a big change this school year in that I am sending my oldest to high school so I will only have four kids during the day. 

Last week I did an essentials trip of grocery shopping!  I am trying to keep the grocery budget down for the next few months because we have six birthdays, an anniversary and Christmas to worry about before the end of the year so we will need extra in our “gift budget”. I really need to get myself motivated to bake up some goodies as that would decrease the baking supply items (butter, zucchini, blueberries & mashed bananas) that I have in the freezer.  

This week’s meals are simple and using what I have on hand in the freezer and pantry.   I am going to be doing some baking this week, along with shifting the family from summer vacation to school routine.  I need to get the baking done so that I have items to stick in my hubby’s and oldest son’s lunch.

This week’s lunches that are listed below are for the kids and me! Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water.   Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch so I don’t take the time to really plan his lunches. I just take the next container of leftovers in the stack in the fridge that I have prepared ahead of time.

Singing Sunday---Came To My Rescue

Came To My Rescue
by Hillsong United
Songwriters: Joel Davies, Marty Sampson, Dylan Thomas

Falling on my knees in worship
Giving all I am to seek your face
Lord all I am is yours

My whole life
I place in your hands
God of Mercy
Humbled I bow down
In your presence at your throne

I called you answered
And you came to my rescue and I
I wanna be where you are

In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high
