Meal Plan Mondays

This week is starting off cool and crisp and will end in the mid 70s. I wish the weather will make up its mind. So our menus for the week will be as such:

Monday - taco soup
Tuesday - Chicken, new potatoes and green veggie
Wednesday - Baked pasta (we are having company) and salad
Thursday - Shake and Bake chicken, new potatoes and veggie
Friday - mom and dad eat out, kids on their own
Saturday - homemade pizza
Sunday - sloppy joes

The sloppy joes are not from a can. I make it from scratch. It is so easy.

Sloppy Joes

3/4 lb ground meat
1/2 cup black beans
1 small onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 c ketchup
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c white vinegar
chili powder to taste

I brown the ground meat, add veggies and cook until veggie are crisp. I then add the black beans mashing them as I work them in. I then add the ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar. Once this has heated up I add the chili powder and continue to cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Serve on hamburger buns or kaiser rolls. This will feed four of us.

Time to start giving thanks .....

Wow it is November already. Has this year been flying by. Are you ready for Thanksgiving yet? I have already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in October so I have had a rehearsal already. I though I would list some things that I am thankful for.

- I am thankful for my Lord and his saving message
- I am thankful for my dear, sweet, patient husband of 26 years. Here is hoping for more years.
- I am thankful for my children Ian and Rachel. As much as they frustrate me I love them dearly
- I am thankful for my on line friends and my friends irl
- I am thankful for our furry, noisy dog who keeps me on my toes
- I am thankful for my pain, that I deal with daily, for it makes me remember to be thankful for the good days and to slow down more.


I hope this helps you think of what you are thankful for during this month of blessing.
