Menu Plan: Week of Sept.13th-Sept.19th

by GettingFreedom on September 11, 2009

Today marks the remembrance of a life changing moment in my family’s life. Today, September 13th, marks the 6th anniversary of my father’s very unexpected passing. While many good things have come from it, it feels no better today than it did 6 years ago. I consistently fight back tears, many of them joyful, because he was a humorous, loving man. However, my heart still aches that my children will never know him. But we are making sure that they know him.

In any event, today we (our church family) are celebrating the kick off of the Fall Season. If I had to pick a favorite season, it would be fall. It screams soups, comfort foods, beautiful colors and sweaters, which equals love in my book. ;)

I’m going to try a different menu plan format, and see how it works. I might end up going back to the old one.


  • Breakfast: Bacon and Egg Sanwiches Cereal. Had to leave earlier than expected to get extra supplies for the fall kickoff.
  • Lunch: Fall Kickoff at church. Huge BBQ planned; bringing Caramel Apple Trifle for dessert.
  • Dinner: Snacks. After a big lunch like that, there is no reason for a full-on dinner!

  • Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats w/bananas
