Menu Plan Monday



Last week we went to a ballroom dancing class with a blogging friend of ours and her hubby.  It was so much FUN!  Although Engineer has declared that he will not be attending the class again.  He claims it is because he does not want to dance with anyone else's wife.  Thanks for trying anyway Engineer.

Our Sunday School class decided to do what one of our members coined as "holistic stewardship" and plant a grove of trees.  It began as a way for our class to memorialize those people who had passed away in our congregation this year.  We then opened it up to anyone who wanted to have us plant a tree in honor or in memorial of someone.  We hosted a Whodunnit mystery dinner fundraiser to pay for the project.  I love that term "holistic stewardship" we are helping beautify our church property, honoring our fellow congregation members, respecting those who have died, working as a team, making a very visible testimony to God's goodness, and doing something great for the environment.

Diva has the week off so I think this is the year where I will be enlisting her help in the Thanksgiving preparations.  We will be hosting it here and there will only be 8-10 of us but we never know who might show up.  No matter.  There will be food.

Here is what we will be eating this week:

Monday - Chili & Cornbread Waffles
Tuesday - Pizza Sandwiches w/Steamed Veggies
Wednesday - Bangers & Mash w/Onion Gravy and Peas
Thursday - Turkey, Dressing, Giblet Gravy, Squash Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Pecan Crusted Sweet Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Green Salad, Steamed Carrots, Buttered Corn, Rolls, Pretzel Salad, Desserts (I'm not in charge of those so I have no idea what we will be having for dessert)
Friday - Date Night

This is part of Menu Plan Monday over at Organizing Junkie.
