Menu Plan

Diva and I had a very relaxed week last week since she was off of school.

She and I went to a food handlers' class so the she {we} can help serve some catering events for friends.  I have to tell you, it was terrifying and made me never want to eat at a restaurant again.  Too many possibilities for contamination...I was happy being ignorant of them.

Well we did it.
We took the plunge at Thanksgiving and had a mighty turducken.

For those of you unaware of what a turducken is, it is a stuffed chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside of a turkey.

After this commercial came out a few years ago, our family since refers to it as "The Mighty Turducken."

That bad boy was delicious!  And although there were only 7 of us at the table, we managed to have enough food for a small army.  Leftovers upon leftovers.

We went to the tree farm and picked out our Christmas tree and once we got it in the house, I let loose of the reigns this year and let Diva trim the tree - with a little guidance.

Our week wasn't completely joyous.  Wednesday night, the husband of one of the most beloved teachers at Diva's school was killed in a car accident out in West Texas.  So as we were thanking God for His many blessings on Thursday, we were also thanking him for the life of a good man and praying for peace for his young widow and their young child.  If you have a moment, please send up a little prayer for that family.

This week I won't be cooking much because party season is in full swing!
We will be eating:

Sunday - Dinner at Church
Monday - Dinner w/Co-Workers
Tuesday - Dinner w/Family
Wednesday - Pinto Beans, Salad, & Cornbread
Thursday - Frittata & Steamed Veggies
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Dinner w/Friends

This is part of Menu Plan Monday.


  1. Wow! I've never had the turducken. (hope I spelled it right)
    It's going to be wicked cold in Vegas. low 40s during the day...low 30s at night That always puts me in the mood for comfort foods.
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. We have had a warm spell again and it is in the 70s here in Texas and feels wonderful outside...but not so conducive to comfort foods. Thanks for stopping by Ms. Berry!


Your turn! Let me know what perfectly practical comments you have.
