Beef... it's what's for dinner.

My poor Jeremy is sick. He even missed church this morning! I'm pretty sure that it's a sinus infection, but you know how men can be when they're sick. Feeling bad makes them even more sensitive and A WHOLE LOT grumpier. He had several quiet hours today while I took the kids to church and then to town.

Amazingly enough, the school schedule has improved my waking abilities, so I was up by eight and had the kids at church by class time... all by myself. Then after church, the five of us headed to the grocery store to purchase dinner for the upcoming week. Our menu will include Marlboro Man's Favorite Sandwich, Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding, Scotch Collops, Meatloaf w/mashed potatoes, Crockpot Roast with carrots and potatoes, cubed steaks. Sometimes I get the feeling we'd save all kinds of money at the grocery store if we raised/slaughtered our own beef. And we could save a bundle on milk, too.

Now I just need to go through the meat and figure out what day we should eat what, based on the "sell by" dates.

Hey you! I just found my way to your blog and spent a few minutes reading up on what you've been up to. It's good to see that things are going so well for you. I really feel like I've gotten away from God lately, and I've been praying to re-center my life and start following His guidance for me again. It's a difficult habit to break, doing things my way. I can feel the power of even one prayer, though. I feel so much more relaxed, focused, and confident when I spend time in prayer. I'm trying to follow your example, so pray for me, please!

Thanks for that pioneer woman link. I can't wait to try all of her recipes. Hmmmm, butter!

Yes, I just love ALL of her recipes that I've tried! The chocolate cake and the flag cake were HUGE hits at church dinners.
