There is no menu this week because of all the food from church friends.  There’s enough left in the fridge to eat on all week.

Hug those you love every morning before you/they leave. It might be the last time you get to hug them. Make sure that your life is right with God. We have no guarantee of tomorrow.

Here is a song that I love:

Tomorrow is something we are not promised.  I’ve heard that many times.  But it’s just a thoughtful saying, right?   Until tomorrow comes and your loved one is suddenly gone from your life.  That happened to me the next morning after this post published.  My husband died suddenly on Sept. 10th!

Hope everyone is staying cool and surviving the hot weather!  Cooler days should be here before long.  School is still keeping me super busy.  Teachers were worn out by Friday this past week!
Monday:  Catfish, green beans, corn


Tuesday: Food for Life Tortilla Pizzas made on stove top using a griddle…..


Wednesday: Chicken and Black Bean Burritos


Thursday:  Parmesan Crusted Tilapia,  organic spinach salad with mushrooms, organic baby carrots

Friday:  Pizza and salad

Here’s our menu:


Monday: Pan grilled Talapia, sauteed spinach, carrots, chocolate birthday cake


Tuesday: Catfish, veggie salad, chocolate birthday cake


Wednesday: Leftovers, including chocolate birthday cake


Thursday: Chef salad (I need to eat salads for the rest of the month after all this birthday cake!!)

Hope everyone had a nice weekend before the beginning of school this week.  Teachers worked all week including yesterday in the district where I work .  We learned more technology than my mind will absorb at once:  Live Binders, Symbaloo, Smore,, etc.  This is going to be such a busy week that we will probably use coupons and eat out or get carry-out food:


Here’s our menu:


Monday: Chick-Fil-A (coupons)


Tuesday:   Wendy’s salad with chicken (coupon)


Wednesday:  Chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, and okra (great comfort food)


Thursday: Chef salad


Friday: ?

Had a busy week this past week.  I worked at school a couple of days, ran errands, and did things it’s hard to find time to do during the school year.  I plan to be up at school at least two days this week, if not three.  A week from tomorrow is when teachers start their professional development week so I hope to get a lot done this week.


Monday:  Chef salad with turkey


Tuesday: Chicken, zucchini, squash, onion, mushroom, & fresh okra stir-fry


Wednesday: Leftovers


Thursday:  Tilapia, veggies, salad


Friday: Pizza, salad
