Menu Plan Monday & Recipe for “Spooky Spiders”

We had a wonderful weekend with our daughter (Christi from Frugal Novice), son-in-law, and two little grandsons.  The oldest grandson, who is three years old, got sick with the stomach virus and was so pitiful!   He said emphatically, “Stop that, throw-up!  Stay in my mouth!!”  We were all thankful when he felt better!

Well…this was not the most appetizing topic to begin with…sorry about that!  Let me get on with our menu.

Monday: Left-overs

Tuesday: Salmon patties, salad, carrots

Wednesday: Rotisserie Chicken, baked potatoes, salad

Thursday: Leftover chicken, corn, green beans

Friday: Texas Chicken Vegetable Soup (just a little spicy)


“Spooky Spiders” Peanut Butter & Crackers (from Gooseberry Patch’s “Kids in the Kitchen, Year ‘Round Fun”)


  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Buttery round crackers
  • Mini pretzel sticks
  • Raisins
  • Red cinnamon candies or mini candy-coated chocolates
  • Candy sprinkles

Spread a small amount of peanut butter on a cracker.  Put 4 pretzels on each side for the 8 legs of a spider.  Top a second cracker with a small amount of peanut butter and gently press onto first cracker.  Add raisin or candy eyes and decorations to top cracker (peanut butter will hold them on).
