Menu Plan Monday

"Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed." John 6:27

Our menu this week is a little different. I'm excited to offer my family a Mexican style dinner one night and then on another night, Dave and I plan to go out to a restaurant here in town. The girl upstairs has graciously said she will watch them for a couple hours. Wow! I'm excited! The kids will enjoy pizza that night.

As for the Mexican dinner, I think I am just as excited about that! I made some pinto beans, and then I am going to mash them real well and add a little salt and a little (not too much) water. We have finally found some fresh peppers (although not jalapeno, but spicy) and we brought some cumin and cilantro seasoning from the States. We can buy crushed tomatoes, onion and garlic at the store. Combine all of this and we should have a nice salsa. I have found something very similar to a tortilla, so we will have bean burritos and chips and salsa! Yum!

On the dinner menu this week:

  • Bean Burritos, chips and salsa, salad
  • Minestrone Soup with bread
  • Fish, steamed vegies
  • Pasta with Vegies
  • Pizza
  • Pasta Bianca

It's Saturday and I'm enjoying some MPM blog visiting while watching "Barney Miller" on Hulu.com.
It's time to expand my recipe sources with some new ideas.

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
