menu plan monday ~ september 28, 2010

We had a full weekend. On Saturday, we went to my niece’s house to pick up chickens for the freezer. If you have access to home-raised chickens, do try some. They are delicious, with a fresher, cleaner taste than grocery store chicken. Sunday, after church, the girls went to the zoo. So DH and I had leftovers for lunch. Later, we took a piece of furniture to our daughter. She needed something for the microwave to sit on in their small kitchen and we had a corner cabinet that worked well for her. It was a Craig’s List find. It had been stained a dark color. After sanding and painting, it looked great. I liked it in the corner of the guest room, but DD will get much more use and enjoyment out of it than we have, so I’m sending it to live at her house for now.

As you can see, Buttercup is still loving the homeschooled life. She finds the sun on the windowsill to be the perfect place to nap.

The week ahead is supposed to be cool. I love to make soups in the fall and winter season and DD asked for cheesy broccoli soup last week, so we’re starting the menu with that.
