menu plan monday ~ august 14, 2017

I spent most of last week cleaning up the craft room. I finally found the counters.


Among many other things I located, I also found three Putz houses and a Putz church that had been painted and then forgotten. I put panes in the windows and then found matching bases for the houses. I need to make a base for the church as I didn’t have one already made that matched the colors of the church. Two of the houses need window and door frames.

Middle Daughter and Youngest Daughter went shopping last Thursday. They brought back a toy for the kitties. A carrot stuffed with catnip…the cats are taking turns wrestling with the carrot…this is Amy.

Amy loves her carrot.

Saturday we traveled to Older Son’s house and enjoyed a delicious meal. To get there, we crossed the Stan Span across the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri. Otherwise known as the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, it is beautiful.

We had a great visit with our son and his family. It was the first time I got to see their new home. So much more room than they had before. We are very happy for them.

Here is the menu for the week.

Roasted New Potatoes
Steamed Cauliflower with Cheddar Cheese
Garden Salad

Cheesy Burgers
Sliced Tomatoes

Fridge Food


Sausage Casserole

We will have company over the weekend and an eclipse party on Monday. I am excited about the opportunity to see a total solar eclipse. We will have two minutes and 16 seconds of totality in our back yard! It should be fun!

    Nice pic of the clean craft room. Mine could use some attention since I have been organizing closets lately instead of crafting. Love the cat carrot – and I don’t think I have seen a pic of Amy before?? Hope you have a good time with your company and at your eclipse party!

    Hi, Laney! Yes, we don’t get many pictures of Amy. She lives in the basement. Her choice. She spends almost all her time there. Every two or three weeks, she wants to come upstairs for some people time, then she asks to go back down. A funny little cat.

    I am enjoying my cleaned up craft room! There are still some things to sort through, but I can work at the counter in comfort. 🙂
