menu plan monday ~ june 20, 2016

Happy birthday to my sister Genny! I just came back from a fun weekend with her and my other four sisters and sister-in-law. We have Sisters’ Weekend once a year and it’s always a lot of fun. We made necklaces, some using beads from necklaces our mom wore.

Sisters' Weekend

On Sunday, our families joined us and we had “Pies for Guys” after dinner. Two apple pies, a blackberry pie and a peach pie. With ice cream, of course. Yummy! A small thank you considering all the things the dads in our family do for us.

Pies for guys

My own dad enjoyed having all seven children there for dinner on Sunday, as well as some of their spouses and children and children’s children. He is a great blessing to our family and we are thankful to God for him. I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating with your own fathers or remembering them with love and thankfulness.

We came home with two coolers of farm fresh beef, as well as four dozen eggs, that my niece and her husband raised on their farm. It will be nice to have such good meat stocked in the freezer, and their eggs are always delicious. Chris and Julie will have beef halves and quarters available this fall, if anyone is interested.

The menu for the week is as follows.

Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Sourdough Bread
Boiled Eggs

Tacos and Fixin’s
using some of Chris and Julie’s beef.

Ham or Turkey Sandwiches
Sourdough Bread
Celery Sticks
Cucumber Spears

Fridge Food

Roasted Chicken in the Crock Pot
