Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I have been planning my menus for awhile, but I found a great website orgjunkie.com. Every monday more than 200 people post links to their sites with their weekly menu plans. So if I am ever stuck for ideas here is an endless source of plans and recipes. Too Cool!!!

My menus must be quick and easy and I have found that I use my crockpot at least twice a week! Here is my menu plan for this week.
Breakfasts are Cereal, Whole Wheat Waffles, Oatmeal, or Homemade Bread with PB&J
Lunches are usually Leftovers
Suppers this week are:

Monday Pasta & Veggies and a slice of fresh bread

Tuesday Crockpot Stew and a slice of fresh bread

Wednesday Juicy Meatloaf and Peas

Thursday Tuna Casserole (have to look for a new recipe)

Friday Birthday Adventure to the Zoo, no plans for meals but likely something in a bag!

Saturday Chicken (have not decided on a recipe yet)

Sunday Southwestern Pot Roast and a slice of fresh bread


Thanks for the advice! I will definitely try to watch out for the triggers for his temper tantrums. I read an article that three year olds tend to have temper tantrums when they want to control the situation but someone else needs to be in control- so I am not quite sure how I would avoid a situation like that, but I would probably just need to try to give him as much control as is appropriate considering the circumstances. Good luck with the potty-training. For us, the first few weeks were rough, but now things are going great.
And, my son also called his belts "seat belts"- it took me a long time to get him to say the right word :)

Sounds like a yummy week!

Take care,


Your Pot Roast recipe sounds so delicious. So, a jar of salsa provides all the flavor? I would've never thought of that. I do like a bit of tomato sauce in pot roast, so I think the salsa would be even peppier (another techinical cooking term:)

I see you need a tuna casserole recipe. I linked to our favorite; I also use it with leftover turkey or chicken. Basically anything with cream of something soup is good in my book.


Take Care,
