Menu Monday

Another week has gone by and to be honest with you it seems like one big blur of work, laundry, kitchen duty and under eye concealer.

Nonetheless my family has to eat and so on Sunday evening I sat down again with our family's schedule & a list of what's in the pantry. Then I created this plan.

I call it Menu Monday.
My DH (darling husband) calls it brilliant
and (sometimes) the kids call it delicious!

I consider cooking for my Tribe more than a chore. I imagine it's my way of offering them the nourishment they need to thrive as well as it being an opportunity to gather them around the table -and in a season where we are bogged down with work, school and games - bringing everyone around a meal is time that I personally treasure.

May you too, find your own way to love and care for your family. Whether it's in the kitchen, the car or over bedtime stories and snuggles, I hope you are carving out memorable moments for your family.

However the waffle fry nachos are one of my family's favorites! and my hubby fell in love with the Taco Soup recipe! So to all you cyber friends who post your recipes I LUV it! Don't stop!

  1. This sounds awesome! I think I may have to come back to some of these!

  2. We love taco soup in our family, too, although I think we use a different recipe.

  3. Thanks blackheartbetty! I hope you come back and like the recipes! @JenR this was the first time I madet this taco soup and I gotta say it was a bit more like a chili than a taco soup but as I said Aaron loved it! Also it was THE BOMB over chips for an awesome pile of nachos I made last night!!
