We have moved 13 times in the past 15 years. Each time, we have learned more about ourselves and more about the Lord. We have learned that each time we need to put down roots as if we'll be there forever while remaining open to God's leading. Wherever we go, whatever we do, we're striving to Bloom Where We're Planted.
There are many things in the world of home-making that I do NOT do well (vacuuming, ironing, mopping floors, etc.). But one thing I got in the habit of doing several years ago is menu planning. I used to assign a day to each meal, but it so often changed that I eventually stopped doing that. Now, my goal is just to make a list of 5-6 meals (Wednesdays usually involve supper at church, and weekends usually involve sandwiches). Here's what's on the list for next week (Weight Watchers Plus points in parentheses):
Breakfast Casserole (7)
Reduced-fat crescent rolls (3)
Fried apples (2)
Stromboli (12) - family favorite, and great for busy nights!
