|I adore basil! I love getting big bunches of it and smelling it all week as I clip away at it for meals and I might just need to make a little pesto this week too! :)|
We'll also be starting a new series at church this week called God Is and all of us will be joining a bible study that start Wednesday nights. I was a bit hesitant to do this evening activity since it falls right smack in the middle of our dinner hour BUT the last month has taught me how to improvise meals more than anything! So for the next 7 weeks instead of going out to grab a bite before we go, we'll have a picnic/sack dinner together before we head our separate ways for the evening. Also after much thought, we decided to have our girl do Awana this year instead of waiting a year. Even though the class is at night, it does happen during our bible study and we know miss cricket will love it! Maybe she'll asleep the night through from being so worn out?? :) I'm also excited to start a new photo challenge (as recommend by my husband) appropriately called God Is. I can't wait to share his idea with everyone! Stay tuned!!
As for emptying our pantry this last week and meals....we've got some serious leftovers! Several meals I'd planned for last week didn't happen because of sheer exhaustion on my part so we enjoyed the lasagna and the lentil soup I'd made and had froze especially for days just like that! I wanted SO bad to go out but instead I just put that money in the giveaway bowl. We also had many family visitors last week and all of them let me spoil them with a home cooked meal instead of going out. I was so grateful for their understanding of our desires to keep it simple and cheap!! This weeks meals are as follows:
And one leftover.

We'll enjoy those heros while we watch the homecoming parade along with a bag of chips and of course the click of a camera. What's on your meal plan for the week??
