Menu Plan Monday: March 30th-April 5th

Ahhh...Monday morning. Time to get my dinner plans for the week finalized. It's so nice not to have to go to the store today, since I did that at the end of last week after getting home from our trip.

Tonight we're having friends over for dinner and we are looking forward to that! The nice thing about having to keep the house clean all of the time for showings is you don't have too much to do in the way of cleaning when you have friends over.

Monday: PW's pot roast with all the fixin's
Tuesday: baked talapia, baked potatoes, veggie
Wednesday: country fried steaks w/gravy, mashed potatoes, veggie
Thursday: beans and cornbread
Friday: homemade pizza
Saturday: picnic at the park with our small group
Sunday: overnight bbq beef
Now I've got to get busy for the day! Our Spring Break is officially over and now it's back to homeschool today.


I love organization and I am impressed by homemakers who plan menus...

Sounds like a yummy week you've planned; especially the baked tilapia!

Sounds yummy, Lora. I'd love to know how you make your country fried steak. I've tried a time or two but haven't found a recipe I like.

Believe it or not, I just learned how to make cornbread. We've ate it MANY times before, but I just learned how to make it and we are loving it!

By the way, I think this is my first time to your blog, feel free to stop by and say hello at my blog as well!
I'm a little embarrassed to say that the country fried steaks are from the freezer section and I didn't end up making them after all. They've been put on hold until a later day:)

I did watch a Food Network show recently where Paula Deen showed how she fixes it and it looked amazing!

If they're freezer section and they are good, who cares? Not me!

I'll see if I can look up the Paula Deen recipe though...

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
