Menu Plan - Jan. 4


I have to come clean.

Last week's menu plan was fictitious.

I lied.

But, for a very good reason.

See, my sister reads my blog.

And, we were trying to surprise her.

On Dec. 31st, she left to go to Uganda, and we came home to surprise her before she left!

So, I created a fake meal plan last week to "cover" for our trip to surprise her.

It was well worth it... we surprised her.

Hope you can forgive me for lying about what we planned to eat last week.

We ended up eating:

Carrot Bread

Cinnamon Raisin Bread
(and Cinnamon Raisin French Toast!)

New Year's Eve Taco Dip

I hope to get caught up soon and have new recipes posted in the next few days!

This week, we're enjoying:

Breakfast - Apple Cinnamon Rolls
Lunch - Summer Sausage, cheese and crackers
Dinner - Crockpot Bouef Bourguignon (new), peas
Dessert - Mint Pie

Dinner - Ham and Potato Soup, bread

  1. How funny and what a good sister you are to go through all that trouble. Your menu this week sounds great.

  2. I think that is very cool that you went to all that trouble to surprise can definitely tell you guys are sisters!

    How long will she be in Uganda? I will be posting soon on Sparky. She is going to Togo in February. By herself. As in without either parent or anyone from our church. She's 16.

    We'll be coveting prayer.

  3. That is adorable.

    It looks like you had some great eats either way. And delicious things in store for us!

  4. I can't wait to see your doughnut recipe. For Christmas, my mom got a doughnut mold to use to bake them in and they were fantastic. Do you have a mold?

  5. I keep hearing about this rice cooker mac & cheese. Maybe I'm going to have to give it a try ;) I love your blog!

  6. Julia Child's Bouef Bourguignon?

    You are sneaky sneaky. I hope your visit with your family was wonderful.

  7. Looking forward to your cinnamon raisin bread and the french toast version as well. And the baked doughnuts. I love a good doughnut, especially the baked kind!

  8. Very cool, congrats on the fun surprise!!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
