Menu Plan: Ash Wednesday, Valentine’s, Lent… oh, my!


It’s a busy week we’ve got ahead of us!


The fact that we started it all out with a couple feet of snow and a dryer that stopped working just adds to the excitement, right? ;)



Breakfast (for the littles)–Cheerios, Applesauce, Milk

BrunchMigas, Orange Slices

D–I have no clue yet. We haven’t yet made it out of our driveway, our main bath is torn apart, and the clothes dryer doesn’t work– I opted out of Sunday Supper. Too much to deal with!!!




B–Mint Chocolate Chip Oatmeal, Banana, Milk

D–Haystacks (<– there’s little that thrills my children as much as this simple supper)





B–Apple Muffins, Raw Cheddar

D–Tomato Soup w/ gorgonzola crumbles, Italian Cheese Bread



B–Cranberry Vanilla Oatmeal, Milk

D–Spaghetti, Broccoli (<– meatless for all; I’ll be fasting this day as it is Ash Wednesday)


Thursday: (Happy Valentine’s Day!!!)

B–Heart-shaped Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeals, Strawberry Yogurt, Cranberry Juice

D–English Muffin Pizzas w/ Shrimp Hearts (for the kids– date night for us)



B–Choc. PB Banana Smoothies, Toast


D–Salsa Cheddar Pizza*




B–Ham, Egg, & Cheese Bagel Sandwiches

D–Salsa Mac & Cheese w/ Corn


*All Friday pizzas for the next six weeks will be meatless in keeping with our Catholic tradition of meatless Fridays during Lent.

    Just read that the Pope is setting down. I’m not that familiar with the Catholic faith, so can you tell me what affect if any this will have on Lent/Easter? Also how do you feel about it? Why do they elect people to be the Pope who are old? Any information would be awesome. We were talking about it at work this morning but none of us are Catholic.

    • It will have no effect on Lent or Easter. The Catholic church won’t change. I am impressed with the Pope’s willingness to acknowledge his failing health and strength and make a selfless gesture for the good of the church– that shows a lot of character, in my opinion. As far as the age, the position of Pope is, of course, the highest human one within the Catholic church– they look for those with oodles of experience and background. (I am NOT an expert, but I hope that helps??)
