Meal Plan Monday 8/22/11

Last week Sissy started school.  She did great, and I boo-hoo'd like a baby.  Even this morning, she waved at me as she walked down the long hallway to her Kindergarten class, and I boo-hoo'd again!  I hope it gets easier!

So we've been really busy.  Duh!  Everyone else has too.  I'll share a little secret with y'all.  My friend "L" and I auditioned for Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. 


And they loved our tape.  You can watch it if you's too funny!

We created the video last Thursday and emailed the link to the casting director who called back Friday night and said he LOVED it.  We are on pins and needles waiting to see if we get to go on the show.  They'll film in September and October for the new season.  {insert squeal of delight and excitement here!}

Saturday we were able to attend the Saturday program of the "Let God's Kingdom Come!" District Convention.  What a wonderful day!  The afternoon drama brought tears to my eyes and streamed down my cheeks.  Beautiful!

Sunday my husband gave the talk at a neighboring congregation.  We enjoyed dinner with some new friends whom we can't wait to get together with again soon! 

Wonderful, wonderful weekend!

What about y'all?  Did you have a great weekend?

Did y'all see hurricane Irene in the Atlantic?  My husband's family lives in Savannah.  I'm hoping they'll come up and stay with us, but they also have family in middle Georgia too.   It's a little nerve wracking wondering where it will head to.  I hope everyone stays safe.

We have the visit of our Circuit Overseer this week, so two meetings this week at the Hall.

This week we'll be eating some favorites.  No new recipes this week...

Monday:  Leftover rotisserie chicken turned into BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, sweet potato fries and green beans

Wednesday:  Breakfast for dinner:  Scrambled Eggs and Turkey Bacon, oranges and toast

Thursday:  Leftover Pork Roast turned into Stacy's Southwestern Chicken & Rice

Friday:  Thin Crust Pizza (I found some yummy "extra" thin crust pizza at the store on sale for $3.  Only 300 calories for 1/4 of the pizza!)  with Salad

Saturday:  Sweet & Spicy Short Ribs with all the fixings

Sunday:  Sloppy Joes, sweet potato fries, green beans, steamed broccoli

*** YES, "L" has 10 children between she and her husband.  Happy house indeed!

what a great video. I love Food network. I hope you get on the show. It would be awsesome to see you on it, and to win.

I also enjoyed the convention. The dramas this year was great and brought me to tears also.
