Menu Plan Monday- June 13th

Last week was Vacation Bible School for us. Our church along with several other Mennonite churches in Goshen have a joint VBS. Ian got to go to the Preschool class. Their theme was Jesus Cares for Others. He had lots of fun. I helped out as a Family Group Leader for 3rd graders. I too had a lot of fun. For the K-5 grade our theme was Digging for Treasure. We learned how the bible came to be, about oil laps (even got to make some), about Israel at the time of Jesus and what food he might have eaten, and we got to dig for artifacts just like archeologists. My group of 9-11 soon to be 4th graders we full of energy but lots of fun. Cai and Aiden stayed in the daycare were they watched trains from window, played out side and also had a good time. It was a busy week. Filled with crazy afternoons as boys tried to get out all their squirreliness  after being good all morning. While it was lots of fun, I am so glad it's over. Now hopefully we can find a rhythm for the summer. Although things will probably stay chaotic for a few weeks. Cai is learning use the potty! Very exciting- lots of work for mama. Wish us luck.

Here is the menu this week
Monday: Spaghetti Pie (use up that leftover spaghetti in the fridge)
Tuesday: Summer Vegetable Soup (from Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen) with bread
Wednesday: Mondo Bizarro Sauce (a tomato-spinach pesto from Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen) over pasta with salad and veggie
Thursday: Enchilada Casserole? (I still don't know for sure what I'll make this day)
Friday-Sunday: My mother-in-law cooks :) I think we are going to have a cookout Sunday to celebrate Mark's sister's b-day (which was yesterday) and Father's Day
