Menu Plan Monday: Holy Week

I still have a post in the drafts file about our trip and Elijah's birthday surprise. There is also a Finished Object Friday post that never made it out. I'd like to say these will get done this week, but with all of the Holy Week preparations, I cannot make that promise.

There are more meat fast days this week and a strict fast for Good Friday, which only Rich will be observing. This is the pinnacle of the Church year that we are approaching and we are excited and awed, even now, even after years of celebrating and meditating on the passion and suffering of our Lord and the joy and hope of His resurrection.

In the meantime, we are going through a tough time during this Holy Week as well. It is nothing I can discuss at the moment, but if you would be praying for our whole family, I would appreciate it. In fact, please pray for everyone involved, which extends beyond our family. We have some tough decisions down the pike, coming sooner than we expected, and there are circumstances that might push us one way or the other out of frustration or reaction rather than prayer and discernment.

This past week's meals were shifted all around because we had some things going on during the week that we didn't expect as well as something I'd forgotten.
If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can.
What is on your menu this week?

If you are still on the lookout for saltines I may have found them for you today. They are at Albertsons, the Wild Harvest Organic brand and they are on sale this week 2 for $6. The ingredients are as follows: Organic wheat flour, Organic EVOO, Salt, Water. I have not tasted them yet. Hope that helps you.
And your family will be in my prayers.
