Menu Plan: October 4 - October 10

Today is the feast of St. Francis. He brought us the nativity scene and the tradition of the creche at Christmas. He had an affinity for animals and they were comfortable around him, so today is a day for blessing of animals that they would be healthy and fruitful through the year.

This week is also Alexander's birthday. He will be 11 years old on Thursday! He is nearly my height now. I cannot believe it. People get to pick their birthday dinners in our house, so he has picked his. It just goes to show that if you expose children to varied foods of the same sort you eat, they will learn to like all kinds of foods. He picked venison stew, egg noodles and lemon cake. I may add in another vegetable dish or just slice up some fruit to go with it.

We have another change this week. Amira will be moving into the next level of ballet class. Her teacher came to speak to me before class began last week and told me that she thought Amira ought to move up to the next level beginning this week. Amira was so thrilled. We are very excited for her to have the opportunity to advance and continue to learn.What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. Starred recipes will follow separately.
