Menu Plan: June 20 - June 26

This week certainly started with a bang! We had Father's Day and a potluck at church, we came home to nap and work in the yard (what Rich wanted to do), and ended the evening with Elijah and Jerome both falling off the play structure, Jerome mostly just scared, but Elijah separating his lower lip from his gums tearing his upper lip and scraping up his wrist pretty badly. He is doing much better today, thank God, but would appreciate your prayers I know. Father's Day went well. We visited a church we hadn't been to yet last week and it seemed to be the best compromise for us out here, but we wanted to visit again and talk more to people there. It does seem to be as good a fit as we will find here, the people are wonderful, the priest is great, there are lots of people in a great range of ages, with many young families, growing families and lots of converts as well. All good signs of a healthy, growing church. We are very thankful for it. Now, we need to schedule a meeting with the priest to talk about some of the things that may be issues for our family, as this church does not commune young children, and all our children have been communing since they were baptized, says the creed a little differently and such.

We are still plodding away on the garden here. The spring and summer were a little late, which is our saving grace, because we are a lot late with our garden work. Locals tell us that the summer sun catches things up quite a bit, which we are seeing, but the weeds are also growing well. Our late frosts killed all the apricots on our tree, so we will have to rely on fruit from folks who live just a little to the south of us this year. We have some frozen apricots from last summer still and a couple jars of apricot syrup from the year or so before that, to get us through.What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.
