Menu Plan: November 8 - 14

We have a pretty busy, crazy week this week. More than normal. So, we're doing some repeats and taking some short cuts. However, we're going to try to light some Martinmas lanterns this year, and we'll have our rolls in celebration. It's so appropriate that Veteran's Day falls on his feast day. And it's nice that it is one of the few federal holidays that Rich gets off of work, especially since he is a veteran himself. We take off liturgical feasts and some fasts from schools, and otherwise ignore the government's holidays and schedules, unless Rich gets the day off, then we join him. This is the first year that we've had to consider a school schedule other than ours, though, since Alexander's program is at the community college. So, we've rearranged some of our normal plans so he doesn't have to miss school, or only one day for one of them.

Anyway, this is the last week of our co-op for the term, but that means the end of session and potluck, and we have a neighborhood potluck, and next week ballet ramps up to take the place of co-op, as the three older girls are in a winter performance this year (not Nutcracker - we thought we wouldn't have two shows this year since it wasn't a Nutcracker year, but they added a winter cabaret). Then, of course, is the gearing up for Thanksgiving, and then Advent, and off we go! Oh, and Alexander will have finals, too! Somewhere in all of this, we need to get a pig butchered, and we need to butcher a bunch of turkeys. We have one in our freezer, so we definitely have a bird for Thanksgiving, but we have several that are slated for the freezer, and soon.

Below, I include our daily Bible readings which we use to read through the entire Bible each year. We read through all of the Old Testament and New Testament, reading the Psalms and Proverbs twice. Remember that the Psalms are according to eastern numbering in our daily Bible reading, also I Kings is the original designation, it is I Samuel in western Bibles (II Kings is II Samuel in the west, III Kings is I Kings, and IV Kings is II Kings, I Ezra is also called I Esdras in other translations, II Ezra is often translated as Ezra or II Esdras).

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.
