Menu Plan: June 21 - 27
Today was a lovely Father's Day with Rich, but also with some of the "grandparents" from our evening church. They took us all out for dinner at a local wood fired pizza place and we had such a normal, fun time with them. What a blessing it was for all of us!
Alexander has a job interview tomorrow for his first "real" job in his field. He was only able to do an internet interview for one company during all of this craziness, but they ended up letting many of their employees go because of the economic impact of all the Covid policies. So, when he put in his resumé for this job, it was exciting that shortly afterward they called him for an interview in person. We are praying for him!
The girls get to go to their studio this week, too, for intensives, and they are all so grateful for that. It has been a good week in that sense. Dominic is doing some house sitting/dog sitting for some friends who are camping this week, and earning a bit of money that way, too. Which is good, because he found out two weeks before he was supposed to "graduate" (they weren't doing graduation), that he was two credits short, so he has to get ready for a summer class so he graduates. Fortunately, he found one that was exactly two credits and was something he thought was valuable to him as well as fulfilling requirements for his degree. Rich is taking a couple days off this week to work on the garden and rest after all the early mornings and late nights he had to do at work recently. Last week, he did a lot of working from home to try to get a little rest, too, but these couple days will do him some real good. After all the rough things we have gone through so far, it is wonderful to have some good news and experiences right now. Glory to God for all things!
I switched some things around our menu last week, so I am making one of those meals this week. We are continuing with our Croatian theme, and moving around the Mediterranean a bit, as well. Because of our schedule this week, breakfasts need to be quick and/or easy to make and eat on the go.
