Monday, February 9, 2009

We had such an amazing weekend. My nephews Ryan and Bryan stayed with us over the weekend. Well, it started out on Friday night just being Bryan. It's amazing how well behaved they are when it's just one of them instead of the terrible, they're actually very well behaved most of the time. Ryan was spending the night with his friend Dillon that night. Well, since friday had been a school day Bryan was out around 9:30 that night. Around 11pm, his cell phone rang. It rang about five times. The caller idea read his step-mom's number. Well, on the fifth ring I answered it to try to tell her that Bryan was already asleep. On the other end of the line, all I heard was a kid laughing. So, I hung up and just turned his phone off. Well, it just so happened it was his brother calling him....they were making prank calls. Well....Ryan ended up getting picked up by his Dad at midnight from his friend's house. Then, on Saturday Ryan came over to spend the night with his brother at our house. I tried to explain that Ryan you can't make prank calls like you used to be able to....before caller id. Sometimes, I believe our technological advances have actually not been advances. I wish for a simplier time. I think our lives would be much better. I don't think we would have the disease and sickness that we've been stricken with over the last few years. I believe that the preservatives and additives that are added to our foods have caused so much sickness that we didn't have 40 years ago. Anyway, I guess I will get off my soapbox now.

Week of 2/8 - 2/14

Sunday - spaghetti, garlic breadsticks
Monday - swiss steak, rice and green beans
Tuesday - stuffed green peppers, sweet peas
Wednesday - salmon croquettes, mashed potatoes, broccoli
Thursday - out to eat

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.


  1. A lot of people have a pizza night I see. Ours is Thursdays.

    Looks like a great menu!

  2. Hi Julie! Thanks for coming by my blog and for becoming a follower. I love meeting new blogging buddies! I like to go out to eat on Thursday too, that way it's less crowded.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have fun blogging--I'm addicted!

  4. Hi Julie: I couldn't agree more about the preservatives and garbage in our food supply now! It's terrible. I feel lucky to have been influenced by La Leche League when my oldest child was a baby; that group offered a lot more than just nursing support. They also talked about eating a "whole foods" diet for the health of the entire family, not just the nursing mom. I guess they were ahead of their time because it's really gaining popularity now as a movement. Unfortunately we don't have any good farmer's markets around where I live, but organic food is becoming easier to find at the regular grocery store. I've been "voting with my dollars" for minimally processed organic foods for a long time now, even though it's hard to spend the extra money in this economy. Eating healthy, minimally processed food helped me lose over 45 pounds, and I feel so much better! Stay on that soap box and keep spreading the word- preservatives and additives and "fake foods" are bad, bad, bad!

  5. what a great concept!! I may have to start using your menu!!

  6. Great menu except for salmon. I hate fish, but I know it's good for you.
