Menu Plan Monday Week 2

Good morning, my wonderful readers!  Here it is…Monday again and time for this year’s Menu Plan Monday Week Two.  I hope you all had a great start to the new year, because mine has been really good so far.  C & I made it to church two Sundays in a row.  Woo hoo!  Now we just have to keep it up.  We also managed to move two pieces of furniture from my great-grandmother’s house to our on Saturday.

What furniture?  Well, as my regular readers know, I have been slowly finishing our upstairs in the last few months and I am now down to just needing a few pieces of furniture to fill in the rooms.  I mentioned to my Nanny and Aunt M that I was on the look-out for a couple of inexpensive wooden dressers and I didn’t care what shape they were in because I wanted to refinish them.  Unbeknownst to me, they started discussing some old family pieces that were being stored in what was my great-grandparents house.  Talk about serendipity!  I am now in possession of a three drawer dresser with the cutest scalloped top and shelves and also a chiffarobe with three drawers and a door that are just screaming for a little TLC. They both belonged to my great-great grandmother which makes them very special to me! I can’t wait to start on them, which I hope to do this coming long holiday weekend. 

Before I can get to the weekend, I have to decide what to fix this week.  Here goes:

Chili with Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Bread (new)

Taco Ring with fruit (2 nights)

Grilled pork chops with oven baked fries

Basic meatloaf with oven baked fries

Pizza night

Dessert chosen by my father-in-law for his birthday.  Happy birthday, FIL!
