Menu Plan Monday - Nov 2nd

The family dinner table is a place of communion, fellowship and a means of reconnecting with those we care about the most. Over a simple dinner of scrambled eggs or more elaborate family fare of meatloaf and mashed potatoes, important stuff happens. Relationships are built, the news of the day is exchanged and coming events are discussed. More importantly, memories are made for both adults and children. One day, your child will look back on all those dinners around the family table with fondness. One day, we'll will look back wistfully, actually missing the chaos of trying to get everyone to the table while the meal was still hot!

here's my menu for this week. What do you have planned? For motivation and tons of ideas check out Menu Plan Monday.
