Life is for the living and we still gotta eat so here is the Weekly Menu

We are so very blessed with such wonderful family and friends.  On the day of Mom's visitation we received so many wonderful food trays, honey baked ham, bread, deli meats, salads, homemade cinnamon bread that was to die for!! (I really NEED that recipe), brownies, snacks and treats.

While we were at the afternoon viewing, John and Kirsten were here setting up all the food and goodies for everyone so that we could replenish our strength during the break before the evening viewing.  It was a God send because it was a very busy and stressful day.  I can't believe how lucky we are.

So that was what we had for dinner yesterday and today is the Mass in celebration of Mom's life after which there will be a reception with food prepared by our funeral committee. It is always a wonderful and delicious spread.

Tomorrow life returns to normal.  I'm going to start working on some of the leftovers.  I will be repurposing some into other meals and some will go into the freezer for later meals.  We don't have any big plans for the week.  It will be nice to get back into a routine.

Here's the Weekly Menu

  1. You have some wonderful friends there. You are truly blessed! Routine is a great thing sometimes. As boring as it can be, many times that's just what we need. Sending good thoughts your way!

    1. Thank you Vickie. I think the "routine" is sometimes very comforting.

  2. You will really be ready for some quiet days ahead! It is wonderful when our family and friends take care of us in our time of need! Sending you a hug!
