Yes, I know it's only Thursday

But we are flying to Traverse City tomorrow to see our family there because we weren't able to attend Spencer's birthday party last Sunday.  Tomorrow's weather is supposed to be beautiful so we are going to take advantage of it.  Both Lil and Spence are working from 11-4 so we will have time to visit with Jen and Randy before they join us for dinner and we head home.  I'm looking forward to seeing them all.

It is hard to believe he is 14 and starting High School.
Where does the time go??

That means that I needed to plan my weekly menu today instead of tomorrow.  Next week we are celebrating #CookoutWeek.  That is good news for you, my readers, because each day not only will I be sharing a new recipe with you but 50 other bloggers will be sharing their recipes all week long as well.  We have a huge giveaway to raffle off to one of our lucky readers as well so make sure you stop by on Monday to learn more about it and enter to win.

Before I post my menu, let me share our plans for the week.  On Saturday, Frank is teaching a CPL class so I will be providing muffins and coffee for breakfast and lunch for the class.  When class is over we have a graduation party to attend.

Sunday, my friend, Vicki, and her daughter, Torie, are hosting a wedding shower here at our house. Frank and I are meeting Tingting and Melody at church down by their house.  After Mass we are going to the Farmer's Market nearby and then we will be bringing Mel home with us for the day. The rest of the week is pretty quiet but I am sure we will find things to keep us busy.  This month has 5 Wednesdays so I will be at the food pantry this week.

Here is what I am planning to make each day.....always subject to change as you well know.

Muffins and Coffee
Pulled Pork Sandwiches
