Weekly Menu including the Holiday Weekend.....

We will soon be celebrating Independence Day.  2020 has been a terrible year thus far for the USA.  We could have used some parades and patriotic gatherings.  They will be few and far between and those gatherings that are being held are spurring more strife and division amongst our Nation.  If this is what making America great again looks like.....please time travel me back to when some people thought it wasn't great and needed to change.

We are living in a time when our Governing Bodies are either supporting "peaceful protests" where our police officers are targeted for murder or "Armed Militant Protestors" have been described as "fine upstanding citizens" who just felt the need to storm a state capitol armed to the teeth and scream profanities and hurl accusations at the officers assigned to keep the peace.

Only 7% of police officers would recommend this job in today's world.  What are we going to do when there are no police officers?  We are going to call in the military and all of our rights as we have come to know them will be gone. It is a scary scary time with such great division between our political parties that there is no longer any middle ground.

As for me, I am holding out much hope that our country is strong enough to survive this and that one day soon we will all again unite to be one, undivided country who puts our fellow man's needs first, respects one another and values the diversity and differences that make the country so strong and proud.  We need to come together in the middle and let those on the far left and far right slink away into the darkness.

However you choose to celebrate this holiday, I pray for your health and safety.  If you are here in Michigan, where we expect severe temps all weekend, stay hydrated and cool.  I think we'll be spending a quiet weekend in the pool.  Sunday we are going to see Aunt Irene, she said she is hungry for tacos so we'll be taking the fixings over to have dinner with her.

My Weekly Menu from last week was a complete bust because we had a lot of leftovers from the Teen's birthday party to use up.  I did make some fun Leftover Hamburger Tacos for Tuesday but didn't make the puffy taco shells.

So this week's menu contains many of the items I had bought for last week's menu.  Please stop by each day as I share photos and recipes.  Until we meet again stay safe and have a Happy July 4th.

  1. I couldn't agree more. I am not from the far left but I have been treated that way by many, many, many. This country will never be healed until we get rid of the current president. He is relishing all the divide he has caused. Your menu looks great. I am sitting here thinking about going to get me a rib dinner from our local BBQ place. Happy Fourth of July.
