Back and gone again

Just yesterday, I returned from the HomeschoolALUMNI national reunion in Larkspur, CO. In just a couple of hours, I'm heading back to the classroom to start the school year.

I discovered last semester that full-time school and blogging don't really mix very well for me. When one adds to that the fact that I am also being employed full-time as a homemaker, and will continue working part time as a seamstress, I don't see too much blogging going on in the coming months. Maybe *some* blogging...just not too much. ;-)

Happy end-of-summer, everyone!

More menus...

Because I know you (all three of you!) are always dying to know what will be on my dinner table all week...teehee...

African peanut chicken
Lime-pear jello
(And yes, I know Sunday is already over...the chicken was so-so, the jello was definitely two-thumbs-up!)

Beef enchiladas
Taco salad

Fried chicken fingers
Mashed potatoes
Melon-cucumber salad

Italian stew
Spinach salad (recipe TBD...I was going to make a garden salad, but someone was giving away spinach at church yesterday, so I brought home a bag)

I will be out of town, so the family will have to fend for themselves! ;-) There should be some leftovers...
