Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

I was so glad to have a few weeks off from planning a menu.  Trying to come up with different, fun meals that pleases everyone is a difficult task. This week I pulled out my Rachael Ray cook books and looked through them for some help.  Some of the ingredients from her recipes are quite foreign to this midwestern girl.  I was raised on the basics of meat and potatoes.  For instance, what I’ve been calling a mini loaf of french bread actually has its own name!  It’s called a baguette.  Who knew?  Well, maybe you did, but it was new to me.  Anyway,  here is our menu plan for this week.

Monday – Mac-N-Cheddar with Broccoli (Rachael Ray – 365: No Repeats)

Tuesday – Gina’s Enchiladas

Wednesday – Buttermilk Baked Chicken and Steamed Veggies

Thursday – Sesame Chicken with Fried Rice

Friday – Beef Fajita Burgers (Rachael Ray – 365: No Repeats) and Grilled Veggies

Saturday – Scramablewiches (Rachael Ray – 365: No Repeats) and Anitpasto Toss

Sunday – Homemade pizza and tossed salad.

I’ll post some of the recipes as the week goes on.  If you see a menu item that you want the recipe for leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to post on it.  Have a great week!

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
