Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday, everyone. Remember that sore throat? Well, it's turned into a full blown head cold. Ick! I have a very strong suspicion that it's going to turn all my good intentions and plans for this week into nothing more than good intentions and plans. I'm hoping not, but we'll have to see. After all, taking care of myself is more important than moving stuff out to the barn, right? Right.

Now, due to this unexpected illness, I did have a bit more time to catch up on a few computer items this morning. I'm going to be helping in another "charity" scrapbooking group. Some of you may remember the scrapbook that some of us put together for Anita.Now, I'm going to be creating pages for a little girl named Abby. As a mom, her story is heartbreaking and yet, inspiring as she continues to battle her way through life. This morning, I was lucky enough to be able to choose some photos to create scrapbook pages of. I feel honored to be able to do this for this family. When the pages are complete, I'll post photos of them here but for now, I'd love it if you all read Abby's story and left some love for her mom on their blog.

Being able to find support and to give it, is just one benefit of being a blogger. Another is finding incredible blogs that make your life easier. I've found one such blog and I have to share it with you. It's Can I Get The Recipe? I love this blog/website! Plus, I've interacted some with the lovely lady behind the site on Twitter and she's super nice! Double bonus, if you ask me. I dislike using/reading sites where I can't feel a connection with the person behind the code. Well, being sick and the fact that she put up a totally delicious looking menu this week, I did zero thinking for my menu. I'm totally taking hers. Did I mention that she also has it setup so you can print the shopping list right off of her site? Of course, I didn't know this until I'd already written it out, but that's not her fault! lol!
