I am a SAHM who loves God and the family He blessed me with. We live in middle TN. but are from northern MI. My oldest dd still lives there and gave my my first grandbaby five years ago, Jack - Jack, number two~ baby Hunter is one! I home school my 3 children,16, and 8year old twins. I just graduated my 19 son. So I guess SAHM is a bit misleading - LOL

bI had already done Menu plan Monday yesterday, when I set about making dinner. Although it is around 100 and I was hot in the kitchen, I felt so blessed while making this veggie tray for my family, I wanted to share it. It was very calming and therapeutic, slicing, chopping and peeling. I made my dill ranch dressing first, and then let it chill while I chopped. While the cucumbers were the only thing from my garden, I still took pleasure in it. I did pick some okra too, and baked them today for lunch; in a shake and bake kind of mix. Trying to make them healthier than frying in oil. Turned out pretty well. I used cornmeal, Lawry's and fresh cracked pepper. I worked in a deli for many years, so I get a bit fancy at meal time - LOL
Veggies A La Beth!
Here is my whole Monday meal from Menu planning Monday, Macaroni Lasagna and fresh veggie tray. We also had some whole grain bread with butter.
When I am able to put a hot, wholesome meal on my table, I feel grateful and blessed. So many out there can't. For more Gratituesday visit www.heavenlyhomemakers.com Blessings, Beth Ann
