Menu 2019: July 1-28

We are settling into life in our new home slowly but surely. It's always interesting to see how long it takes to figure out a new normal. Since we have moved twice in the last year, I am hoping it doesn't take as long to get settled. There are still plenty of boxes to be unpacked and either put away or given away/sold. We are attempting to only keep what we need, love, and have space for. We're still working to get some final remodeling finished up, but I think that's normal for anyone who owns a home. :D
Anyway, here's the menu for July.

Moist and Flavorful Roast Chicken Leg Quarters

My kids LOVE chicken legs, but my hubby does not. I came up with this recipe so that we'd have legs for the kids and thighs for the hubby and me. It's super simple and very flavorful. You can make enough for your family, or mass quantities for a big group. I've had several requests from family and friends for this recipe so I figured that I should finally get it posted.

Menu 2019: June 3-30

Whew! We made it to June. It's been a crazy 10 months for our family, but we've finally settled all in the same place. The kids and I moved into our house completely the last week of May and I am thoroughly enjoying having my hubby and kids all under one roof. There is still going to be some adjustment time for everyone - new house, new schedule, new church, and new friends. We got a good deal of our unpacking done on weekends over the last couple of months but there are still boxes to go through and basement space to set up. Most of the remodeling has also been finished. We have a few projects left to finish, but they shouldn't take too long.
We were blessed by our new church family doing a "Pack the Pantry" project for us. It was a completely unexpected, but wonderful, thing. I was able to skip grocery shopping for the whole first week that we were in the house. It also helped get me further along on writing up my menu for June as I already had full cupboards to choose from. :D

Menu 2019: December 30-January 26

Since my last post, God has given us clear direction as to the where we are to go. My husband has been offered a job at a church on the other side of the state and he starts work on the 3rd. We are still working through all the logistics of commuting till we find a house. I would greatly appreciate your prayers as we transition to this new ministry over the next several months.
In the meantime, here is my proposed menu for January. I am trying to work off what we currently have in the fridge, freezer, and cupboards so a few of them might be a little out of the ordinary. :D
