Interfaith guest blogger request

I have been thinking a lot about faith and how it influences our lives. I have some thoughts kicking around in my head about it all but I would really love to hear from lots and lots of folks.

Here are the parameters.

Deadline for submissions is May 31st,

No length requirements but here are some ideas to get you started 🙂

I want to know about your faith and how it plays out in your daily life.

How does it influence your actions and how active you feel you are with your faith?

I am hoping this will be a discussion with many different faiths represented so please be respectful of others.

The more the merrier so let your friends know!

Thank you all I am so excited about this!

Market Day and our Food Plan

As you know I have been talking obsessively about rhythm. I worked out a activity rhythm for Little.

I also have been working on meals for each day. I already (usually) plan out our meals for the week. However I have taken it to a new level of crazy. Each day now has a theme for dinner. It has taken a while to come up with ones we like and they are by no means set in stone yet.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Pasta Mexican Soup n Salad Stir fry Leftovers or Pizza BBQ Fancy Family

As you can see, within each category is a wide range of foods. This helps with us not getting stuck in to much of a rut. Whats more our dinners are always changing based on what is in season and whats at the market. I use the above table to plan my meals. I add in one more row and then write in what the weeks actual meals will be.

Monday really should be “pasta”. Sometimes we have pasta (I use the gf brown rice kind from trader joes) and sometimes it is vegetables that are the pasta. Thin slices of zucchini or spaghetti squash. This is lovely as it is always a quick meal and usually a one pot meal.

Tuesday started as taco Tuesday and quickly morphed into Mexican food. There is so much yummy Mexican food and such variety! While I love my tacos (and I do I could eat them every day for lunch and just be ecstatic) We like to branch out too with moles and fish or seafood Veracruz style.

Wednesday finds me usually needing a little lighter fare. Depending on the time of year we may have soup or salad or both. Either way I’m happy. Sometimes doing a family salad bar is fun too.

Thursday is my lest set in stone day. So far stirfrys have worked but then we are in spring. I have a feeling this will change to meat and potato baked in the oven day when we are in the colder part of the year.

Fridays I used to try to make a nice dinner as a celebration of the end of the week. I  found though that we just had so many leftovers and often we were out on our adventure of the day or hubby was doing some personal friend time after work. Also by Friday I’m tired! So leftovers it is. If we don’t have enough I can make a pizza relativity quickly with what every veggies we need to use up for the week. It is also the night for being in pjs early and watching a family movie.

Saturday are our day to grill or BBQ at least right now. This may change with the seasons too but right now it is wonderful! also lets face it we live in a place that you can grill pretty much all year round.

Sunday fancy family dinner is the night I make our normal Sunday dinner fare. Meatloaf and roast chicken see their day to shine.

Now to finish my list and get off to the market! Do you all have a food rhythm?

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
