Weekly Plans

Last week was a busy week at the Hughes Home.  I purpose to keep our lives from getting to0 busy.  We say "no" frequently.  But every once in a while with jobs, church, and kids, a crazy week is inevitable.  I did not cook one meal last week.  I'm looking forward to a "normal" week and being able to serve my family by cooking for them.  So here's how the week will pan out (hopefully!).

Digging Deeper Into God's Word:  With Easter being  a little over a month away, I'm starting   The Passion of Jesus Christ by John Piper.  It's meant to be read in the 50 days leading up to Easter.  I highly recommend it.  It's a great way for me to prepare my heart for Easter.

Motherhood Ministry:    With the busyness of the past weeks, I didn't get to "enjoy" my children.  I was basically in survival mode! So this week, I want to have fun with them, play a game with them, play catch with Dylan, play school with Holly.  My goal is to "play" at least once this week with each of my children.

Marriage Builders:   Working on being attentive to Brian!-this will mean closing the computer or putting down the phone to be an active listener!

What's For Dinner:  

Monday- Beef Stroganoff and salad and french bread (I have lots of ground beef in the freezer that needs to be used!)

Tuesday-  Bacon Wrapped Chicken in the Crockpot, roasted carrots
Wednesday- Sonny's for kids eat free.
Thursday- Taco Pasta, cornbread with salad

Friday- Chicken Parmesan Subs, corn

 Gotta Get It Done:    *Catch up on Laundry!  Normally I don't do laundry during the week, but since I'm behind the washer will be running all week!

On the Calendar:   
*Monday-baseball practice for Dylan
(I LOVE that this section is empty!!!)

Are you making any great recipes this week?  Please share!!

Blessings to you,


  1. Tonight is leftover spaghetti that Darrin made, and tomorrow is chicken, rice and roasted green beans, ( chicken is cooking in the crockpot now). I am afraid that this may be the only "planning ahead" that I will do all week. LOL
