Well, this is looking to be an interesting week at the Olson house. It has been years since my loving hubby has worked anywhere but at home or the church. But, as of last Saturday he is working a part-time job assisting the manager at a local grocery store near or house.

Jeff is excited about this opportunity. We have shopped at this store for the last 8 years and over the last year and a half we are finally seeing fruit from all the witnessing we have done there. We now have a total of 4 employees coming to our church and many more showing interest, so Jeff is looking forward to working there and continuing to build a strong testimony with the employees.

What makes things interesting is just adjusting our household schedule and routine around Daddy’s New Work Schedule. We can do it though!!!!!

Here is our menu for the week and how we will work it around Jeff’s schedule.

MONDAY Tuna noodle casserole w/ fruit & crescent rolls (Jeff works until 8pm, so this will be easy to heart up for him when he gets home.)

TUESDAY Tacos (Jeff works from 6-11pm – We can have this dinner prepared and eat together before he leaves)

WEDNESDAY Cubed Steak, Potatoes, gravy, & green beans YUMMY!!!!!

THURSDAY Meatloaf, Baked potatoes, & sourdough bread (This is a crock pot meal. Jeff preached all afternoon on Thursday’s and then teaches Bible Institute in the evenings until 10pm, so I try to have a hearty meal ready before he goes from the retirement homes to the church)

FRIDAY Chicken Cordon Bleu (Jeff works 6-11pm. This will be cooked in the crock pot and we will eat before he goes to work.)

SATURDAY Enchiladas & Spanish rice (Jeff works 12-6pm – so dinner will be on the table when he gets home!)

SUNDAY Taco Salad (a quick, easy meal after church)

Oh the cubed steak and meatloaf sounds so good. Isn't it funny how certain foods mean comfort to you! Hope you have a great week!

This all sounds so delicious. I would love to have your crockpot recipe for chicken cordon blue if you wouldn't mind sharing. I just posted my first menu today.
