Fortified Friday #1

Okay, this could be taken more than one way, and I might do it several ways.  I can publish things to help  build you up spiritually, emotionally, physically, etc.  So tonight I plan to publish the meals I will be fixing this week.  I have listed at the bottom of this post the two books I am using--Family Feasts for $75 a Week and The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook.  I will not be listing the actual recipes, but I will give you page numbers and tell you the name of the recipes.  These are highly recommended by me!  They are outstanding.  I checked them out at our library and knew I had to have them.  I will also not be giving the days.  I usually plan out recipes just by Meal 1, Meal 2, etc.

Meal 1:  Slow Cooker Meatballs with Spaghetti ($5 Dinner Mom p. 65), mixed veggies, garlic bread

Meal 2:  Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Biscuit Topping ($75 Feast  p. 100-101), veggies

Meal 3:  Sweet Potato-Crusted Chicken ($5 Dinner Mom p. 127), butternut squash, sautéed red potatoes

Meal 4:  Jazzy Ramen Stir-Fry ($75 Feast p. 131)

Dessert:  Apple Crisp with Crunchy Oat and Brown Sugar Topping ($75 Feast  p. 246)

I am sure I will add things here and there, but this will get me started.  And it will certainly fortify my family.  If you get these books, check these recipes out.  I have not ever tried any of them, but these books do not disappoint.

Now to fortify you spiritually.  Don't forget to pray for our country.  Every time I turn on the news, I am reminded that this earth is not my ultimate destination.  But also know that no leader is in power without God's having placed him/her there.  Remember Pilate and Nero.  If we think we have it bad, just remember that we American haven't known true persecution.  Go to Yemen, and you will see Christians getting persecuted!



  1. I'm going to check these books out. Are there many healthy recipes in them?

  2. There are lots of healthy recipes in these books. Both add in the vegetables, and they don't do lots of fried stuff. The recipes are good, and I always notice that what I spend at the grocery store is less when I use these.

  3. The sweet potato crusted chicken is enough to get me to look for this book - thanks!

  4. Sorry I didn't get by sooner; I was out of town for the last four days.

    I like this idea. Now I'll have to see if my library has the books.
