Menu Plan Extravaganza! Jenny Fox Shain

No More Tears Menu Planning!!!

First, I’d like to challenge you to PRAY before you meal plan. Ask God, the Father of food, appetite, & the creator of every good thing,

“What do YOU want me to feed my family this week?”

Next, be still & allow yourself to HEAR God. Don’t do anything until you do this first.

God will provide ideas & provisions that you do not have access to. He is Jehovah Jireh, “My Provider.”

Ok, onward & upward!

Did you see this idea on Pinterest?…my home away from home? 🙂 Welcome to “The Foxy Version!”

If I have chicken (“Kn”), I simply look under the beige & see what I can cook! Slide in your meals for the week, then take a photo of it with your cell phone, pull it up at the grocery store on your phone to see what you need to buy.

White=Venison, Pink =Beef, Purple=Pork, Blue=Snacks & Sandwiches, Green=Veggies, Raw, Salad, Smoothies.

I am going to re-do the top to make the weekdays 2 inches longer & in 1 piece. Also, I made several blanks to write on & for undecideds. I’m going to add “Dinner at Church,” “New Recipe,” “Out to Eat,” & more!

To make this Menu Plan yourself:

1. Go into making calendars on your computer. Delete the numbers. Type in your meals in each square.

PRINT! TADAAA!!!! (I used card stock) Now CLAP & CHEER for yourself 🙂 because it took me like a year to get this part done! haha! I kept adding more menu ideas to a recipe file.

2. Laminate if you can. (careful to cut around the “bubble” seal)

3. Buy a strip of magnets at a craft store & cut up, stick on. I bought 10′ roll for $3 at Michaels.

PS: This project took me about 6 hours… I was very relieved when I thought of doing this in the calendar mode!

Now, GO GET THAT MENU PLANNIN! Do it girl friend!

Alabama Theatre Series, “The Mighty Wurlitzer”

“The Mighty Wurlitzer”

Photography by Jenny Shain

The Might Wurlitzer, also known as “Big Bertha” is the only gold leafed Wurlitzer of it’s kind. Installed in 1927 for the opening of the “Showplace of The South,” this tremendous antique instrument can be seen and heard at The Alabama Theatre.

It’s design included eight sets of percussion, complete sound effects for silent films, and now has been expanded to blow 2,008 pipes! *Secret: many of which are hidden behind the theatre’s right curtain!*

The Alabama Theatre was titled “The State Historical Theatre” in 1993 and has undergone an incredible floor to ceiling restoration that included cleaning or replacing the vast areas of gold leaf paint.

For me, the Alabama Theatre will always hold a very special place in my heart. It reminds me of the good ole days, leaning over the balcony watching “White Christmas” with my family. Thinking about my grandad, “Gene,” climbing up the back alley fire escape to watch a movie here when he was a kid, too poor to buy a ticket. And thinking about one day when it was being built in 1927, my great grandmother was giving birth to my Papaw grandfather. I guess as an artist and a musician, it seems like the perfect place too. Showing that the fine arts do matter, that good design, great architecture, history, & family all come together to celebrate life & talent. I think that is really important. Don’t you?

See the Mighty Wurlitzer in action!
