We still haven't managed to finish celebrating our Big Helper's birthday - but this time the company got sick and the party got rained out. We're on again for this weekend! We did manage to do the birthday dinner out, but sadly she was disappointed by the fish and chips she so wanted to try out at a restaurant. She's asked for them at home, so we'll be having those this week.
With commitments at night by at least one person in the family every single night this week - such a rare thing for us! - I'm keeping dinners very simple so I can be cleaned up in a reasonable amount of time.
So, here goes: this is what we'll be eating this week.
- Southwestern breakfast tacos
- baked doughnuts, oranges
- breakfast muffins, bananas
- cinnamon rolls, fruit
Lunches will be our usual assortment of leftovers or sandwiches with yogurt or cheese and sliced fruits or veggies.
- Mexican pizza, corn
- Chicken corn soup, breadsticks
- Dinner at church
Our House Party should finally happen on Saturday! I won a Johnsonville Sausage House Party, and it looks as if we'll have more than 20 people here. The kids are looking forward to some playtime outside with their friends, and we'll all enjoy a beautiful day and yummy food. For that, we're planning to make Italian baked beans, pizza, lasagna, rigatoni with Bolognese sauce, and a cheesy dip. My Big Helper's planning her first trifle, as well.
What are you cooking up this week?
