Last week we went to pick up the kids who spend two weeks with my parents, so I'll be cooking for the whole family once again. The break was nice, but I think all of us will be glad to get into our normal routine.
We've also got a tea party coming up for the Princess' birthday. She was able to celebrate yesterday with her cousins that share her birthday, but they live out of town. She wanted to spend some time with her friends, too, and we agreed. She and I are getting her menu and decorations together now that she's home.
In the meantime, I still have to prepare meals for us, so here's what I've got planned this week:
Ladies Night Out at church, family will have homemade pizza
Mexican pasta skillet, green chile cheese bread (recipe to come)
Hot dogs with West Virginia hot dog sauce
Lentil and rice burritos
Grilled red snapper, Mediterranean couscous
Flatbread wraps to use up leftovers
Roast and potatoes in the crockpot
