This past few weeks have been full of special dinners at our house.
Back to School.
Back to School
We’ve had one every week for the past four.
It’s not helping my diet much because no one picks poached chicken and broccoli for their back to school/birthday dinner. I don’t even pick that on an ordinary day. Yuck.
I’m happy that my family likes my cooking and that i like cooking for them and that they enjoy picking out meals for their special days. When they’re in school it’s hard, sometimes, to give a special day the real oomph it deserves, but a special dinner of their choosing helps a lot.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that your Mama makes you epic cupcakes. ;) I’ve been blogging about baking so frequently lately, I’m wondering if I’m not missing a passion or something. Stay tuned for more baking and blogging because I’ve bakes some more yummy things that I can’t wait to share with you.
We celebrated Littlebit’s Fifth Birthday with a dinner of her choosing.
Oven Fried Chicken and “Dirty” crock pot mac and cheese, veggies and Hi-Hat Cupcakes. Not familar? Stay tuned!
Unstuffed Pepper Bake*, garlic bread and salad
Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya*, corn bread and salad
(Yes, we eat a lot of salad. I can buy a large container of organic spring mix lettuce for 4.99 and it feeds us for lunch and dinner all week. I can’t even feed us frozen veggies for that price)
20 minute roasted tomato pasta, garlic bread and salad
Littlebit’s Fifth Birthday Party! Can’t wait to share it with you!
Something quick and easy. We’ve had a busy few weeks with another busy one to go. I like to “cook fresh” on Sundays (meaning, we don’t eat previously frozen meals). It keeps us interested and keeps the food from being borning.
*Previously frozen earlier in the month and part of Once a Month Mom’s August menu plan.
