The Princess Takes a Big Trip AND the menu plan

The Princess and Big Daddy are on their way to Toledo this morning to meet with the allergist to start our Oral Immunotherapy process. With the Princess’s permission, I’ll be blogging our experience so others can understand the process and perhaps use it to decide if it’s right for their allergic family member.

I’ll be waiting around with baited breath for Big Daddy to call me after the appointment. I’m so excited for what the summer may bring to the Princess.

A little more than a week ago, the Princess, Littlebit, Baby Bee, Big Daddy and me participated in our town’s annual “day of giving”. The town comes out and helps get some things into shape that need it. The playground is spruced up, the historic cemetery is weeded and cleaned. This year, we teamed up with the Princess and Littlebit’s girl scout troupe to ready the garden Baby Bee’s preschool maintains. Afterwards, Big Daddy and our two big girls helped unload food at a church food pantry.

The Princess has always been a helper. I’m happy appointment day is here so she can breathe a little easier.

We are down to just a handful of days of school. I’m looking forward to summer, but the next few weeks are going to be crazy as we manage events and other fun things. I’m looking for quick and easy dinners this week and plan to use my crock pot even if it is going to be warm.

 

Monday Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice (as an aside, I won’t be using cream of chicken soup. We’re trying to reduce the amount of processed food we consume, so I’ll be making my own cream of something soup)

Tuesday Slow Cooked Sweet Pork over cilantro lime rice.

Wednesday Cajun Chicken Pasta

Thursday Guiness Brats, corn on the cob and sweet potato fries

Friday Bubble up pizza

Saturday TBD

Sunday Big Daddy is smoking a brisket and I don’t have words for how delicious that is and if you haven’t eaten Big Daddy’s brisket, you should feel a little bit sad.
