Hi friends! Wow, what a busy week it's going to be. But it's busy because of really fun things!
We have soccer every day this week, Monday through Saturday, but then my older son's season will be over. Plus we have other fun things going on, the most of exciting of which is that my son is turning eight! This means a friend birthday party, treats to go to his classroom, special birthday meals, and most exciting of all is that he'll be baptized on Sunday. He's been inviting all of his friends and is super nervous about all the attention he will get. It'll be neat. And because of the baptism, Grandma and Grandpa are coming for a visit!
All of these exciting things call for some yummy food, right? I sat my son down and tried to get him to tell me what he treat or meal he wanted for every occasion. He was happy with anything that I suggested. So, I guess I'll be making something chocolatey...
Anyway...this week calls for some serious meal planning. We have something at 5:30 (or earlier) every night this week, so that means that dinner has to be prepped beforehand or we just eat cereal (which is fine too).
Here we go:
Tuesday: broccoli cheese soup and fluffy wheat bread
Wednesday: broiled parmesan tilapia, orzo or quinoa, veggies
Thursday: orange chicken, steamed rice, veggies
Friday: white chicken chili
Saturday: easy night
Sunday: perfect pot roast
I also need to make some kind of a 8 shaped birthday cake (you can see the one I made for my daughter here), a treat for the friend birthday party, and refreshments for the baptism. I think it's going to be a chocolatey week. Yum!
What are you making this week?
