Julianna's birthday week which is a very, very big deal to my little girl. Eleven! Wow! I'm afraid I officially have no babies left. We're all very excited that Rebekah's coming home to help celebrate Julianna's birthday, and, I have to say, there's going to be lots of good eats around here.
Here's what's in the works for the week:
Monday (gluten free!): Plum chicken, rice, sugar snap peas--I cut up the chicken into bite size pieces, use breasts instead of thighs because that's what the picky eaters I live with
Tuesday: Pork chops, Tyler Florence's roasted acorn squash, Brussels sprouts (Try the acorn squash. Delicious! Brushed with Amaretto, brown sugar, butter, filled with little crushed Italian cookies, they are wonderful.)
Wednesday: Wedding Soup and Italian bread (All right, I know I'm gushing, but seriously this week is full of things that if you're not making you should give a try. The wedding soup by Ina Garten is awesome, the star of the soup is the meatballs made from ground chicken and chicken Italian sausage. Really, really good.)
Thursday (Halloween): Grilled cheese/peanut butter, apples, cut up veggies
Friday (Julianna's birthday!!!) Ina Garten's Chicken Pot Pie
Saturday lunch w/family: Sloppy Joes, Veggie Sloppy Joes, Tater Tots, cut up veggies, apples, Mint Chocolate Chip Ice cream cake
Saturday dinner: Beef Stew, biscuits
Sunday lunch: Cracker Barrel
Sunday dinner: Pita pizzas
Welp, that's our week. It's going to be full, full, full of good things. Hoping Jacob and Julianna have lots of fun trick or treating Thursday night and that Julianna's birthday makes her heart happy. Have a good week!
