Check out my Birthday Bash Giveaways links posted at the top of the page! I have three currently running and I'll be announcing a couple more this week!
I got out of bed early this morning and got some cleaning done, ran some errands and prepared for lunch with my family. My parents, sister-in-law and nieces arrived with a huge tray of lasagna, along with a big bowl of Caesar Salad, loaf of crusty bread, and of course, a birthday cake. I didn't have to do a thing!
I knew we were expecting friends over at some point during the day, and wasn't sure if it would overlap with my family's visit, so I threw some frozen meatballs into some sauce just to make sure there would be enough food to go around!
Turns out that the lasagna itself would have been more than enough for everyone! Our friends ended up arriving later in the day, more near dinner time. My family, left us the leftover lasagna and along with meatball sandwiches made a wonderful meal for our teenage nephews!
I sit here now, recovering from the busy day. Finishing up my menu plan before getting myself to bed. I'm still dealing with a bit of a cold and it will be really nice to get to bed early for a change!
Here's what's planned for this week:
- Monday: Pepper Steak, Egg Rolls, Crab Rangoons, steamed broccoli
- Tuesday: Leftover Beef Stew, salad, biscuits
- Wednesday: Meatballs, spaghetti, garlic bread, salad
- Thursday: Potato Soup, bread, salad
- We didn't get to this last week, so I'm carrying it over into this week's menu.
- Friday: Tuna Casserole, biscuits, salad
- This is also being carried over from last week. (recipe will be shared soon.)
- Saturday: take out
- Sunday: leftover buffet
That about wraps it up for this post! I need to get myself to bed, it's already a bit later than I planned on getting to bed....then add in the Daylight Savings Time.....boy, am I tired! Goodnight, friends!
