Got your grocery list pad ready? I always find, if I make the list immediately after I put together my menu, I’m more likely to actually stick to it! This coming week will be pretty busy in our household because it will be the one in between Baby E’s birthday party and H’s birthday party! Have you ever had a circus elephant themed party for about 20 almost immediately followed by a princess, sparkle pool party for about 30? I’m glad I wasn’t convinced by Mathlete to hold them both in one weekend! (Sorry Mom and Dad for all the travel though.)
Here we go with some food fun!

Sunday: We’re having pita bread at the birthday party. Peanut Sauced Chicken Pitas will be perfect to use up the leftovers.
Monday: After party foods galore, I think I’ll try and throw in some fresh fish with Citrus Seared Tuna and Noodles.
Tuesday: In a perfect world, I’d have plenty of energy to make it through the week and cook all my meals. We’ve pretty much established that I am far from perfect so it is freezer diving I go. Thanks to my meal swap, I can make Honey Sesame Chicken Skewers and skip the take-out!

Wednesday: Freezer to the rescue again with some Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast.
Thursday: I know H will be getting antsy about this time of the week for her upcoming birthday party so I plan to distract her with a project: Homemade Pizza Rolls.
Friday: The parents will be back in town (YAY) so a Chicken Stir Fry is a great, quick meal to feed all of us.
Saturday: Party time! I won’t even begin to pretend we won’t all be chowing down on pizza and other random party foods. But, I didn’t want this WTCW to be incomplete and I could potentially see myself attempting to put together a real meal like Hamburger Soup. Obviously, though, I’d tweak it so I could throw it in the crockpot for fix-it/forget-it type thing. (mental (blog) note: this would make a great swap recipe)
Check us out next week for WTCW because (fingers crossed) we’ll have a link party for you to come in a share what you cooked for Wednesday!
Oh, and don’t forget, today is the last day to try and win free stuff!
