Meal Think


I bought another Bountiful Basket this week.  It's been a while since I sat down to plan the meals around a basket and I have to say that I am pretty excited with this week's menu choices.

I thought I would share, especially since a friend bought a basket this week too.  (Audrey, this post is for you.)

Butter Lettuce - Lettuce wraps.  I am thinking this recipe looks easy, especially if I can make the hoisin sauce from scratch.

Sweet Potato and Tomatoes - African Stew.

Orange Cauliflower - Green Curry with cauliflower over rice.

Happy Birthday Kimball!



It's hard for me to believe that I have a five year old.  But it't true.  Well, technically it won't be until 4am tomorrow, but we celebrated Kimball's birthday yesterday.

The biggest problem I had planning this party was that Kimball could't decide what kind of party he wanted as you can see by the invitation below.
As it turns out, finding party supplies for a five themed party is not only expensive but, well, impossible.  It mostly turned into a pirate themed party because it's easy to find pirate party supplies.

In order to prevent Kimball from changing his mind again, the only show I let him and Stan watch all week was Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  It worked out.


We threw in some Angry Birds stuff for good measure.  The cake was easy since I talked him into cupcakes.  I think they turned out cute with the little treasure chests on top.


It's always exhausting to put on a party, but the kids had a blast and we made some fun memories.  Thanks to all who helped (Mom) and all who could come celebrate with us.
