You may have already figured this out…but the ingredients from the picture in last week’s menu post were for homemade marshmallows, hot chocolate on a stick and frosting for my girls’ birthday cakes! Sanjana was the closest guess, “a chocolate marshmallow concoction.” That was almost exactly right! Good job!
I have a confession to make. I didn’t make dinner once last week. It’s downright scandalous, I tell ya. In my defense, it was the busiest week of the year for me. I was up until all hours every night trying to get everything done for birthdays, Christmas, work, and oodles of school activities. I was able to stay on top of all of that, but our dinners suffered considerably. Something had to give. And we survived. And the girls were beyond happy with their birthdays, and that’s what matters most!
- Paninis of some sort
- Nachos (I know, fancy)
- Chinese Take-Out (a Maynard Christmas Eve tradition!)
- Swedish Meatballs (this is just one dish that was always part of my family’s Swedish Christmas Eve feast…maybe one day I’ll gear myself up for the entire dinner! The Swedish ham is out of this world.)
- Boiled red potatoes
I’m excited to see your menus this week – I love it when there are holidays involved and I get to see your fun traditions and recipes!
Oh, and be sure to check back in this week…I can’t wait to share Cate’s birthday cake with you. Anna’s cake may have been cute, but Cate’s was cute and beyond delicious. The frosting, oh, the frosting. It was a new recipe for me and I’m completely in love. You’ll love it too. But I’m not sharing it quite yet. First, you have to share your menu for the week!
