Week 121 Menu

Cate and I attended a 2-year-old’s Curious George birthday party yesterday.  Everything was adorable, including the cake, which I will share with you later this week.  This was one of my favorite parts about the food spread…bananas and chips, side by side. Any guesses which snack was more popular? 😉

    It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a meal plan….lately we’ve been flying by the seat of our pants. It feels good to plan something again! Thanks Jane! P.S. I used Pingg to invite family to a pool party. Thanks for that tip too!

  16. Renee, not Okinawa, but Zama(non-military). It’s hit the main islands, and since tortillas are prohibitively expensive, we opt for taco rice for our Mexican fix. Glad to bring back the memories!
