    An Easter picnic sounds really fun! I’d keep it simple because you are traveling…..maybe ham sandwiches on Easter bread, pineapple salad, and dyed Easter eggs. Chocolate bunnies for dessert :-)!

    Mon: Business travel
    Tue: Business travel
    Wed: Western omelets
    Thu: Grilled chicken Caesar salad
    Fri: Tuna melts, celery sticks & apple slices
    Sat: Out before attending a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar. A favorite of ours!

  3. 3

    We’re moving and meals are difficult to plan right now since half of my kitchen is in storage, a quarter of it is here, and a quarter of it seems to be missing… maybe it’s still at the old house. LOL I’m going to have to come up with new dinner ideas because travel time from work will be longer and I won’t be getting home until around 7:30pm – ideas are welcome!

    Tonight we’re having spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread. The rest of the week is a mystery.
