Ups & Downs

DH and I have spent the last couple weeks trying to get pictures organized (and off the furniture in the guest room, and the floor, etc) and hung on the walls. All this in anticipation of our first over night guest, younger daughter from the frozen Great Lakes state.

Well, Tuesday night our bubble was burst when younger daughter called me to relate the details of the accident she had that evening. We are very grateful nobody was injured, but it kills her trip here for the week of Thanksgiving.

So, younger daughter, if you are reading here is the menu for next week:

Sunday - Vegetable Lasagna.

Monday - Sweet and sour meatballs. This is a huge favorite in our house.

Tuesday - not planned. Probably would have been some leftovers, or dinner out.

Wednesday - Pancake dinner - my kids and DH love my chocolate chip pancakes.

Thursday - Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & green bean casserole. Shrimp cocktail appetizers. Dessert to be determined. Rumor has it that we might have DQ ice cream cake.

Friday - Turkey pot pie - homemade from leftovers from Thursday's dinner.

Saturday - To be determined.

I rarely cook that often, but since the whole family was gonna be around for a week, thought we'd get some nice family dinners out of it.

Maybe Christmas ...
