Bring on the Birthday Cake

This is our annual big birthday week at the Sweet Pea home. Both R and G will celebrate their birthdays in the next week. Be still my heart. 4 and 7? Seems impossible, and yet, in so many ways, perfectly right.

No school today, so this morning I broke out the Play-doh (it was in one of the last boxes we unpacked over the holiday break), and the boys are experimenting with some birthday treat ideas.

R's making a cake:

While G works on the ice cream sundaes:

Not a bad way to spend a morning off from school, eh?

Our meals for the week:

Fish Tacos, Mango Jicama Salsa, Frijoles Refritos
Homemade Falafel, Hummus, Tzatziki, Kiwi
Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Gnocchi with Low Fat Alfredo and Vegetables and Roasted Butternut Squash
Indian Night--Dal, Roasted Chickpeas, Naan, Trader Joe's Indian Packet or two
Perfectly Simple Chicken Orzo Soup

One last thing--be sure to check out my new take on macaroni and cheese from last week's post. It's a great recipe that has won rave reviews in our home.

Have a sweet week,
