Last week we had some wonderful food, including a new recipe for Garlic Lime Shrimp, at Darren's specific request, and a repeat favorite dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding with Toffee Sauce at a gathering yesterday. Both were amazing and are well worth trying.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to our good friends, the Nigh's, who moved to Scotland the same time as us almost two years ago and have been incredible friends ever since. We are rejoicing with them in the new opportunities before them, but so sad to see them go. They will be sorely missed!
This week is about easy and comforting foods, as much as possible. It was a long, busy week last week, and will continue to be for the rest of the month. There are so many things happening this month to wrap up the school year for Joshua and, more so, to prepare for next school year -- for Joshua to start P1 (kindergarten) and for Abigail to start nursery (preschool).
Next weekend we will be taking our first trip to the Scottish Highlands and the west coast. We will be staying over night two nights and will be driving and sightseeing for the three days total. I am very excited, but have done so little planning so far. There is so much we want to cram into our three days, so I need to have all the details planned carefully.
Now on to the menu for the coming week.
- Monday -- Poppy seed chicken
- Tuesday -- Chicken Fajitas
- Wednesday -- Sausage and Bean Stew
- Thursday -- Beef Sesame Noodles
- Friday -- Mediterranean Chicken Pasta
- Saturday -- Crockpot Tamale Pie
