Our goals while hosting are to keep things as easy as possible, while still putting on a great menu. I don't like a lot of fuss, and prefer to spend the time together, relaxing & enjoying. We also have big happy hours each evening, with special drinks for the kids, wine/beer for the adults, veggies & dip, cheese & crackers, etc.
Here's what we will be eating for dinners:
- Monday - salmon & salad
- Tuesday - pizzas & salad
- Wednesday - crockpot carnitas + taquitos, chips & salsa
- Thursday - burgers & hot dogs + potato salad
- Friday - leftovers
- Saturday - driving home, so either something on the road, or something out of the freezer. Dependent upon our arrival time.
- Sunday - tbd. I can't remember what we have in the freezer at home.
For breakfasts, we will have eggs, fruit & bagels. We'll make up a big pan of scrambled eggs in the morning, or the kids usually prefer breakfast sandwiches with my sister's homemade sausage patties. For lunches, we will put out sandwich fixings, chips, fruit, etc. We'll switch it up & do taco soup in the crockpot one day for lunch, along with the carnitas sides (chips, salsa, guac, etc). There will also be leftovers. We won't plan much for desserts, although Nick did mention that he wants to make ice cream sandwiches, so those will probably happen as well.
What about you? What will you be serving this week?
