Okay, so while I was blathering about all the stuff happening, I forgot to reveal the reality about May and June for us. It is one LONG celebration. Mr. Little Sis’ birthday was at the beginning of May. Something happened in the middle, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was – oh right, Mother’s Day. Then we had one nephew graduating, one sister’s birthday (yes,, that’s Bigg Sis)… oh, and wait a freaking minute! Did I mention she moved. She moved, she moved she moved. Sorry sorry Tennessee, but now my Bigg Sis is right near MEEEEEEE!
So you’d think that was enough celebrating, right?! But wait, there’s more! This weekend Mr. Little Sis and I will celebrate 16 years of marriage (at Ms. Picky Pants’ dance recital). and then Father’s Day and then my birthday and then the last day of school party, and then we’re going on a trip and then it’s the fourth of July (which we spend with friends). I feel like I’m exhaling crepe paper right now. Happy Everything!
Monday: Indian Summer Cold Sesame Noodles, spinach and cut veggies
Wednesday: Lentil Casserole (a brief cold spell predicted this week says I may be able to appease Ms. Picky Pants with this very warm and hearty dish one more time this year), sautéed green beans, pickled carrots
Thursday: Strawberry Kale Salad with Almonds, crusty wheat bread
Friday: Homemade PIzza, cut veggies
Saturday: Dairy Free Womanicotti, bruschetta, green salad

Here’s hoping your upcoming week is full of real food, loving family and true friends… oh, and a celebration or two if that’s your thing! Eat well, be well friends!
