My son is off to Boy Scout Camp this week (back on Saturday – the girls are counting down), which means at our house it is Princess Power week.  All girly, all the time.  We have already watched the Felicity American Girl movie, made heart shaped meatballs (yeah, nothing says “girly” like heart shaped meat) and have co-ordinated pajamas for the week (the girls, not me).  We will also be getting ready this week for nine visitors for the weekend:  Aunty Cheryl and the gang.  My kids can’t wait to see the cousins!  This means I have my menu planned out for the weekend also, because with 16-17 people around here, I better have a plan!

The girls have planned this week’s menu and they are all about cute food, and my older daughter getting “cooking lessons” from mommy.  Head over to Menu Plan Monday and the Gluten Free Menu Swap hosted this week by  Asparagus Thin  for less glitter-oriented meals!  Have a great week!
