It was a very busy day at our house today. Mommy was a baking fool, the kids had lots of things going on and Daddy had his last meeting at church for the RCIA program with Uncle Greg. (Congrats again, Greg!) Mommy made Rice Krispie Treats for Daddy's meeting and cupcakes for Molly's little sister's preschool snack. Molly's little brother had his 2 year check up today and he's a very healthy little boy. Tomorrow is Molly's little sister's un-Birthday at school. Molly is big time into reading and now we know more about elephants and sharks that we ever did. So, with all of the chaos, we decided to get some Little Caesar's Pizza for dinner.
ps - I'm also including a picture (see below) of the cupcakes for Beach Day at Molly's little sister's preschool tomorrow. They were really fun!
Our vegetable side is sugar snap peas. We found a very large bag of these at Sam's Club and they are so delicious.
Our fruit side is red grapes. A re-play of some of the fruit from today's lunch. They are very juicy and sweet.
Finally, our dairy/dessert is Molly's favorite Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla yogurt. But, we've added a spoonful of strawberry rhubarb compote. We grow the rhubarb in our back yard and make this compote to go with anything from pancakes to yogurt.
As promised, here is a photo of the Beach Day cupcakes. They are yellow cake with cream cheese frosting. The "sand" is crushed graham crackers. The beach towels are Fruit By The Foot. We did a little frosting accessorizing on some Teddy Grahams for some fun in the sun style. Finally, we added a drink umbrella for extra SPF protection.
