Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things

by Lora on June 1, 2010 at 2:13 am

My but it’s been a long time since I posted here! It has been for a good reason, though. In January my oldest daughter became engaged and April 24th, she was married. Just yesterday we found out she is expecting and we are all rejoicing with her & Ryan.

Since the wedding has been over we have changed the way that we do our menus. I have had the younger girls (14-17) planning the menu for a week. They are given a budget, find the recipes and then we shop together. They have really enjoyed planning their menus. They spend hours pouring over cookbooks and looking online for recipes. They are also responsible for preparing the meals and snacks.

I have posted Caroline’s menu below, she is 14. If you would like to get other great menu ideas, be sure and drop by Laura’s site.

If you’d like to read my thoughts on the wedding please drop by My Simple Life and check it out here and here.
