I am excited for a couple of baking projects this week. One is secret… shhh. But the other is not: I was tapped to make the Valentine’s Day cake for my second grader’s class celebration. He decided we should make a chocolate chip cookie cake, which he’ll help me decorate. I do love when he helps me in the kitchen, so I am looking forward to that time together on Wednesday.
Edited to add: I can’t seem to keep my days or weeks straight recently. The cookie cake is for NEXT week, not this one. So I have less baking to do than I thought I would. Darn!
Monday: Crock-Pot beef short ribs, roasted Brussels sprouts, salad (leftover), challah
Tuesday: French bread pizzas, raw carrots, celery, and pepper strips
Thursday: Penne & Baked Meatballs, garlic bread, garden salad, steamed green beans
Friday: Roasted rolled turkey breast, sauteed spinach & garlic, roasted carrots, challah
Saturday: Eat out
Sunday: Grilled rib eye steaks, Citrus & Garlic Grilled Broccoli, bulgur with sauteed onions
