Weekly Menus: Week of 3/18/2012 (with Snack Week Bonus)

Gentle Readers, what a week it has been. First, apologies for the lateness of the post, between birthday preparations for the Eldest (raising a foodie is NOT easy during this time of year) and recovering from an ill-timed stomach bug, The Practical Cook has had her hands full. Special thanks to The Practical Cook’s Mom, who stepped in and ran the show. However painful it was personally, it does make for excellent blog fodder.

Lessons learned this week:

1. Keep the house stocked with some bland things, crackers, soup, bread, etc.

2. Teach your children how to prepare their own breakfast. You never know when you’ll need to ask them to do it.

3. Have a back-up plan. Always, always have Plans B through D in mind.

So happy birthday Eldest! The Birthday Carrot Cake is baked, and we’re getting ready to frost it for your decorating pleasure. Food is that much more fun for me because of you.
