Menu Plan–July 29

Thanks for all your lovely wishes for our anniversary yesterday!  We had a special day – starting off with Frog Prince’s whole wheat blueberry pancakes. 


The weather was amazing, so we opted to go for a long walk at a local park, and then played cribbage together in the afternoon before taking in the first night of Olympic action parked in front of our TV.


Our anniversary tradition is to re-create our wedding dinner and it’s a tradition I love.  We enjoyed a homemade version of the pasta dish served at our wedding, coupled with delicious garlic breadsticks.  This year, I added mushrooms & broccoli to the chicken dish, and it was superb. 


We topped off the night with a re-created wedding cake!  Just the top tier though, my cake decorating skills are not superb. 


{What you might not be able to see so well is the cake almost slipped off the plate while we were trying to capture this photo!!}

Do you have any food traditions for your anniversary or special events in your family?

In addition to our 5th anniversary eats, we also enjoyed {to see the recipe, click on a photo}:

This week, we are having a garage sale… and our garden is producing yummy veggies!  We even made our first batch of pickles this week.  Spaghetti sauce is not too far behind.  Meals this week will have lots of garden produce, and will also use our crockpot to make meals easy during the garage sale.

  1. Looks like a yummy menu! Congrats on 5 years! I think your anniversary traditions are so lovely. My husband and I don't really have a certain food traditions for our anniversary. This year we went out to eat lunch, spent the afternoon at the beach and watched a movie at home that night. I do always sign every card I give him the same way..."All my love, Janet" because I had his ring engraved with the words "All my love." and our wedding date. Have a great week.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
