that being said, i do hope you guys are all happy on that day! phil's parents are coming into town sunday night and leaving tuesday morning, so we are having both my parents and his parents here for dinner sunday evening! then we are just entertaining phil's parents on memorial day. there has been big talk of a battlefield visit : ) phil's dad really loves to visit old battlefields so that may be in the plans, who knows? anyway, i thought i would just share the fun menu with you that we came up with for this weekend. it sounds so yummy!
the salad will be made minus the chicken and it can be found here. i'll be making beef stuffed peppers found here minus the rice because i wanted that separate. the rice recipe is this one here that we love and have made before. it's easy and yummy. and then we'll be having sundaes for dessert. the one pictured is here. i just liked this picture, but i'm just serving ours with fudge, strawberry and other random toppings.
monday we're having brunch. yummmm, i love brunch. and i'm making one of my all time favorite yummy brunch foods.
the casserole is this one that i looove. has to be so bad for a person, but it is seriously hard to care while eating. the only difference i make is i use maple flavored sausage in it... yummmm. fruit salad to go with since it makes you feel a little better that you just ate a cheesy, meaty, potatoey goodness. picture via, and of course some yummy raspberry lemonade picture via.
monday dinner i'll be making
chucks favorite mac and cheese which i will be trying for the first time. it looks absolutely wonderful though. then some good ol' fashioned beef franks via and apple crumb pie for dessert. this will be my second pie crust attempt, that is why we are having easy to make food. in case i mess up the pie, at least we'll have good food haha.
when i plan menus it's about making food that seems dificult to make when you're eating, but in reality isn't very difficult or stressful. except the pie. i am a little nervous about that haha. but that's also why it only has one crust : ) i think it's important to have good food, but also something that'll be easy and quick, and preferably something you can make ahead of time. i'm excited to be a hostess for this weekend! what are y'alls plans for memorial day?
