He’s been wanting to go on a picnic for weeks. He’s always loved a picnic. I’ve been putting it off because it was too hot, too rainy, then too wet. I was too tired, too busy, and too “Type-A”. By too Type-A, I mean that I needed to plan a picnic. The perfect picnic. The picnic they will always remember. Then I snapped out of it and realized the picnic they will always remember is the one we actually go on. Not the perfectly planned one in my head.
Maddie had choir practice this morning and as soon as we got home I quickly rounded up a few things: canned soft drinks for everyone, the cookies from the cookie jar, and a roll of paper towels. On the way out the door, I grabbed my camera. We headed for the park and bought a couple of pizzas as we drove through town.
In other news, this week was finals week for the college freshman and he turned 19 on Tuesday. We celebrated his birthday last weekend. You can read about it here. In lieu of a cake I made the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar.
You can find this recipe and many others at Kevin and Amanda’s great blog.
On Tuesday we didn’t have another party but he did request Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars. I’m sure it helped him study:-) These things are delicious. You can find the recipe here.
We’ve had a delicious week. Any recipes you’d like to share?
