Catching up!

So, we've been slackers. Friday night we had a meeting with someone in regards to consigning some of our merchandise so we took Lee out for his birthday dinner that night. He chose Chinese. Yesterday we had an amazing amount of running around to do so we stopped at Wendy's for a late lunch, we also had a free meal from them. Since we had a late lunch we didn't eat dinner, I know, bad bad bad.

Today we've been not so lazy and had 3 amazing meals. For breakfast I made us dippy eggs, toast and chipped beef. We didn't think we'd end up eating lunch because of the late, filling breakfast, but alas, we were hungry.

I made up a quick pizza dough and made pizza for the 3 of us. It must have been a hit because Mindi, who doesn't like pizza, ate it, and liked it!

 For dinner we had DD Meatball Soup. This was also really good. It had carrot puree and sweet potato puree in it. Once again, you'd never know that anything extra was in it.

DD Chicken & Dumplings

This is the first recipe that was tried out from our new cookbook, Double Delicious.  And it will for sure be used many more times.  The littles cleaned their plates, there are no leftovers and we all have extremely happy bellies! 
I would have like to have the dumplings a little browner but none the less they were still yummy!
The recipe was extremely easy to follow.  Even to make the dumplings was super quick and easy.  Much easier than some other recipes I've followed.
We added a side of green beans just so the littles 'think' they are having to eat their veggies :)  But there weren't any complaints about having to eat them. 

DD mac & cheese with ham

We usually make a ham and ziti meal but decided to try mixing 2 meals together.  It actually turned out better doing it this way.  Instead of the cheese clumping together like it did with the ham and ziti it was very smooth with the DD recipe. 
This was another hit with the whole family.  Clean plates and no leftovers.  It was so much better mixing these 2 recipes.

Menu Day

Today was menu and store list day.  The second delicious book came yesterday so it was prefect timing.  Most of the meals will be from this book.  Not included in the meals will be DD2 Whoopie Pies per the request of Rian and banana bread for Lee.  I doubt it will be from the DD menu book though.  My other recipe was better, IMO.
