Last week was a crazy week. We were preparing for our soup supper - lots of cleaning and rearranging. And then I fell on Tuesday. Hurt my back. I was out of commission for two whole days, then on very light duty until the party on Saturday. Talk about frustrating! I'll post more about that later.
But a huge shout out to my husband and children who picked up the slack and worked diligently to make sure everything went off without a hitch. (I knew having kids would one day pay off!) We ended up with 42 people in this house, including us. Sixteen of those were children. We had a dozen different soups, tons of bread, and lots of yummy desserts. Everyone sampled to their hearts' content. It was wonderful!
Unfortunately I kept busy most of the time and didn't get any pictures. I'll ask around to see if any of our friends did.
Now on to this week's menu plan:
Sausage tortellini soup (I know, you'd think after all the soup on Saturday we'd be sick of soup. We aren't.)
Steak bites, garlic roasted potatoes
One pot cheesy smoked sausage pasta, green beans
Roast beef with potatoes and carrots
Honey lime chicken bites, Parmesan couscous
Brunswick stew, homemade French bread
