Well, we are all back from a lovely weekend at Camp Sunshine. It is a camp for kids with Cancer and their families. It was Fall Family Weekend, and it was actually our first time ever going. We had wanted to go many times before, but it just never seemed to work out with timing of treatments, E being sick, etc. But now we were able to go and enjoy a great weekend together as a family. Friday night on the way out of time, we stopped at a cute place in downtown Lawrencville called Local Republic http://www.thelocalrepublic.com/. One of my former co-workers and her husband owns the place, and it is just amazing. It is the first time we have been there, but we will def. go back! No pics, but it was beautiful and delicious.I had the Lamb Belly which was reduced in red wine with roasted veggies & grits. Oh and I also ordered a side of Pimento Cheese Grits. Pimento Cheese Grits. Yes. That is what I said… The girls tried both and loved them, esp. the lamb belly! They has a hamburger and bacon mac and cheese. BACON Mac and Cheese! SQUEAL!!!! My hubby had their Steak & Cheese sandwich. He gobbled it up…I managed to get a bite…YUM! The staff were all lovely and kind, and my daughters just loved the place.
At camp we had so much food. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack…Pretty tasty! I never went to camp as a kid, but I think my girls will be summer camp kids. You do toms of activities that make you hungry all day, so you just end up eating and liking whatever they serve you. My favorite was the yogurt and granola at breakfast, and taco night!
On to the meal planning:
Sunday- As I type this, I am making homemade tomato sauce for my spaghetti and mushroom and meat sauce. Making plenty of sauce to put in the freezer for leftovers
Monday- Hot dogs and baked beans
Tuesday- Leftover Creamy Tomato Chicken Pasta- We did not get to it last week.
Wednesday- Chicken and rice with leftover Ragu sauce from the freezer
