Whew, the end of the school year is almost near for us. June is killing me, between end of year activities and birthdays I’m definitely feeling the strain. For someone who loves to organize as much as I do I’ve come to the realization that what I don’t enjoy is organizing events. Nope, I’d much rather let someone else take the reins and just boss me around :)
Thank goodness in the mist of all this, I don’t have to worry about what I’m cooking each night. It’s times like these I’m especially grateful for menu planning and how it alleviates a whole area of stress for me. And even though my menu plan didn’t go according to plan once again last week, it all worked itself out in the end. For instance, I moved the Crockpot Italian Meatballs to Tuesday night and was so surprised by the amount of sauce it made I was able to use it for a spaghetti dinner the following night. Only one recipe didn’t get made but I’m just going to carried it forward to this week. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
Okay rhubarb fans, I have an abundance (that might be the understatement of the year) in my house right now from the rhubarb fairies, otherwise known as the in-laws. I’ve already made another Strawberry Rhubarb Pie (which was sooo yummy!) but I’m looking for some other ideas. If you’ve got any recipes you’d like to share please please do so!! Some of you asked last time what rhubarb is and while I don’t know how to explain it, this is what the edible stalks look like after they’ve been broken off from the big leafy plants they belong to.
So here’s what we’ll be eating this week. How about you?

Tuesday: Busy night ~ Bacon-Tomato Bagels Melts
