Whats for dinner?
Tomorrow is my daughters last day of school, and I have offered to bring a fruit salad for 20. I will make it tomorrow morning, though I might do some prep tonight. I wanted to go with something tropical and something kids will like - so I'm thinking pineapple (maybe I'll even serve it in the pineapple shells, I have 2 so that would make 2 pineapple bowls), kiwi, banana, mango -couldn't find a decent papaya or any starfruit - have some berries, grapes, etc. Tonight its just me and Jess so I think I'll do something super easy - maybe english muffin pizzas? I don't think she has ever had this and she loves my homemade pizza -or maybe quesadillas?
Nervous about Saturday, we are having friends for dinner and normally this is right up my alley, loving to cook as I do. This Saturday Jess has a bday party to attend from 2-4, and also one on Friday. My guests are arriving at 5:30 on Saturday - so I need a make ahead dinner I can pull together when I get back from the birthday party - thinking maybe a lasagna, salad, garlic bread combo and my double roasted stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer- still not sure...
At anyrate, for tonight I made english muffin pizzas - super easy, lightly toast muffins, spread with tomato sauce, sprinkle with some oregano, about 1 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese, some canned mushrooms, fresh basil, olive oil and broil until cheese melts. I served these with some extra canned mushrooms (because my daughter loves these) and some sugar snap peas.
