Menu 4/18- 4/24 (including Easter dinner menu)

Monday, April 18, 2011

This week is Spring Break, so my daughters have already claimed their days for making breakfasts.   I love a good hearty breakfast to start the day, but since we're not used to having them every day, I've decided to balance out the menu with some lighter fare for dinners.  Just typing up my Easter menu got me drooling. We don't really care for straight ham, so we make Chicken Cordon Blue each year.  I don't really do anything unique with it, but maybe I'll take pictures this year anyway to post here. 

I've got my posts scheduled for the week and I'm totally looking forward to some laid-back days with the kids spending lots of of time outside, getting some long ignored  household chores done, and just chilling around the house.   At this point, we're hoping to squeeze in a little trip to Philly at the end of the week, but that depends on whether my hubby can finish a work project by then.  We've lived only a couple hours away for over a decade, but still we've never been to Philadelphia.   If any of you have any insider tips, must-sees (or must-skips)  please feel free to advise me!  :)  Happy Easter!

I've always wanted to go to Philly. I hope it works out for you. It seems like such a fun place with lots to do and I love the history there.

I see the banana chocolate chip pancakes are back again:) I have that recipe printed out and and hanging on my fridge. One day soon I'm definitely indulging in them.

I'm going for traditional with a twist thsi year. Over here traditional for Easter would be lamb. I'm doing it Greek style, with herbs and garlic.

I just visited Philly in Dec! I loved it!!!
I loved the Ben Franklin Museum and Betsy Ross House.
Of course, Independence Hall!
I would go to the Independence Visitor center first and get all the maps and info and then try to see all you can!!!! There is so much to see and do!!!
