Today is Harrison’s 7th birthday! We had his main birthday celebrations on the weekend when my parents came up to stay, but tonight he wants either an ‘order’ (takeaway – probably Chinese) or a McDonalds for his birthday tea – he hasn’t quite made up his mind yet.
We’ve been loving this hot, sunny weather that we’ve had lately (I’ve blatantly gone and cursed that now, haven’t I?) but it’s made meal times quite difficult. None of us want to eat anything particularly heavy, and trying to get the kids in long enough from the park or garden to sit down and eat is hard work. This week’s meals are all based on the assumption that the good weather is continuing, so it’s all quite light.
Lemon and garlic chicken wraps with salad and wedges
Picky tea – sandwiches, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, crisps, veggie sticks etc
Hot dogs, chips and corn on the cob
Tuna quesadillas with salad
Pork chops, roast potatoes and vegetables
