So, I decided to take pictures of our dinner instead. I was quite proud, as this was a total experiment and the big girls LOVED it! Here goes...
First, I baked some baguettes. (I found a simple recipe online.) The girls waited anxiously, checking the oven often. What is it about the smell of fresh-baked bread?
While the bread was baking, I stir-fried some zucchini with olive oil, dill, and garlic salt. I also mixed some lemon juice, mayo, and garlic for the spread.
Once the bread was done, I sliced it in half for open-faced sandwiches. I spread the mayo mixture, topped with the zucchini and grated cheddar, (and turkey for the girls), and broiled them for 3 minutes to melt the cheese.
What a fun dinner! It was pretty simple, and the girls said they loved it. Can't beat that!
Littlest turkey threw everything on the ground except the bread. She is a carboholic, and it's my fault. I'll need to do something about that!
And, for the "surprises" part of this post, I went to Old Navy yesterday with just Sierra, and scored a bunch of adorable girls clothes on clearance... plus I had a 30% off coupon and a $50 gift card. In all, I bought each girl 5 items, plus 6 items for myself, and spent $25. This morning, I surprised the girls with their clothes as a "happy spring" gift. They were ecstatic; my girls love clothes!
Happy Spring to you!
