Our Week of Meals:

This past week was my favorite week of every year here at camp...our first full week with no meals in the dining hall! Having dinner around our table is one of my very favorite things and this week we ate five dinners in a row in our home.

We ate:
Ginger Lime Stir-Fry - Two past summer staffers joined us for dinner this night. It was a random dinner invitation so we laughed about how all I had to offer them was literally in the one pan in front of them. They obviously did not mind but it did look a little meager to just have one pan of food on the table with no sides.
Maple Mustard Chicken and Rice
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Taco's - I have made this recipe a million times but this was the first time I made the guacamole. And it was a game changer and now I don't think I will ever be able to make them again without the guacamole. Also, have you all tired the heat and serve tortillas that are in the refrigerator section? They are also a game changer. So much better than the ones on the shelf and so much less work than homemade.
Sloppy Joe's - made on these hamburger buns. Something therapeutic about making homemade bread. It really is not that hard and they really do taste so much better.

We also enjoyed ice-cream nearly every night this week. Oops.
