Delicious Dinner Ideas

Happy Monday!  It’s been a busy, beautiful, whirlwind of a week/weekend at my house!  My parents are staying with us while my dad has chemo, my soon to be daughter-in-love had her bridal shower this weekend, and my extended family came over Sunday to celebrate a BIG birthday for my mother (which “one” is an unlisted number)!  😛
For the bridal shower I made up fruit salad for 70, and then of course didn’t take any pretty pictures of it…  😛

We still have some leftovers in the refrigerator for a couple of meals!  🙂
