Menu: May 24-30

I hope you are all having a great Memorial Day. Today I've been to put flowers on my little brother's grave.
This wreath I made a few years ago to put at his headstone. It's been 11 years since he died. Typing that made me realize that its been longer since he died than he was alive. That makes me sad, so I'm moving on before my eyes start getting wet... We also stopped by my grandmother's grave and that was sad since my grandfather was with us... After taking my grandpa back home I headed back to a park with my mom to visit with some of her aunts and uncles. What do you usually do for Memorial Day?

Last Friday I posted about a date and posted a collage of birds that we saw.  I only had one guess about the birds listed... so I am tempted not to label these birds, but just in case some one is dying to know what they are:
1 - Gadwals
2 - Ruddy Duck
3 - Meadow Lark
4 - American White Pelican
5 - Readhead
6 - Cinnamon Teal
7 - Red Winged Blackbird
8 - Yellow Warbler (I agree it is a bad photo of this bird)
9 - Killdeer (on our first date we nicknamed this the oreo bird - if you see a front view you'd know why.)

Now finally on to the menu:

Monday: Confession: I forgot to make note of what we ate on this day and honestly cannot remember - I do not have a picture of it either (otherwise I'd know what we had...) Hubby cannot remember either - so it must have either been something we have a lot or something that did not stick out at all!

Tuesday: 5 cheese stuffed shells (Step By Step Pictures)

Wednesday: Spinach Pancakes (Final Photo Only)

Thursday: Mom made bbq sandwiches (no pictures)

Friday: Meatball Subs (Final Photo Only)

Saturday: Meatball Pizza - pizza sauce, bell pepper, onion, meatballs - chopped in half, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Recipe for Pizza Crust.

Sunday: Grilled Steak, Steamed Asparagus, Spinach & Mandarin Orange salad, and grilled corn on the cob. We had our Memorial Day dinner this day because my brother who was visiting had to leave earlier this morning to get back to work tonight. (Final Photo Only)

Vote for which recipe you want to see on Thursday!

    I love birding -- I did read your post the other day, just didn't guess ;-) We have a killdeer that lives near us; he's always singing his little heart out :)

  3. They all look great. But I too would be interested in the spinach pancakes.
