We will be eating at our friends' house tonight. It is James's birthday so she is making spaghetti. Susan and Tom ordered an ice cream cake. We are having a little theme party for him, and since he just turned 5 again, I know he will love it (so will we!). In case he reads this, I don't want to give away the theme, but I will say that we will be watching the new Avengers movie after dinner.

Kylie, your meat pie sounds delicious - I have never combined crusts before but that makes sense together! What kind of meat did you use? Do you use veggies in your pies? Sorry for all the questions!

I am not sure what I am making for our early dinner - it will probably be fairly light. DH is taking the rest of the chicken fingers from yesterday to work (not in the bus today so he can heat them up). He is so happy when there is something he loves that is safe for him to eat - warms my heart to see him dig in!

I am thinking some form of salad but that is as far as I have got. I have two hours!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

That meat pie does sound good. It makes me want to make a cottage pie with mashed taters on top. Easier for me than pastry or working with dough.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

The weather is nicely warm so we're going to have grilled hamburgers, broiled/baked hash brown patties, 3-bean salad, iced tea and German chocolate pecan pie bars for dessert. That should do it.
