I love having these Raw Cookie Dough Bites from The Nourishing Home on hand for snacking.
We are very excited to have two different families coming to stay at our house – the first for a few days beginning this weekend, and another next week, staying for three whole weeks!! The boys are looking forward to playing with their buddies, and I am looking forward to catching up with great friends I don’t get to see nearly often enough.
So that I can enjoy our visits and not spend all my time in the kitchen, I’ve tried to get a little bit of cooking done ahead of time. Here’s what I’ve made (or plan to make tomorrow):
- Sloppy Joes (made and in the freezer)
- Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (made and in the freezer)
- Raw Cookie Dough Bites (made and in the fridge)
- Whole Wheat Quick Mix (on my list for tomorrow)
- Cheesy Salsa Enchiladas (on my list for tomorrow)
One of our guests this weekend needs to eat gluten free, and then the following week, one guest has a peanut allergy. As long as I don’t get my weeks/guests mixed up, we should be just fine. :)
Our local Farmer’s Market hasn’t had much to offer yet in the way of fresh produce. We’ll get there, it’s just still early in Nebraska! Thursday night, I was able to get some fresh greens and two heads of broccoli. We ate all of the broccoli at lunch today. So good!
I got stocked up at the store tonight on loads of fresh fruits and a few veggies, plus a few treats to share with our guests. I love all the fresh produce available this time of year. (And no, not all of it was organic. This is all I have available to me right now, so I’m cheerfully going for it!) Hopefully by the time company comes, we’ll still have some of this available. I mean, when there are fresh peaches in the house…
What are some of your favorite meals to feed guests?
