I did make one last minute change to make this week's menu plans work better for us. I wish I had thought of it sooner to let you know about it, but alas, my brain is slow these days.
Back when we were looking for ideas and I came across the recipe for Tuoni e Lampi (Thunder and Lightning) it sounded fun to say and looked simple enough to prepare (which Jessica confirmed). But I completely forgot that chickpeas are the same thing as garbanzo beans which my husband can't eat. Ugh! Since it's a recipe I haven't tried before, I didn't want to ruin it by substituting a different bean. So here is what our Week 3 Garden Party looked like instead:
He didn't look that menacing before baking!
with Whipped Creamy Clouds
Your hail might not get this big, but ours sure does!
Rain with Lightning Straws
We used light blue Gatorade.
and Windy Cupcakes
Can't wait to see all of the creative interpretations of this week's symbols over at Catholic Cuisine on Monday!
