Menu Planning Monday: Recovering from Graduation Parties

How’s it going everyone? Whew! I’m still recovering from the weekend. I’m exhausted physically and socially. Both my husband AND my youngest sister graduated this weekend. Friday evening we had the Arts convocation to attend for my husband (beforehand we hosted a BBQ dinner for family and close friends) and afterwards we hosted a party! Saturday I watched my sister graduated, then hung out at her house to celebrate on Saturday evening. Yesterday, my husband “walked down the hill” as is tradition for KU graduates. After that I/we didn’t do much of anything for the rest of the day.

 

We had a good number of leftovers from our graduation party, so you will note that on this week’s menu (we also froze some hamburgers for another time!!)
