For Eva's snack I packed: a strawberry, go gurt, string cheese, ww ritz, green peppers and carrot sticks.  Gerald got some of the leftover mac & cheese pie from last night's dinner. For breakfast, I packed him some pancakes with breakfast sausage and maple syrup.

Breakfast:  Blueberry waffles, breakfast sausage, oj
Lunch:  Leftovers
Dinner: Beef n Bean Nachos, Sweet-Potato Chicken Quesadillas and Rice
Dessert:  Triple Berry Sherbert

     Well, tonight is another night of T-ball and I was so proud of myself getting everything to the table early enough for us all to eat. Until Eva looks at me and says, "Mom, it's Thursday. We're suppose to have spaghetti on Thursday." Really? It's Thursday!?! I honestly thought it was Wednesday!! Memorial Day weekend has been playing tricks on me all week!  Oh well, the world still kept spinning and maybe I'll get it together next week!
     Dinner was a surprise. Other reviews said their kids liked the quesadillas, but mine didn't! ( I thought they were AWESOME! Will make them again just for Gerald and I!)  The triplets really liked the nachos. Eva only had a cheese quesadillas and rice (of course!)
     Went to T-ball and it was a beautiful day for it. Afterwards, we came home and had some Triple Berry sherbert. Eva was the only one who didn't like it! I couldn't believe it! Oh well, her loss!!
