    Dinner: At a Friend's House: Bring a Tossed Salad
The chili, chicken noodle soup and beef stew are from the freezer as is the bacon and the chicken.  We are at a friend's house for Independence Day on Saturday and are planning on bringing a Tossed Salad for the dinner and then we'll stay and enjoy the fireworks at a nearby park.   We'll make homemade ice cream on Saturday and we should have enough cream to make two batches - one vanilla and one strawberry.  I will go shopping on Friday to get what we need to make that.
We had lots of apples and pears leftover from last week and the children will take a fruit snack and pretzels for extra snacks at camp each day.  They rarely get fruit snacks but they asked for them and since they were on sale, I agreed.   They spend 8 hours a day outside at camp each day so I think they can have a little "junk food" every now and again! 
We're hoping to get beets (beetroot), cabbage and perhaps cherries and raspberries too this week in our CSA!  I'm excited!
What are you eating this week?
