Celebrating Anniversaries, Birthdays and Cinco de Mayo during COVID19....Here are the Menus.

I'm posting my Weekly Menu a little early for next week.  We have a lot of celebrations for which I needed to plan and prepare.

Saturday we will be celebrating our Wedding Anniversary.  A lot has changed in 28 years but the love and contentment I get from this man has only gotten stronger.  I can't think of anyone else with whom I would rather spend my life.

Monday is Frank's birthday.  Four years ago we had a big party for him, as we have nearly every year since we've been married.  This year will be much different but still celebratory.

Then Cinco de Mayo actually falls on Taco Tuesday this year.  That's perfect for meal planning. In fact, if you are planning your menu check out the Taco Crepes I am sharing tomorrow.

The rest of the week will be more of the same.  We will be Staying Home/Staying Safe/Staying Well.  I hope this finds you in good health and spirits.

One of our local first responders has a wood fired pizza truck that he is setting up in the parking lot of our chiropractor's office tomorrow.  We are going to support him so I have moved my Fish Friday dinner tomorrow to be our starter for our Anniversary Dinner on Saturday.

  1. Congratulations and happy birthday!! Okay, what's zip sauce? That sounds like something I need to have in my life. LOL.

    1. It is just a beef and wine reduction made popular at a steak house called Lelli's in the Detroit area. It has rosemary, garlic, worcestershire, and LOTS of butter.

  2. Congratulations and happy birthday Frank!!! So happy to know you both. You two are such very special people.

    1. Awww, thanks Karen. I am so glad that we could get together, I will let you know the next time I'm in your neck of the woods.
