World Thinking Day and Meal Plan Week 52

So, to celebrate that all of the cookie money is in, deposits were made and rewards ordered... and, I am OFFICIALLY done with cookies (except for handing out the rewards)... AND, I didn't screw anything up as girl scout cookie manger (WHEW!)... I thought I'd share some photos from World Thinking Day, which was a really neat night where Autumn learned about different countries. Each troop did a different country and the girls got to learn a little about the country, do a craft, eat a food, play a game and receive a swap.

Autumn's troop did Ireland and gave out Lucky Charms in little cups and you'll also see the swaps on the table. When I was in girl scouts they didn't do swaps in my troop, but they are a little pin with something on it that reminds the girl of that activity. Also, the girls can trade the swaps with other girl scouts at events. Autumn made a hat for her swaps at her last meeting, before that I was keeping them on her vest.

Tossing gold coins for the game


The girls being silly, posing with their Leprechaun hats, etc.


Learning about Jamaica

They got to do a really neat craft for Jamaica. They took those little bingo stamps and got to stamp colors onto plates, then they added feet and a head to make a turtle.

All of the girls and their turtles

At Greece they got to try Greek yogurt! Autumn just LOVES yogurt, so she was all over this... except, I usually add strawberries and blueberries to hers.

In Spain they got to enjoy hot cocoa and churros! They even let the moms have some! YUM!!!

They also did a fan craft. Autumn had to make several more fans once we got home.

The kids have had SO many scouting activities, that I haven't had time to blog about them all. I try to share a little bit about our family life each Friday and I thought the World Thinking Day was too cute not to share. So, now that I have that wrapped up... are you ready for the Meal Plan??? Week 52, can you believe it?

Meal Plan Week 52

Sunday - Shogun Steakhouse
We have never taken the kids to a Japanese restaurant where they cook around the table for you and throw little pieces of shrimp at you for you to catch in your mouth. Nathan has been really wanting to try a Japanese restaurant and he also wants to go to the Melting Pot. I figure that it would be fun to eat at Shogun for our last dinner of Spring break and maybe we'll try the Melting Pot on one of their kids nights once Autumn gets just a LITTLE older.

Monday - Baked Potato Bar
I did this a little over a month ago and it was a HUGE hit. I make regular potatoes and sweet potatoes... toppings include crumbled bacon, broccoli and cheese, sour cream, shredded cheese, etc.

Tuesday - Taco's
We have scouts tonight, so this will be quick and easy!

Wednesday - Frozen Pizza
Autumn has dance, so another quick and easy dinner... We pretty much have frozen pizza EVERY Wednesday. 

Thursday -  Skinny Zucchini Lasagna, recipe HERE
I haven't made this delicious zucchini lasagna since the weather turned cold. It is SO delicious, and is one of my absolute favorite recipes. It is a little time-consuming, but it makes a huge batch and is perfect for leftovers the next night. 

Friday - Leftovers

Saturday - Dinner Out
