Whats For Dinner Next Week 5-24-15

Coming to you today from Rain Soaked Texas with not a dry day in sight, yes folks it is still raining. We are having the 10th wettest season in the last 117 years, since they started recording the weather.  We are making our picnic plans for the weekend and hoping to be under the canopy and if it gets to wet we will bring it inside. This is usually a big weekend here at the lake with the opening of the pools and the fishing docks. We are expecting house guest this weekend and looking forward to planning the food for all the events. Most of our Meal Plan for this week can be an outdoor or indoor meal.

Strawberry Cream Cake

This is one of my Grandson's favorite cakes. He always ask for this cake when he is coming to visit. This is a great cake to serve for any event and is perfect for cover dish dinners or luncheons. Strawberry Cream Cake is just that, a creamy whipped cream topping with a layer of pudding followed by a strawberry soaked cake, it is so good, no wonder it is a favorite with this family.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 5-17-15

Menu planning in the spring requires a lot of weather watching especially in Texas. I am planning a cookout for the weekend but that totally depends on the weather, the rain check will take it in the house. Grilling season is here and May is National Burger Month, we are more than ready to get started on the season. We are having a community fish fry this week and the guys are starting to bring in the fish, can't wait for this one. It's going to be a yummy week at the cottage.
