You'll notice I'm planning to make donuts this week. That's because the 1st Friday in June is national donut day. (OK, why does my spell-check think "donuts" is OK, but not "donut"? Personally, I think doughnut is how it should be spelled, but popular American usage dictates that donut be used...)
You may have noticed that the 1st Friday in June does not occur during the week of May 18.
If you don't believe me, take a look at a calendar. I'll wait. Back? OK.
So, considering that the 1st Friday in June is not this week, you may be wondering why I'm making donuts now (if you are not wondering why I am making donuts this week, you are my people).
The reason I'm making donuts this week is that the 1st Friday in June also happens to be the last day of school for my kiddos this year. That week is going to be crazy busy, so I'm putting it on the schedule this week in the hope that I'll get to it in the next two weeks. If you also want to make donuts for national donut day, but are feeling intimidated, try this super easy recipe.
We've got activities this week, sometimes needing to be in more than one place at once, but thankfully, they're all later in the evening, so I can cook like a normal person (if there is such a thing) this week.
Here's what's on the menu this week:
- Pizza or cauliflower crust pizza, carrots, salad
- Hamburgers with optional whole wheat buns, salad, green stuff, sweet peppers
- Out to eat
- Chicken tacos with tortillas and taco fixings
- Pizza casserole (using this recipe with smaller pasta), green beans, salad
- Zuppa Toscana with extra greens (corn dogs for the heathens who don't like Zuppa Toscana)
- Extra shredded chicken
- Greek yogurt
- Avocado chicken salad (with all Greek yogurt instead of mayo + yogurt)
- Zucchini "pasta" salad with creamy avocado dressing
- Old-fashioned sour cream donuts
