This is the post-party, pooped-out edition. The party this weekend for Miss D's birthday was a success, I believe. It was hot, oh, so hot, but I don't know that the kids really noticed. The Barbie cake turned out well, although not exactly as I had planned. I ended up making two separate cakes (we didn't even cut into the second, oh well). I decided that making the cake three tiers was just a bit too ambitious and feared an avalanche given the extreme heat and humidity of the day. The two tiers worked out better anyway. Here are a couple of pictures of the cakes:

Monday - no cooking, going to a party, yeah!
Tuesday - Beef Tacos with fresh guacamole
Wednesday - Grilled chicken breasts
Thursday - Homemade Pizza - maybe on the grill?
Friday - Avocado Chicken Salad (with leftover grilled chicken)
