“Can you run to the store & grab stuff for the kids to eat tomorrow night?”
It was Friday afternoon when she called and I was out grabbing a few last minute things for our son’s football game the next day. The next day was when Becky was throwing her mom a birthday dinner.
We do something together for every birthday- her parents, her brother’s family and our family. This time it was for her mom and Becky already had the menu planned out. Simple, but filled with sweets afterward.
We went with BLT salad wraps (just chicken, bacon, sour cream & basil mixed up and placed in a wrap), pizza and a lot of desserts.
I stopped by Save-A-Lot on my way home. They always have what we need (especially with their own exclusive brand) and they seem to have a great selection of carefully selected products, so it’s easy to swing by & find what we need. Their pizza is always a hit. For her dad & brother, we got the supreme pizza. For the kids, we got the triple pepperoni pizza (both by request).
We used to stop by and pick up pizzas at a take out place, but we found that the America’s Choice® at Save-A-Lot pizza is our favorite and because they are a highly efficient supply chain, it enables them to sell at prices well below other retailers (and we use the extra money to buy other things… like dessert!)
For dessert, we had cheesecake (served with fruit)…
chocolate chip cookies (eaten up in about 60 seconds by all of the kids)…
and Pecan Caramel Brownie Cookie (my personal favorite). I like to have the brownie cookie with ice cream & a little chocolate sauce.
If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out. (If you can’t find it, just ask. The Save-A-Lot staff is always friendly, helpful & respectful.)
All in all, the party was a hit, the food was a hit and we all had a great time. Not that I’m surprised, Becky and I both have great families and it’s easy to have fun when you are hanging out with them.
