Mealplan Monday #142 and another Mission Accomplished

 Saturday was an exciting day for the Cannary Family!  A Big Day -  The Girl's graduation from Baylor.  Four and a half years in the making.
I'm still going through all of the pictures, and I hardly know how to convey the sense of pride we feel in her.  But I can tell you that from the beginning she knew she wanted more from her college experience.  She didn't let the initial setback of not going to Coast Guard School hold her back.  She refocused her goals, applied to Baylor, and started making the impossible, possible.
Turns out it wasn't impossible - but it did involve a lot of hard work and sacrifice.  And yes, money.  But things worth having are worth the effort, time, and expense.  And she ended her last semester as strong as her first with excellent grades.  Of the 37 Accounting BBA's awarded, there were 8 that had double majors, and only 4 of those were secondary concentration in Finance.  The Girl was one of them. 
Monday - Chicken Cacciatore, spaghetti
Tuesday - Lentil Soup with smoked turkey, cornbread
Wednesday - Snackitizing Afternoon will include Pesto Dip with Crackers, Shrimp Ring, Layered Bean Dip with Fritos.  Dinner is Orange Chicken and Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes 
Thursday - Spiral Sliced Honey Ham, Steakhouse Mac and Cheese, broccoli, rolls and Blue Velvet Birthday Cupcakes - HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY, BUBBIE!
Friday - Turkey Bacon Crescent Pillows, tots
Saturday - Dad grill
Sunday - Weeknight Lasagna Toss, peas
We are proud of all of our children - they each bring something unique and special to our group.  They are a success in their own right due to their hard work and persistence.  And they are full of love for their siblings and parents.
And behind every successful student is a supportive family!
