I am always sad to see the end of the summer but I love fall too! And this year it’s kind of exciting because we are in our new house and both of my kids are starting at new schools near our home.
Ella’s school is a brand-new charter school that focuses on a STEM curriculum and she couldn’t wait to start.
To celebrate I wanted to make a special dinner for her and invite her favorite people over! We were able to use the new dining room for the first time.
I was using it as an office but it was fun to have a special space to have everyone over.
I asked Ella what her favorite meal would be and she said Angel Chicken. So that’s what we had. Plus Asparagus Bacon Croissants, Shrimp Linguine, Salad and an Apple Tart. Yum! I will be sharing those recipes soon!
