Well, we have a tired little household this morning. Yesterday was our little boy's 4th birthday. We had about 37 people here (17 kids, 20 adults) for the festivities. We like to keep them small, but the kids all have siblings now...and my son is in preschool.

In any event, it was very much fun, lots of sandwiches and cake and strawberries. Last year, I baked some of the bread and made the sandwiches and salads.

This year, I ordered the sandwiches (not terribly frugal). But there was very little cleanup required and the sammies were wonderful. We sent some home with people, had sandwiches for dinner last night, and there's more for lunch today. And I think I'll have one for breakfast too.

It turns out one of the moms of my kid's classmates is really getting into raw foods. She's not a raw foodist, but a vegetarian who is incorporating a lot of raw foods into her diet. We didn't get to talk about it much, more than to say that raw foods are awesome. It started because she was admiring my blender (a Blendtec).

Exercise I run (only did 4 miles yesterday), do yoga, or walk? Today I think I feel like walking with my friends (4 miles for me, 8 for them) when my hubby is done with tennis. I've got red beans soaking for Cook for Good's Red Bean Chili and we'll be mixing up some cornbread too.

Sometimes ease is more important than frugality...I think that is definitely the case when you have 37 people over and decide to order in sandwiches. that is a TON of people! It sounds like you guys had fun though. happy birthday to your son!
