Turn it up to eleven

What to have for your eleventh birthday when it's on a weeknight and your dad won't be home in time to make your favorite fried chicken before you have to leave for your school open house:

Bacon cheese chicken made with Daiya cheddar and ranch dressing made with 1/2 mayo and 1/2 Tofutti Sour Supreme, using Mary Ostyn's ranch dressing mix
Crack Broccoli
Baked Potatoes
Daddy's Rolls
Pineapple Upside Down Cake (using cake mix)

Happy Birthday, Katherine.


  1. Happy birthday!!!!

    You mention Daiya cheese - everyone seems to think it's really good - is it?

    1. It's not cheese, let's get that straight. The flavor is good but the texture is off. BUT! K. never liked any other kind of cheese substitute (aside from Tofutti cream cheese) and she likes this if it's melted. Of course she's never eaten dairy cheese. The rest of us like it OK, but I usually make a separate portion of dinner for her for taste/cost purposes.

  2. 11 years old! Wow! I have an 11 year old too. That's well into pre-teen years now :) Hope K has a great bday!

  3. Wow, I can't believe she's 11!! I hope that she had a fabulous birthday! It sounds like a great birthday meal.
