Menu Plan Monday--March 8

This week is going to be topped off with a Birthday Party! The Boy is turning 13! I can't believe that 13 years ago this week I was confined to a hospital bed trying to keep him from being born. And in just a month, the little miss will turn one! Big, big milestones happening here!

We have a couple fun family birthday traditions.

The first we took with us when we left Oregon. D's family gets together once a month to celebrate all the birthdays for the month. The birthday person gets to pick his/her meal. It's just a small way to make that person feel extra special. Having birthday dinner for us is the favorite meal, cake and presents.

The other tradition is breakfast cinnamon rolls. My cinnamon rolls are only made on special occasions: Christmas, Easter and birthdays. I find a little bit of pleasure in making my kids wait to certain times of year for certain treats. But, with 6 kids and how the birthdays fall, we end up having them every other month LOL

MENU:

Sunday: Baja Chicken Tacos (No recipe. they were gross)
Monday: Spicy Hot Pot with Noodles
Tuesday: Ranch Style Chicken Chili
Wednesday: Asian Pepper Steak
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie
Friday: Uptown Tuna Casserole
Saturday: BLTs (The Boy's choice. His favorite food is BACON)
