Menu Plan: March 13th-19th

This week we have a busy week, including my son’s birthday, so I am keeping the menu plan pretty simple.

My son choose breakfast for dinner for his birthday dinner, which will be very easy to make. The fact that he choose breakfast for dinner did not surprise me at all because breakfast is his favorite meal.

He also decided that he wanted my gluten free Chocolate Sheet Cake for dessert. I told him that I would make him anything he wanted for his birthday cake, because it was his birthday, but he insisted that I make something that we could all have.

It was so nice and thoughtful of him to want everyone to be able to enjoy his cake. I hope he stays so sweet and thoughtful!

Here is the menu plan for the week.


banana baked oatmeal ( I have quite a few bananas that need used so we might eat this for a few days.)

smoothies and muffins


homemade granola




slow cooked pepper steak


pasta with sausage ( a new recipe)

roast and potatoes

breakfast for dinner

corned beef and cabbage( My husband loves corned beef and I am hoping to find a good sale on it this week.)

  1. I really like your menu planning. I try to do menu planning every week but sometimes life gets in the way. I came across your blog earlier today, I am really enjoying it 😉

  2. The most heart warming part of this post- he insisted on a dessert everyone could have- what a wonderful child you have raised!

  3. We are at the end of “Birthday Season” here for us! Hubby’s Birthday is today (and I will be making him a Lemon Meringue Pie today, his favorite – which also coincides with National PI (as in 3.14) Day! Love that!) My Mother’s Birthday was last Friday and so every year we combine the celebrations for the two of them – WHICH gives me a whole week to get ready and prepare for my SON’S birthday which is 7 days after his Daddy’s!!! That will be the last birthday we have until May (yeesh! It started back in January on the 31st! Birthday Season that is!)

    Love that your son wants to share his cake with everyone. I hope mine will grow to be as sweet too (he’ll be 3, we’re working on it!)
