Menu Plan {March 16th-22nd}

Weekly Meal Plan

My son has a birthday this week. Birthdays at our house can often make for an interesting menu because we let the child who has a birthday pick all the meals on their Birthday. Over the years this has made for some interesting, but fun and memorable meals. Like the year my son choose pancakes for breakfast, waffles for lunch, and pancakes for dinner.

This year his meals are pretty normal. Chocolate baked oatmeal for breakfast. Waffles for lunch and pepperoni pizza for dinner. He has not decided on his cake yet, but I am pretty sure he will go with chocolate since he loves anything chocolate.

Do you let your kids pick their birthday meals? 

Here is this week’s plan.

  1. Happy birthday to your son. We let our kids pick the restaurant of their choice for dinner – we don’t do kid bday parties usually so the extra expense isn’t a big deal. One of my boys likes a bakery cake as well but the others prefer ones I make.

  2. We let our kids pick their birthday dinners. My son always wants to go out to eat on his birthday, since we don’t eat out that often. Your menu looks good this week.
