Menu Plan: Fabulous 4 (?!)


I’m in a bit of denial.


My BABY will be turning four this week. Madness, I tell you. We celebrated with family yesterday evening after a flurry of playoff games amidst the boys in the fam. There was fruit, cheese, chips & salsa, penne alfredo, ravioli lasagna, rotini marinara*, salad, broccoli, garlic bread with cheese, and vanilla buttercream cake topped with blueberries.


Nobody went hungry. :)


We are still in school around here and the busy-ness is in full swing. The weather is stunning, however– 70s by day, 50s by night– and I’m cherishing these wonderful days!


Here’s the plan for this week:




Breakfast (for the littles before 7:30am Mass)–Cheerios, Mixed Fruit

Brunch–Broccoli, Mushroom, & Cheese Breakfast Burritos

D–Leftovers (or kids eat free night at Chili’s– we’ll see how the day goes!)



B–Vanilla Coconut Oatmeal, Strawberries, Milk 

D–Homemade SpaghettiOs with Franks, Green Breans



B–PB Raisin Toast, Milk

D–Baked Potato Bar w/ broccoli, cheese, ham, etc. (Only 2 out of 5 of us really like potatoes, but the rest of us will deal.)



Wednesday: (G’s 4th– all meals at the request of the birthday girl.)

B–Lucky Charms, Blueberries, Watermelon, Milk

L–Cheesy Beans & Rice w/ Ranch, Strawberries, Pineapple

D–PB&J, Tomato Slices, Ranch Chips




B–Mocha Mint Oatmeal, Pineapple, Juice

D–BBQ Hot Dogs, Corn Bread, Broccoli (date night!)



B–Watermelon Lime Slush, Toast

D–Ham & Chicken Pizza



B–Egg Sandwiches, Blueberries, Yogurt

D–Pigs in Blankets, Corn


And that’ll take care of it!


Sigh… birthdays. So bittersweet. Honestly, I think it’s harder to watch my kids get older than it is to get older myself! What do you think?


*Our eight-year-old, for who knows what reason, kept calling the rotini marinara “redneck screw” last night… and I was DYING. Dying, I tell you.
