Menu Plan Monday - March 12, 2012

It's my Big Helper's birthday week, and boy, is she excited!  She's planning meals and arrangements and decorations and bouncing with excitement.  It's so fun to watch her!

The weather seems to be gearing up towards the beginning of spring, as we're to experience a slow warm-up this week.  We're definitely ready to break out the grill.

With that in mind, here's our party- and spring-friendly menu plan for the week.

- blueberry muffins, oranges
- scrambled eggs, toast, bananas

- fruit and yogurt parfaits with Cinnamon Almond Granola
- cinnamon rolls, fruit

Lunches will be our usual assortment of leftovers or sandwiches with yogurt or cheese and sliced veggies or fruit.

- Cheeseburger Calzones
- Taco soup, tortilla chips
- Fish fry night! (My Little Man's studying fish in school this week, and this is the way he wants to cook it.)  Fried fish, oven fries, carrot sticks

- Grilled ham, S'Mashed Italian Potatoes, lima beans

- Pizza, salad
- Dinner out for the birthday girl

- Hamburgers, Mom's Baked Corn, birthday cake and ice cream

We'll also be taking a birthday treat to her classroom.  I have an idea for a kid-friendly combination of cake and ice cream.  If all goes well, I'll post it next week!

What are you cooking up this week?
