Menu plan Monday, week of January 14
Monday - Chicken Piccata
Tuesday - Crockpot Lasagna
Wednesday - Dinner out/church
Thursday - Scott's birthday...I can't get him to tell me what he wants for dinner. He has asked for a Lincoln Log cake, though. His mom made them for birthdays and they just make him happy. I made one Lincoln Log cake. It was pretty much a disaster, but that was at least 8 years ago, so maybe it's time I tried again. Here's a picture of the one I made:Just kidding! This is a Buche de Noel I found through google. Mine was--by Scott's request--chocolate cake with whipped cream filling, chocolate icing, and sliced almonds placed meticulously over the entire surface to simulate bark. It was the almonds that pushed me over the edge.
Friday - Lime Shrimp & Black Bean Soup
Saturday - Theme Night! "Diner Dinner" We're having grilled burgers, french fries, maybe onion rings, and cherry coke, root beer or milkshakes. I would love to find plastic baskets to serve the burgers in, and wrap them in parchment paper with a toothpick stuck through. Oh shoot! I just remembered we have a babysitter for Saturday. Wonder if Scott would let me do my Mom's Diner schtick on his birthday?
Sunday - Breakfast for dinner. (We got off-track last week and ended up with Beef & Broccoli for dinner last night. The kiddos were not happy. Lesson learned; back to breakfast this week.)
