Week 400 Menu

I love round numbers. I kind of feel like the fates gave me weekly menu #400 for my birthday. That was nice of them! It’s my birthday this week, which also means it’s Owen’s since we share the same birthday! It also means that I need to break out the ol’ cake-making skills. Owen has requested a chocolate airplane cake. Wish me luck!

week 400 weekly menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable meal plan and shopping list

Quick side note before the menu…I am absolutely loving the comments you all are sharing on my post about finding your quest. Please go click through and read the comments as well as share your own – it’s truly inspiring! Okay, onto the menu, which, apparently, I followed to a T last week, so now I have to think of all new ideas. I hate it when I’m so responsible!

Pasta Primavera
– Crusty bread

Kitchen Sink Quesadillas
– Chips & Guacamole

– Leftovers

– Hot dogs or Mac ‘n’ Cheese (Owen’s favorites)

White Chicken Chili

– Leftover chili for kids, out to dinner with Nate!

– Eating out while on a train adventure to celebrate Owen’s birthday! 🙂

All I want for my birthday is for TONS of you to post your weekly menu! Okay, I also want the Viking cake from Extraordinary Desserts, but your menus would be almost as sweet!
