It’s birthday week in our house! Both Noah and I have birthday’s this week.
I’ve always, always, always loved birthdays. And then I faced cancer. And won. It puts life into perspective and now birthdays have even more meaning. Each life is reason to celebrate. Every life has value. Every life has purpose. It’s a reason to celebrate!
So, that’s what we’ll do. We’ll take days off school. We’ll eat cake for breakfast. We’ll go out to eat and shopping. We’ll make memories and remember what we’ve done in years past.
I’m forgoing my private birthday celebration and instead going to a Light for the Lost banquet with people from church. I love missions, so it’s a good way to spend my birthday. Noah wants a trip to Bass Pro Shoppes and a new BB gun (don’t worry, we won’t let him shoot his eye out). We’ll spend time with family. It will be a great week.
So, what do we eat on birthday week? Well, right now it’s a lot of “It’s too nice outside, who wants to take the time out to eat?” food.
Monday – Chip and I had Applebeas. The kids had sloppy joes.
Tuesday – Prime rib, potatoes, veggies for Chip & I at the banquet. Frozen pizza for the kids.
Wednesday – hamburgers and chips. I make AWESOME hamburgers. The trick? Cooking them in a skillet on the stove – NEVER on the grill.
Thursday – Noah’s birthday – He’s torn between Buffalo Wild Wings and CiCi’s pizza.
Friday - chicken cheese quesadillas (Elijah’s making dinner)
Saturday – Bratwurst (cheddar & bacon bratwurst), fries, baked beans and fresh veggies
Sunday – Taco salad
What’s on your menu this week?
