I'm very excited for this week's meal plan because Grady's birthday is Tuesday. When we lived at home, my Mom used to let the birthday kid pick whatever they wanted for their birthday dinner and she'd make it. My little brother chose pancakes and ice cream every year so every year my health-conscious, salad-with-every-dinner mom would let us eat pancakes and ice cream for dinner. It turns out that Grady is a lot like Uncle Westy because when I asked him what I should make for his birthday dinner he requested waffles, bacon, and ice cream. Well played, kid.
Tuesday: Birthday waffles, bacon, and ice cream! Shawn and I will also have leftover frittata to pretend we're grownups.
Wednesday: Grilled salmon served with quinoa and sautéed veggies.
Thursday: Giant green salads served with chicken wings for Shawn and leftover salmon for me.
Friday: Pierogis and grilled smokies served with green salad.
