Menu Plan Monday (Birthday Week!)


My son's birthday is tomorrow. He asked his dad to bake his cake this year (what's up with that?). My husband has made this Southwest Georgia Pound Cake several times and Evan really likes it, so that's what he's chosen for his birthday cake. To make up for it and to remind my son that I am the best cook in the house, I have offered to give him a week's worth of his favorite dinners.

This is really no big sacrifice, because he's not a picky eater and his favorite dinners are our favorites too. I am trying to make it seem like a big sacrifice on my part, however. Hee hee.

Here is our meal plan for Birthday Week:


Steak sandwiches --- recipe from The Pioneer Woman, except I only salt and pepper the steak. I don't add the sauces. It's become my son's hands down favorite meal.


Barbecued meatballs, mashed potatoes, corn, salad --- my down to earth mother-in-law's meatball recipe.


Meatloaf, veggies, fried potatoes


Hamburgers, veggies


Leftovers --- there will be many to choose from and by Friday I will be all cooked out!

My son is quite the carnivore. He does like chicken, but he's mostly a red meat kind of guy --- just like the husband.

Check out what everybody else is cooking this week!

Those Pioneer Woman sandwiches easily make it on our list of favorites as well.

I'm having her Onion Straws this week. They are SO GOOD.
