Here is my big girl a couple of days ago, coming home to the gluten and dairy free Do-Si-Do makeover. Cute, huh? Yeah, well, this week is her birthday and she will be twelve + one! Yikes! When did she get so grown up? Between the impending dual teen invasion and my older son (twelve +3) taking his driver’s permit test this week, mommy might be having a wee case of the vapors.
Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday for more menu inspiration. For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, see our host Wendy at Celiacs in the House. She has chosen winter veggies as this weeks theme. I love it!
Monday: No school for the kiddos/retainer check-up/big boy skiing/mommy teaches gluten and dairy free muffin class (mmm….)
Slow Cooker Tangy Tomato Beef and a salad
Tuesday: mommy walk with a friend/Big girl’s birthday (it’s a biggie – she will be 12 +1. Yes, I am still in denial…)/bring the big boy in for driver’s permit test (yikes! Tuesday is a big day for both my big kids. I may need a hug…)
Birthday girl’s choice: Fajitas with all the fixings, salad with poppy seed dressing and Hot Chocolate Cupcakes
Wednesday: Hubby home from trip/little girl dance class/youth group
Turkey Pot Pie (also a big girl request) with a salad
Thursday: Girl Scout Brownie meeting
Roasted vegetable dinner (using lots of winter root veg) and a salad
Friday: elementary school concert
Kale and potato cakes from Celiacs in the House (regular and sweet potato versions), homemade turkey sausage and rainbow slaw
Again with a birthday dinner (but with daddy home to celebrate, too) Thai Chicken Pizza, salad and Hot Chocolate Cupcakes
