Weekly Menu Plan #48

Soup in mugs for lunch
It's birthday week here at the Riddle Ranch!  Jeremy celebrates his 35th on Thursday and our six-year-old turns seven on Saturday.  It's tradition that the birthday person gets to choose their favorite meals and I relinquish all food standards, so you might see some odd-for-this-blog choices a couple days this week.  To make it even better, the kids only have three days of school, so we get to enjoy some leisurely breakfasts and lunches at our kitchen table.  Happiness!

I'm sharing this at Pennywise Platter.


  1. I love that you relinquish all food rules for birthdays! That is a great idea and my husband would be ecstatic :) I think I may have to adopt that i our home.

  2. hello katie! thanks so much for sharing your meal plans. they are a life saver. just a questions. what noodles would you use if doing a grain-free version of the sour cream noodle bake?

  3. I'm so glad you like them! I use rice noodles but you can try spaghetti squash if you want to stay away from all grains.


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
