Menu Plan #63 Valentine's Week!

Okay, so I might enjoy festivities just a little bit.  Special days mark the year and help familiarize our children with the rhythm of the seasons.  Besides, holidays are just plain happy.  I can always use a little happy in my life, can't you?  Not only does this week hold Valentine's Day, but our second born celebrates birthday number nine the day before!  My boy!  As I've said before, I allow the birthday baby, er, person to choose each meal of the day and I relinquish food standards.  Thankfully, all the junk food my children know is found at Trader Joe's so it's not too horribly bad and there are not artificial anythings going on.  Wishing you a week filled with love and happiness.

  1. Katie, your menu looks great.. Do you happen to know if the TJ's cheese pizza is gluten free? Been looking for a gf pizza option for those times! :)

  2. I haven't found a GF pizza there. I bet they'll have one soon, though. :)

  3. Katie, I just stopped by Trader Joe's and they now have frozen GF Cheese Pizza!! I am so excited! Just wanted to pass that along! :)

  4. Yahoo! Thanks for letting me know! That's what we'll be getting when we go tomorrow!
