In honor of Menu Plan Monday, I'll include our ritual (as in, we did it last year and I plan to do it this year) Valentines Breakfast.
Use this pancake recipe, add the blended beets to make them pink (you can't taste the beets, I promise!) and add M&Ms and carefully pour them on the griddle to create hearts. (Last year's hearts do not include the beets.)
On Sunday morning, I will decorate the dining room, put the kids' and hubby's gifts in front of their plates and serve our "breakfast of love." I can't wait!
And as for the rest of the week, here's what it's looking like:
Mon: I'm gone to teach a class so the hubby and kids will have leftover cheeseburger buns.
Tues: Hubby's favorite: hot dogs, sour kraut, and mashed potatoes (don't ask me; he mixes it all together and pours obscene amounts of mustard on it, and it makes him very happy.)
Wed: I'll use the leftover mashed potatoes to make a simple cream of potato soup. I'll serve it with crumbled bacon and shredded cheese. Yum!
Thurs: spaghetti pie (something like this)
Fri: Family night at the Y then out for something inexpensive, like Taco Bell
Sat: Hubby and I go out! We used Restaurant.com, so it won't cost us much besides the babysitter!
Happy week of Valentines day! On Of Such is the Kingdom we'll celebrate it all week!
