Menu Plan - February 13

Last week was an exciting week around here... and a quiet one too.  We celebrated the Super Bowl and my birthday, although Frog Prince was gone all week :(

Saturday we made a long-time favorite of ours for dinner -- Parmesan Crusted Chicken.  It was as good as we remembered!

Sunday for brunch we tried a new fluffy applesauce pancake recipe -- they were delicious!

Sunday night we had a nice Super Bowl spread -- pizza and yummy munchies.  This was my parent's first Super Bowl party hosting ... and we enjoyed our time with them!  Frog Prince also made me my first birthday cake of the week!

Monday I ate leftovers of the delicious Alfredo chicken pasta that Frog Prince made for me before he traveled to Atlanta.

Tuesday, I put a Crockpot Italian Sausage Vegetable Soup in our slow cooker before I taught labs.  It was a delicious dish to come home to... especially after a day of working with mice in lab.  I was reminded after one of my students got bit by a mouse why I chose to study plants.

Wednesday was my birthday, and I was blessed to have my sister spend the day with me {in between my teaching, of course}, and we enjoyed French Bread Pizza's with steamed broccoli as a birthday dinner.

I ended up making cupcakes for a birthday treat with decadent chocolate frosting!  The awesome and amazing divisional secretary and I share our birthday, so half of the cupcakes made their way to campus with me on Wednesday.

The other half I shared with my family on Wednesday night when they came to visit for my birthday.  I talked to Frog Prince on the phone a few times, and he left me a cute hand-made card.

Thursday night I picked up Frog Prince at the airport, and we had French Bread Pizzas {again} for dinner when he got home.

Friday, we enjoyed a delicious brown rice casserole loaded with spinach.  Yum.

Saturday, we enjoyed Roasted Veggie Parmesan.  This remains one of our most favorite dishes.

One other highlight from the week was sharing with you a bit about my heart and the perfect birthday gift.  There's still time to join in our quest to feed 75-100 starving children for a year!  Visit this post for the details.
