This week we celebrate Gabriel 5th birthday! My sweet friend Kristin and her son Dawson will be in town to visit as well. We will be eating out a lot so no real meal plan this week but here is the plan for the party food.

Funfetti Cookies – Gabriel gets to bring cookies to his Preschool to celebrate his birthday and these are the cookies he chose.

Gabriel’s Party Menu:

Pigs in a blanket, cubed cheese with pretzel picks, watermelon wedges on popsicle sticks and cake. This year Gabriel requested a chocolate cake with white frosting.

English Muffin Pizzas -I wouldn’t usually add a link for this but just in case you have never made these before this gal makes them just like I do. We will use a ton of odds and ends from our fridge for the toppings. Fruit and raw veggies on the side.

Chicken Cordon Blue Roll Ups -Adding a little bit of light Alfredo Sauce  and steamed Broccoli to the roll ups. Serving with raw Bell Pepper Strips and fruit.

-Made this a couple weeks ago and really liked. I doubled recipe and froze the filling and defrosting and using this week.

Creamy Swiss Cheese Chicken Bake -Serving w/ Baked Brown Rice and Roasted Broccoli

-didn’t make last week again! Must make this week!

Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps – Serving with cucumber slices and fruit.

Zucchini Pizza Casserole– Topping with mini pepperoni, diced ham, olives, bell peppers, spinach and maybe pineapple. Serving w/ Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks

Whole Wheat Banana Muffins – since cutting out sugar this is the best “no white sugar” baked good I have had. So yummy and moist. I added frozen blueberries.

Homemade Valentine Trail Mix -Bringing for Gabriel’s soccer team Valentine snack.

Classic Strawberry Shortcake -I was stressing about what valentine dessert to make and then saw one of may favorite desserts on one of my favorite blogs. Why haven’t I ever made stawberry shortcake on Valentine day before??? Doing it this year!

San Francisco Chops (Slow Cooker) – Serving w/ Baked Brown Rice (variation #2) and Roasted Broccoli

Chicken Cordon Blue Roll Ups -Adding a little bit of light Alfredo Sauce  and steamed Broccoli to the roll ups. Serving with raw Bell Pepper Strips and fruit.

Taco Salad Dippers – I have a feeling this might make too much for our family even if we eat for lunch too, so I might freeze half for later.
