Sara over at Three Clever Sisters just food tagged me. The rules are that you look through your recipes and find a menu for an upcoming holiday. You post the menu and tag 10 additional people. Technically I should have only included posts I have actual recipes up for, but I got swayed by some favorites in the dessert category.
Today is my daughter's 1/2 birthday! She's 3 1/2. I decided to put together a menu for a 1/2 birthday party. Yes, we celebrate 1/2 birthdays in our family. At least the kids do, so here's a menu that's fun for the whole family. (I just noticed that it's heavily bread and flour based. I think I might be craving carbs right now.)
I did a little twist on the menu idea and decided to do a menu for the whole day instead of just the main meal.
Now, tag! You're it!

Breakfast. A choice.
Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes - Always a hit!
Baked French Toast - I didn't take any pics of my baked french toast. Trust me. It was delicious. Let me also recommend that you use some leftover challah for the bread!
Pizza Margherita - Who doesn't love pizza!
Easy Pizza - And, if you're short on time, just grab any ol' dough at the market and let the kids make their own pizzas.
Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins - These muffins are a great afternoon treat.
Five Spice Roast Chicken with Ginger Scented Rice - A favorite of ours.
Swedish Meat Pies - Delicious and portable. Perhaps make them ahead of time and eat them at the park at dusk while the kids play.
Dessert. Have one of each.
