Weekly Meal Plan: Dec. 11 - Dec. 17, 2023

Hey, you! 😊

It's my birthday week! Yay! 🎉🎉

Growing up, birthdays were a huge thing in my family. I think it comes from my mom and when she passed away my dad kinda took over. There was always a party, lots of gifts, and a special family dinner at a nice restaurant. The whole shebang. But now that I'm older and a mother, it's different. Of course, we'll do something nice to celebrate our daughter's birthday, but when it comes to my husband and I, not so much. It might be also because he's not too big on birthdays, so it must have rubbed off on me. Haha.

One thing that I do though is prepare the birthday celebrant's meal request. So as I sat down earlier this week preparing our weekly meal plan, I seriously contemplated what I wanted to eat for my birthday. We always have a noodle dish for birthdays, but the question is - which one this year? There's so much to choose from! Filipino Spaghetti, Bam-i, Sotanghon, Japchae ...??? I finally settled with two choices - Hot Pot and Budae Jjigae - but I can't choose one from the other, so we're having both this weekend. Hot Pot for Friday evening and Budae Jjigae on Saturday. No one is gonna complain about that. Hahaha. Same dilemma for the birthday cake. I want to make my own this year, except I can't decide which one. I want the Monster Chocolate Cake like the one in the movie Mathilda, but I also want the Mango Cake I like to make (which I haven't in a while!). I'm so torn. Do you think I can have both? 😅

xoxo Elodie
