Menu Plan Monday – What’s Cooking at Our House This Week



Spent all day this past Saturday on a Food Network adventure with my 9-year-old daughter in lieu of a birthday party.  Strange as it seems, this is what she wanted – and my husband and I had such a great time planning her birthday outing with stops at a few Philadelphia area locations that have been featured on the Food Network.  First up was Sweet Freedom Bakery (featured on Cupcake Wars).  Their cupcakes are not only delicious but allergy friendly and gluten free!  I have no idea how on Earth they tasted as good as they did – but it was well worth the trip – and we loved everything we tried.  The tomato pie was awesome too!  We then took a stroll around Collingswood stopping by a cute candy store called The Candy Jar where we found what we were told is a Rachel Ray’s favorite dessert featured in her holiday hot list – Crispery Crispycakes – of course we had to buy one to take home to try later and it was super yummy!  For dinner we headed off to Silk City Diner on Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia, which was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.  The inside was very diner retro and they also have a seasonal outdoor garden area with tables and an outdoor bar was was adorable!  We ate outside and loved the atmosphere.  Food was delicious and I definitely will be back!   All in all my daughter had an awesome day – and to top things off, she receive autographed pictures with birthday wishes from both Guy Fieri and Laura Fuller!  She was over the moon when she opened both pieces of mail today. Anyway, after all of the splurging all weekend, it is back to my menu planning as usual. Here’s what I have planned this week.
