Special occasion meals

I'm not talking about holidays...I'm talking about family members' birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Do you make a special meal for these occasions?

Birthdays, yes. I let the birthday person tell me what they want to eat for supper that night, as well as what kind of cake or dessert they want.

The only other special meals I make are for holidays. Well, except when OSS was home on leave this winter. I made a lot of special meals to include his favorites in the short time he was home. Does that count?

 I let the kids decide what they want for dinner on their actual birthday.  Sometimes they choose eating out, other times they request a home cooked meal.  We have a big family so once a month the whole family gets together to celebrate all the birthdays for that month and we have a large meal.  We plan it and everyone has a particular item to bring (unless it's their birthday month,  then we're exempt from cooking).

Yes, I do.  They get to choose.  My son's bd is in March and for dinner he wants country fried steaks with white black pepper gravy and boneless BBQ wings.  For his cake he wants my Dr. Pepper chocolate cake and homemade Dr. Pepper ice cream.  The cake I've made for years, but the ice cream will be new, we recently found the recipe on Pinterest.

 Yes! I make a special breakfast and dinner for the kids birthdays.  DF it depends on what day his birthday falls on, as to if he gets breafast or not.  We also do special dinners/meals through out the year just because.  My kids are still young (preschool, toddler, and baby) so they love to celebrate any and everything.

The kids decide what they want for their birthday dinners. Otherwise, things don't get to special. :)

 Yes, for Birthdays and Anniversary if we don't go out to eat, but also for all the little holidays like Mardi Gras,  St. Pastrick's Day. And if they're studying something in school, like another country-we have a meal to celebrate that. Also for good report cards, or receiving a special award, or the team works hard and accomplishes goals. We like to make meals special and celebrate little things.

Yes always unless we decide to go to the families fav restuarant 'Little Italy'. We only go there when its all of us: my parents, my siblings, and my nieces and nephews which is 17 of us.

I try to. Definitely have cake for birthdays (or cupcakes for little one), and generally something nice to eat. For my daughter's birthday, she even got butterfly shaped pancakes (using a metal cookie cutter to set the shape).
