Menu Plan: ‘Twas the Week Before Christmas

 

 

So here’s what I learned last week.

 

Though they seem to be out of trend as a blogging topic, menu plans are still well-liked. I was happily surprised how many of you seemed genuinely pleased to see one back last week! I can’t promise to post a plan EVERY week, but I do have one for you again this week.

 

And, for those of you who’d rather skip it, I’m not a bit offended. These sorts of posts aren’t for everyone, of course. You might enjoy more the post I sneaked in on Saturday, about finding greatness in the simple things.

 

But, in case you’re interested, here’s the plan for what we’ll be eating. This is, of course, a BUSY prep week, so there’s a lot of easy stuff on here. I’m aiming for quick-to-cook, universally-liked, and requires-no-grocery-buying this week.

 

 

Here’s the plan:

 

Sunday:

Breakfast– Chocolate Chip Waffles w/ Whipped Cream (<– these didn’t happen last Saturday, because my husband had to work), Clementines

Lunch– Quick Cheese Pizza on unleavened crust (I’m out of yeast!! I did add salt and herbs to that recipe, so you know…)

D–Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s

 

Monday: 

B–Apple Juice-Steeped Oatmeal w/ Raisins, Milk

D–Italian Chicken & Orzo in the slow cooker (I’m making up my church school class tonight since we had a snow day last week.)

 

 

Tuesday: 

B–Cranberry Dark Chocolate Muffins, Apples, Milk (I added mini dark chocolate chips and fresh cranberries to Jessica’s recipe– yum!)

D–Homemade Hamburger Helper, Corn, Carrot Sticks

 

 

Wednesday: 

B–Cranberry Dark Chocolate Muffins, Vanilla Yogurt, Juice

D–BBQ Chicken Legs in the slow cooker, Oven Fries, Peas (date night!)

 

 

Thursday: 

B–PB Honey Oatmeal, Juice

D–Angelhair w/ Chicken & Mixed Veggies

 

Friday:

B–Berry Cream Smoothies, Toast

D–Pepperoni Pizza (Last week’s pizza w/ a cheddar sauce was very popular– the 4yo out-ate me!!)

 

Saturday:

B–Ham, Egg, & Fried Potato Skillets

L–Sandwiches, Oranges, Pretzels

D–Spaghetti, Green Beans (<– no meat in that sauce. I have a weakness for pulling tags from the giving tree at church and I always rationalize it by saying, “Oh, we can always eat spaghetti one more night.” That’s the night. ;) )

 

 

 

And that’ll do it!

 

What are you eating this week?
