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:



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



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.)




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




B–Cranberry Dark Chocolate Muffins, Vanilla Yogurt, Juice

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




B–PB Honey Oatmeal, Juice

D–Angelhair w/ Chicken & Mixed Veggies



B–Berry Cream Smoothies, Toast

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



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?
