Menu Plan for the Week of December 4

The holiday season is in full swing! This week Kate has two Christmas programs on the same day.  We also have a Christmas party/cookie swap on Saturday, so Kate and I will be making some cut-out iced sugar cookies for that.

This year I have started a new tradition that I picked up from Life as Momthe Christmas Countdown. Every day until Christmas we have a special holiday-related activity to get ready for Christmas: some items include setting up the nativity, watching holiday movies, shopping for Toys for Tots, and looking at Christmas lights. On Monday, our Christmas Countdown activity is eating dinner backwards.  That means dessert first followed by the entree and sides, and ending with salad.  I think Kate will like that, especially since I have a special strawberry cake in the fridge: my Mema's recipe.

Our menu plan, including breakfasts and lunches, for the week is as follows:

Cinnamon pancakes (from the freezer)
Oatmeal with fruit
Yogurt, granola, & fruit
Scrambled eggs with cheese & salsa

Turkey & cheese sandwiches or roll-ups
Bean & cheese quesadillas

Sunday: Leftovers for lunch; Rib-eye Steaks with Mushroom-Onion Sauce, Broccoli & Cheese, and Corn

Monday (Dinner Backwards): Dessert--Mema's Strawberry Cake, Roasted Herb Chicken with Carrots & Potatoes, then Salad

Tuesday: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Salad, & Whole Wheat Breadsticks

Wednesday: Dinner at Kate's Mother's Day Out/Christmas Program

Thursday: White Beans & Cornbread

Friday: Pizza Night!

Saturday: Christmas Party! 

What are you eating this week?

Blessings to you & your family!
