Menu Plan Monday 12/16 - One Week Til Christmas!

I'm not sure about where you live, but it felt like we were snowed in for most of the week last week! Sunday and Tuesday we were hit with two storms and then this past Saturday night we were hit with another one. I have to say though, it was actually kind of nice! I was fully stocked to get some baking done and Paul tired the kids out playing in the snow for hours. Wesley actually zonked out in his high chair during dinner - he's never done that before!

This week looks good though, only a chance of snow showers one day - hopefully the forecast will remain that way. I don't mind the snow as long as it's AFTER Christmas! Both my kids and my students at school look forward to the week before Christmas, me too!

Here's what I was up to last week in case you missed any posts:

Candy Cane Kiss Cookies
I'm not sure there are more festive cookies than these! Great peppermint flavor, too.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge
This microwave fudge uses instant pudding right in the mix, yum!

Cheesy Bacon Tortellini Skillet
You NEED to pin this one to your "easy dinner" board! On the table in under 30 minutes, too.

And... here's my menu plan for the week:

Crockpot Tuscan Bean Soup

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan

Copycat BBQ Chicken Snack Wraps

Skillet Tuna Cakes with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Tomato Pumpkin Bisque (freezing leftovers)

Deconstructed Burrito Pizza

  1. Just made these cookies tonight and they are delicious! This is going to be my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I had been searching for a recipe for soft, chewy cookies and have finally found it! Thank you for ending my search!
