Menu Plan Monday 12/23 - Merry Christmas!



If I could give you a bit of menu planning encouragement, this is one of those weeks during the year when you have a million things to get ready for Christmas, in two days. I know that the last thing you want to do is sit down and menu plan, heck I feel the same way! If there ever was a week when you NEED to menu plan, this is the one. Without a plan, my tendency this week would be to wait until dinner time and throw something together. Trying to pull together a decent dinner while everyone is hungry, cranky, and tired (including myself) is a recipe for disaster! Before we get to my plan for the week, here's what I've been up to lately:



Andes Mint Cupcake-tini & $100 Dollar Tree Gift Card Giveaway!
Such an easy way to serve cupcakes, these would be perfect for New Year's Eve







Bubbly Cranberry Punch
This punch uses canned cranberry sauce - yum!







....and here's my Christmas week menu plan:




Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps








We always go over my mom's house before church and have meatball sandwiches for dinner. For lunch, we're having:

Tomato Pumpkin Bisque




Cheddar Parmesan Bread








Merry Christmas!
Christmas Morning Breakfast:

Tomato Mushroom Oven Omelette




Glazed Doughnut Muffins




Chocolate Eggnog




Christmas Dinner at Mom's







Cheesy Stuffed Pepper Casserole








Ranch Chicken Enchilada Casserole








Ranch Pesto Rigatoni Bake








Leftovers
