Menu Plan December 21 - 25th
Time is flying... I don't know where the days go sometimes. Tim has been working every day and night until 10ish, and all weekend as well. I am somewhat tired and certainly ready to have him home for a bit! Our holidays are going to be a bit different this year. I have been home with my family every Christmas, for my whole life. We had lots of traditions and I really enjoy spending Christmas eve and morning with them. Then we would spend Christmas afternoon, supper and evening with Tim's family. This year, we are staying home for Christmas day! It will be different, but good, as we decide what traditions to keep and what to do differently, changing and revising our plan every year. We will visit my family on Boxing Day. Kathryn and Tim will also be here to spend Christmas eve and Christmas morning with us which will be very special.
Here is the menu plan for the week which for some reason, was really hard to come up with this week!
Monday: We ended up getting Wendy's.... lack of menu planning and busyness caused this!
Tuesday: Homemade pizza, which I didn't get to last week. I will be using this recipe for the crust.
Wednesday: Omelets and hash browns
Thursday: Chicken Fricot (a dish I have never tried before, but was recommended by a friend, and thought I'd like to do something easy and different for Christmas Eve!)
Friday: Christmas dinner with the in-laws
Instead of the BLT guacamole I was supposed to make for the potluck last week, I made the Appetizer Wreath suggested on Laura's blog. It was so easy, and delicious AND pretty! A huge hit, and I will definitely be making it again, either for Christmas dinner as an appetizer, or next year!
