Menu for the Week Dec.8-14

>> Saturday, December 8, 2007

Finally got my menu plan done for this week. Our menu weeks generally run from Saturday - Friday so Menu Monday doesn't really work well for me. Anyhow here ya go -

Sat. - Chicken burgers, veggies & dip
Sun. - Spaghetti (homemade sauce), Garlic bread & Salad Meatloaf, Mashed Taters & Veggies
Mon. - Crock pot Cheesy Chicken, Noodles & Steamed veggies Spaghetti (homemade sauce), Garlic bread & Salad
Tues. - Beef Stew & Homemade Rolls (make extra rolls for tomorrow night) Fried Egg Sammies
Wed. - Meatloaf, Mashed Taters, Corn & RollsCrock pot Cheesy Chicken, Noodles & Steamed veggies
Thurs. - Leftovers
Fri. - Crock pot Sausage & Meatball Hoagies (leftover homemade sauce & Hoagie rolls)

That is the plan anyhow. I do have some quick meals always on hand, like pancakes or Soup & grilled cheese if something comes up, or if I get too tired or sick to make a big meal. Have a great week!

This is the second year our family has done the 25 days of Christmas.  What I do is try to plan something fun for us as a family for each day from December 1st through the 25th.  Sometimes things don't go as planned, like last year there was no snow for a sleigh ride at christmas time, so we improvise and come up with something fun to do.  :)
Here is this years list.

  1. Make Advent Chains
  2. Put up and decorate the Christmas tree
  3. Write Letters to Santa
  4. Christmas movie (Dennis The Menace Christmas), Popcorn & Hot chocolate
  5. Family Game Night
  6. Read a Christmas story before bed
  7. Christmas Family Dance @ School
