Menu Plan Monday

It’s Christmas week, folks, and that means I will be spending lots and lots of time in the kitchen.  Shew!  I am tired already…but it will all be worth it when we sit down with family and enjoy the fruits of my and others labors.  After this week, I think I may be ready for a little kitchen downtime.  I love to cook, but it’s time for a few days rest after the Christmas hustle and bustle.  New Year’s weekend is looking like a good time to enjoy the fruits of other people’s (namely restaurants) labors. 

This week is jammed packed with candy, dessert, main and side dishes.  Here is what I have planned:

Monday: pizza night (might be a late work night, so I decided to keep it simple)

Tuesday: ham slices & roasted potatoes-I will probably also make hamburger stew for my dad and in-laws for Wednesday night.

Wednesday: Sausage bake & fruit

Thursday: take out of some sort-I start my holiday weekend that day and will spend it making candy for Christmas Eve.

Friday: Peanut brittle (recipe coming soon), divinity (recipe coming soon), chocolate pecan fudge, peanut butter fudge, sweet potato casserole (recipe coming soon), butter roasted potatoes (recipe coming soon), Faux Red Lobster cheesy biscuits (recipe coming soon)

Saturday: Salisbury steak, butter roasted potatoes, Cole slaw, Faux Red Lobster biscuits, Oreo pie

I also want to show off a couple of things that I did this weekend.  I made candy gift bags for my co-workers and a few other workers at the judicial center.

I also made an Italian Cream cake for C’s big family Christmas party which was held yesterday.


I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and gets everything that their heart desires!!
