Menu Plan Monday - December 19, 2011

Christmas is almost here!  With Wednesday being the last day of school, we're all excited for a break from the busyness and a chance to (really) focus on the reason for the season.  We're planning some dedicated movie nights (especially The Nativity Story) and some family game time by the tree.  At the end of the week, we'll be getting ready for our traditional "Happy Birthday, Jesus" party on Christmas eve.  With a full weekend of cooking behind me and another one coming up, I'll be keeping things simple this week.


- My Big Helper's leftover lasagna - yum!
- chicken corn soup, applesauce, Christmas cookies
- tacos, corn, applesauce
- chicken stir fry with rice and veggies
- chicken corn chowder

One day this week will be dedicated to making Christmas cookies.  I'm planning to make old-fashioned sugar cookies for My Big Helper's treat bags, big breakfast cookies for her school party, Ritz cookies, snickerdoodles, and the best chocolate chip cookies ever.  I'm not sure what else I'll get into.

For our party, we're making:
- smoky bacon cheeseball and crackers
- party ham and Swiss sandwiches
- fruit salad
- birthday cake
- Christmas cookies

For Christmas dinner, we'll have:
- turkey breast
- filling
- mashed potatoes
- baked corn
- new variety of green bean casserole
- fruit salad
- birthday cake

What's on your menu this week??
