Menu Planning Monday – 12/11/17

This week is going to be a little busy. It might be the busiest of the holiday season actually – the last half of it anyway. It’s all fun and temporary craziness but I only have two dinners planned for the week. My lunches will consist of salads & leftovers. My favorite salad right now is spinach/kale, tomato, cucumber and Tyson buffalo style chicken strips with ranch. Another favorite is spinach/kale, fruit of some sort (raspberries, mandarin oranges, cherries, strawberries), feta, candied walnuts & a lemon vinaigrette (optional: grilled chicken).

Monday: Chicken alfredo – I’m going to try the Birdseye vegetable pasta for my plate (my family will get normal pasta). Should be…interesting.

Tuesday: Potato vegetable cheesy chowder

Wednesday: leftovers/fend for yourself – I need to swim that night but I also need to bake cookies for later in the week. (sigh) I’ll let you know what wins out.

Thursday: Small group so whatever is served

Friday: Work Christmas party. It’s appetizers and desserts so I’m hoping to talk The Hubby into going out to our favorite place for dinner before the party.

Saturday: In the morning is a cookie exchange at the church (hence why I have to find time to bake…). That evening we’re going to see the new Star Wars movie. At some point I really need to do my holiday baking but we’ll see how that turns out.

Sunday: Probably my baking day so Papa Murphy will probably feed us.

I hope the holiday season is feeding you well!
