Weekly Menu - The One with Christmas and Nate's Birthday

Welcome back.  I'm kind of amazed that it's time to think about Christmas Food.  Josh asked me recently what we eat for Christmas - he saw a cartoon that talked about special food and, had to find out what we eat that is special.  I did a lot of baking this past week so we have lots of fun Christmas goodies for the week and are looking forward to a wonderful holiday week.

Friday - Goulosh, Green Beans and Rolls

Saturday - Tonight we are going to eat out.  We want to take the boys to do their Christmas shopping and then drive around to see the lights.

Sunday - Today is Nate's actual birthday.  I'm going to mix it up a bit and make Chicken Nuggets and Fries ;-) That will make him happy :-)

Monday - I'm not sure yet - it is going to be a "Freezer/Pantry" meal.  With Christmas Eve and Christmas, my grocery budget needs a break so I'm trying to just shop from home for most of the week.

Tuesday - Christmas Eve :-)  It is our tradition to have snacks in the evening but this year I've had to get creative due to Darryl's stomach issues.  Plus I wanted stuff the kids will actually eat ;-)  So, we are having "tea sandwiches" - PB and J, Egg Salad, and maybe Tuna.  (I'll cut the crusts off and cut each into 4 . . .they will be cute.), Cheese, Crackers and Pickles, Fruit and Dip, and Christmas Goodies!

Wednesday - Breakfast is always special . .. .well, as special as it can be with two toddlers HA!  Unless something changes drastically with Darryl's stomach, we can't have our traditional food so, at this time, I'm planning Waffles, Sausage, and a nice fruit bowl. Christmas Dinner!  Ham, Cheesy Potatoes (and a Sweet Potato for Darryl), Pioneer Woman Green Bean Casserole, Roasted Carrots,

Thursday - What is best the day after a holiday?  Leftovers, of course!
