Weekly Menu - The end of the Year

Wow.  That's all I have is, wow.  Ok, maybe not all I have but still, 2014 is done.  I must say that December has not been my best cooking month.  The kitchen was "out of commission" for about 3 weeks total plus we were out of town for Christmas - that left only a handful of days that I cooked.  January will bring much more cooking I do believe!  We usually stay home a lot in January after the busyness of December so maybe I'll get some new recipes made too! 

Here's our plan for the next week!

Saturday - I think we will still be at my parents.

Sunday - We'll be eating with the family :-)

Monday - Chicken and Dumplings - this was the plan before Christmas but then my kitchen was taped off for painting which limited cooking once again!

Tuesday - Chick Fil Lay Nuggets and Fries

Wednesday - New Year's Eve!  Our tradition is to have soup for dinner so we will have Chicken Noodle Soup (from the Chicken and Dumplings!) and than Easy Peasy Cheesy Broccoli Soup.  I'll also make some bread and Mac and Cheese for the boys. We have plans to go to a friends house for the evening and will have lots of finger foods/snacks.

Thursday - New Year's Day! I'm working this year (starting right now) on creating some tradition type things for holidays.  Of course, food is always a big deal so that's where I'm starting.  So, today, we'll have brunch - Sausage Gravy and Biscuits, Hashbrowns, and Fruit Salad.  Than, for "Linner" later in the day, I think that having something I can actually put together the day before (since I don't like cooking on New Years Day!) is the best idea so, Lasagna, Salad, and Garlic Bread will be perfect. 

Friday  - Tacos, of course!  :-)
