Weekly Menu - the countdown to Christmas

I'm working on putting our Christmas menus together.  All of the different events and activities that require food all coming to an end on Christmas day with dinner!  BUT, before that happens, we still have to eat dinner for a few weeks.  I'm working really hard to plan meals around events so that we don't spend money we don't need to spend on eating out.  (Even when it would be so much easier HA!)

Here's the plan for the coming week.

Friday - We are going to a Bethlehem Village that is set up by another church in the area.  They will have food (like chili) available so I'm just going to make Tacos - it's easy and "light" so if we want food later, we won't be stuffed.

Saturday - Today is Christmas Tree day!  Before kids, we always had lots of snacks to eat while decorating.  I've learned that with kids, they just want dinner HA!  I want something easy!  So . .we are going to grab something while we are out (Now, that's easy!)

Sunday - The boys and I are going to my mother-in-laws church for her Christmas program and then eating dinner at her house.  Sunday evening, I'm going to try a new pasta dish!

Monday - Tortillini and Sausage Soup.

Tuesday - Chicken Enchiladas

Wednesday - Tonight is Awana so I'm planning on the boys and I eating out :-)

Thursday - Chicken in the crock pot, potatoes and veggies
