Menu Plan Monday: 12 21 09

This week is Christmas. I cannot even believe that. Where has this year gone? Wow! Well, before I get really introspective, I better just plan the week.

Monday: Niece, Nephew, and Nanna over for dinner: Crispy Baked Chicken, pasta ribbons, green beans, fruit, and some yummy dessert – haven’t decided on that yet.

Tuesday: Leftovers – there will be some left over from Monday, plus we’ve still got some from last week. Need to make some room for what’s coming!

Wednesday: It’s Daddy day. Daddy has the day off so he’s staying home with the Mags all day. Not sure what kind of trouble they’re going to get into during the day. That being said, I think I’ll ask hubby dear to turn the crockpot on for me while I’m at work: I’ve got a roast to pull out of the freezer.

Thursday: Christmas Eve: Heading over to my brother and sister-in-laws for some festive times. She is sharing her family traditions from growing up with us this year. She’s Italian. It will be YUMMY!

Friday: MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I’m going to do a pork loin using this new Paula Deen recipe I got from her magazine. It has become a huge family favorite. I’ll share it with my tweaks later this week. I think I’ll also do some green beans that I saw in another of her magazines, my mom’s bubble bread (a family favorite that I’ll need to share), and maybe some potatoes.

Saturday: MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Round 2 Hoping to do Christmas with my husband’s sister and family – haven’t confirmed yet. If so, it will be the full turkey dinner. If we’re not doing the full dinner, I may cook a turkey anyway. I want the leftovers!!

Sunday: MERRY CHRISTMAS Round 3 (or 2): Heading over to my mom’s for the big family gathering. I’ve not been assigned anything yet, but I’m assuming pies. Pumpkin Pie and Shoe Fly Pie to be exact. Maybe some Scotcheroos.

It’s going to be a fun week – both with food and family.

Now, if I can just get my work to do list done by the end of Wednesday….
