This is going to be a busy week with several out-of-the-house activities and much holiday prep going on at home. How is your Christmas prep coming along? Please tell me I’m not the only one who still has lots to do!
We finally got our tree up last night but it’s not decorated. That’s on my agenda for today, along with finishing my Christmas letter.
- homemade macaroni and cheese with caramelized onions
I have a piano lesson at 4 and a meeting at 5:30. I plan to make the cheese bread and the soup before I leave the house. I’ll then transfer the soup to the crockpot to keep warm so we can eat as soon as I get home from my meeting.
- vegetable soup
- Lisa’s Cheese Bread
I was looking through my recipe list here on the blog for ideas and realized I haven’t made Gallo Pinto in ages. In fact, I’m not 100% certain I made it again after I posted the recipe. It’s easy and delicious so I’m putting on the menu this week. Hopefully I can find a ripe avocado for an easy avocado salsa.
- Gallo Pinto
- fresh avocado salsa
- tortilla chips
We have a Christmas program to attend this evening so we need something super quick and easy to eat before we go. This is my go-to meal for that purpose.
- grilled cheese sandwiches
- homemade tomato soup
We’ll probably go out to listen to some live music but we’ll enjoy a nice dinner at home first.
- baked bbq chicken
- whiskey glazed carrots
- garlic mashed red potatoes
- green beans
So, what’s on your menu this week?
