Well, friends…did you survive the holidays? We’ve got a party Tuesday and a big meal for New Year’s Day then it’s back to healthier eating habits for this household! Let’s take a look at this week’s menu.
- homemade vegetarian pizza
- tossed green salad
We are hosting a small New Year’s Eve party. It starts at 8 p.m. and I’ll have various finger foods, dessert, wine and champagne. I think we’ll just eat a salad before the party.
It’s New Year’s Day and that calls for a traditional meal. My dad’s birthday is Thursday so if he’s feeling up to it we’ll have my parents over for dinner and a birthday celebration.
- black eyed peas (maybe – none of us really like them but they are traditional)
- cranberry sauce
- mashed potatoes
- garlic bread
- casserole with leftover spaghetti sauce
Mexican food after church

With a new year comes a new menu plan. For the most part, I’m going to implement the following general menu plan:
Mondays: “Meatless Monday” – I’ll be experimenting with new vegetarian recipes and I’ll share the winners with you.
Tuesdays: “Taco Tuesday” – These will be vegetarian tacos; either made with black beans or lentils.
Thursdays: Another vegetarian or vegan meal unless we have lots of leftovers from Wednesday.
Fridays: If we don’t go out I like to do an “at home date night” meal. This is either something a little fancier or a favorite of David’s, such as spaghetti.
Saturdays: Cook’s choice.
Sundays: We like to eat lunch out after church and then just make something simple and light for supper.
