December can be a very busy month with all the holiday activities. It’s all too easy to just give up menu planning and opt for takeout. However, I think it’s still worthwhile to make a plan each week, even if you occasionally have to abandon it and pick up a pizza. Keep your menu simple and save the more time consuming meals for January when there’s nothing going on and it’s too dang cold to go anywhere.
The week ahead looks pretty “normal” to me. A couple of meetings, David out of town once and hopefully a Saturday “date night”. We might even find time to put up the Christmas tree!
I have a meeting at 5:45 and David has one at 6:00. Dinner needs to be quick, easy and EARLY!
- tuna noodle casserole
David will be out of town so that’s always a good time for Chris and me to enjoy fish. And since it’s “Taco Tuesday”…
- fish tacos
- french fries
This is another night for something easy since we need to be at our church Advent service by 6:15.
- Cheesy Rice and Bean pie (vegetarian – recipe coming soon)
- tossed green salad
- chicken patties
- roasted zucchini with parmesan
- pasta with marinara
- turkey and noodles (from the turkey and broth I froze after Thanksgiving)
- homemade bread
We’ll eat Mexican food after church and just a light snack for dinner.
