Menu Monday – December 23, 2013
Time again for another Menu Plan Monday! Thank goodness for menu planning. With this busy holiday season, having a plan means never having to wonder what is for dinner. So much less stressful for for the mamma! 🙂
Heather is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family this week. The theme is “Entertaining.” The big entertaining I do for the season is a cookie decorating party. Basically we make a bunch of cutouts and frosting, put out my crazy sprinkle stash, then people drop by throughout the day to frost-till-they-drop. It is totally fun! I love watching the creative ideas that the kiddos come up when cookie decorating. I like to have Taco Chili and Chicken Wild Rice Soup in a couple of slow cookers in case people are here over lunch and/or supper. Cookie decorating with our friends is one of the things my kids look forward to every year! I’ll do a full post on hosting a cookie party this weekend, if you are interested. It is really quite simple and a lot of fun.
Freezer cooking this week: No freezer cooking this week. I will be using things from the freezer this week to fill out my meals this week and next week as needed. Time for mom to relax with the family! 🙂
Monday: Slow Cooker Island Pork Roast (from the freezer) with salad
Tuesday: Christmas Eve! Herbed Roast Beef, Swedish Potato Pudding, Lingonberry Sauce, Fresh Spinach Salad, Cranberry Relish, Rice Pudding, and Cut-Out Cookies. We will also have gluten free Lefse and gluten free Swedish “Rye” Bread at the meal.
Wednesday: Christmas! Caramel Pecan French Toast Casserole with Homemade Turkey Sausage and fruit
Friday: Thai Thighs (from the freezer) over quinoa with salad
