Especially during the Holidays, we try and stick to a dinner meal plan. I hate spending money on fast food when we could be spending it on gifts. Let’s stay on track of meal planning together!
December Weekly Dinner Menu: Week 1
This week we’re getting our Christmas tree over the weekend-YAY! That, combined with a “Breakfast with Santa” event and the town Christmas parade, made this weekend pretty busy for us. I’m hoping to have a night off of cooking near the end of the week so I can catch up on housekeeping. Hello, leftovers! 🙂
Sunday: Easy Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake and steamed broccoli. I’m a sucker for pasta in a cream sauce. We’re serving ours with broccoli but you can use whatever veggies you like.
Monday: Leftover Turkey Casserole. This looks like a great “comfort-food” recipe. Anyone else still have some turkey bits in the freezer from Thanksgiving?
Tuesday: Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops, served with steamed green beans and instant rice pilaf.
Wednesday: Taco Bake served with green salad.
Thursday: Leftovers served with thin-sliced tomato and cucumber salad.
Friday: Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken served with rice and steamed zucchini. TGI Friday’s used to have this amazing selection of menu items cooked in a Jack Daniels glaze. I’m hoping that’s what we’ll get with this recipe but crock pots always take some of the flavor out so we’ll see…
Saturday: Baked Chicken with whole wheat dinner rolls and steamed veggies. I’m not sure what veggies we’ll have that will still be good at this point, but I’m thinking it will probably be broccoli. We get a big pack of bakery whole wheat rolls at the store and freeze them for when we don’t want to cook another side dish for dinner, so that’s what we’ll be using here. My aunt has a fantastic recipe for dinner rolls that she just whips up, no big deal. My goal is to one day do the same, but that will probably have to wait until I’m not working two jobs and John finishes school…
