Menu Plan {week of Dec 5th}

mpmchristmas

Only missed one meal off of our plan last week so it is a roll over this week since I already have all of the ingredients for it ;-)

We really liked the Veggie Chowder (kids ate mac n cheese instead as I am not ready to fight them over eating soup right now when I a still getting grief over casseroles) but both kids did eat and enjoy the Kings Ranch Chicken. Both of those were new to us recipes last week and “keepers.” The sausage au gratin was also a new to us recipe and Jas LOVED it and declared it a keeper right away- I may try to make it again with a homemade au gratin potato recipe to see if I can make it bit healthier then the processed box potatoes it calls for but it was good and full of veggies- the kids even ate it up! IN case you missed it I blogged Grammy Pinch’s “Judy’s Chicken” recipe here

Here is our plan for this week- it may look like repeats-from recent menus which it is–as I am heading into finals week and not feeling very creative– it will be a miracle if I keep to this plan this week- and if it were not for not wanting to bust the December budget I would plan some eat outs in there as well…LOL
