Menu Plan Monday - Christmas Week Edition!

I'm so excited Christmas is almost here!!! I had been so worried about how Christmas would be this first year of living in a Muslim country, but so far things have been going fabulously. The one hitch has been the lack of sausage for my Christmas stuffing, but I'm doing my best to try to improvise for that.

With Hubby home for the week on vacation and Christmas, menu planning took on a greater importance this week. I mean, am I the only mom who tells her kids to go fix their own lunches when Dad isn't around? (My kids are 11 and 13, I should mention.) This week I'm needing to plan out lunches as well - and chicken nuggets aren't gonna cut it! LOL!

So here's the plan:


Lunch - We'll be out finishing up our Christmas shopping, so we'll probably eat at the mall

Dinner - Chicken stir fry and rice


Lunch - Homemade Clam Chowder

Dinner - Meatballs & rice (frozen meatballs with a sauce made up of chili sauce and grape jelly - sounds odd, but it's delish!!)


Lunch - Tuna Waldorf Salad

Dinner - Sloppy joes and potato salad (stupid Christmas eve menu I know, but somehow it's become tradition)


Christmas Breakfast - Monkey bread (to die for!!!!)

Christmas Dinner - Roasted turkey with sausage, apple and cranberry stuffing, roasted garlic and onion mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, broccoli salad, tossed salad, devilled eggs, and for dessert a birthday cake for Jesus.

Friday (and for several days afterwards!!!)

Turkey sandwiches, turkey tetrazzini, turkey soup, turkey pot pie...LOL!!

And I was wondering why you had posted your menu. I was thinking it was SUnday today, even though I went to church yesterday... HELLO MCFLY?!
