Weekly Menu - 12/23 thru 12/29

Keeping it simple during Christmas week:

Sunday and Monday: Spaghetti with Sauce (no meat), Buttered Corn, Garlic Toast from Homemade Bread.

Christmas Day: See below.

Wednesday and Friday: Baked Potato Soup, BLT Sandwiches, Chips

Thursday and Saturday: Pork Loin with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Butter Beans, Stir-Fry Veggies


For our Christmas meal, it's become something of a tradition to have
a spread of hors d'oeuvres* instead of a sit-down meal.
Here's what I have planned:

Christmas Egg Scramble
Cranberry Swirl Bread
Tropical Tea

Throughout the Day:
Peach-Glazed Meatballs
Gooey Pizza Dip with Chips
Hummus (store-bought) with Pita Chips (homemade)
Cold Cuts and Bread for Sandwiches
A Variety of Crackers
A Variety of Cookies
A Small Bit of Christmas Candy


A Little Thing To Save Money: This skill took me years to master, but whenever I think I've planned for just the right amount of holiday treats, I go back to my list and delete one recipe. :)
