Menu Plan Monday | December 20th

This in the plan for dinners at our house this week.  What’s on your plan?

Monday: Spaghetti & Meatballs
Easy dinner since homework goes late at our house on Monday’s after Logan’s play practice.

Tuesday: Smoked Sausage, Carrots & Potatoes
I sautee diced Smoked Sausage, Carrots & Potatoes all in one pan.  Easy dinner with easy clean up!

Wednesday: Chili
My hubby’s family is coming for Christmas.  I’ll be making this a day or two in advance.  Chili is always better the next day!

Thursday: Leftovers
Easy dinner before we head downtown to see the Nutcracker.  I’m so excited!!!!  I won a voucher for 2 tickets.  I guess I’m eating my words and taking my boys since I found out that student tickets are just $15 if purchased 2 hours before the show. So it will be just $45 for all 5 of us to go.    If you’re planning to go but haven’t bought your tickets yet there are still other discounts available too.

Friday: Hungarian Goulash
Christmas Eve here with my family.  This is a family favorite dinner!  It freezes very well.

Saturday: Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings
Staying home all day Christmas day in our  PJ’s, taking our time opening presents and playing with all the new toys! This great crock pot dinner can be assembled the day before and kept in the fridge until it’s time to get it started cooking.  I add carrots and celery to make it a one dish meal.

Sunday: Party with close family friends
Last Christmas gathering and this one’s not at my house.  I’m taking this fabulous Caramel Apple Pie and toppings for the homemade pizza we’re going to make together.

Do you menu plan?  It’s a great way to save time &money!
