Menu Plan for the Week of December 16th
|Frugal, Fun and Pretty Gift Wrapping|
I am thrilled to have 90% of my wrapping done and all out of state packages mailed! I’ve never been this close to done a whole week ahead of time. Usually I’m frantically wrapping on Christmas Eve, but this year, we’ll have 22 family members on Christmas day for dinner, and I wanted to have a few days ahead of time to clean, do some fun things with the kids and relax some.
(Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby’s choice)
(We like to add fruit and/or carrots to any of these “entrees”)
Pasta (my kids love it)
Macaroni and cheese
Vegetarian corn dogs
Chicken, turkey or ham sandwiches
Graham crackers and milk
Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches
Whole wheat toast
Yogurt or cheese sticks, crackers
Leftovers from dinner
Tuna mac and cheese casserole (this recipe is good even without the Italian seasoning) and raw veggies
Grocery list: box of macaroni and cheese, peas, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, can of tuna, raw veggies
Garlic wontons, rice and stir fry veggies
Grocery list: Ground turkey, shredded cabbage, wonton wrappers, soy or teriyaki sauce for dipping, rice and veggies
