Menu Plan Monday

Another Monday has arrived.  Is it just me or do they come around way too quickly these days?  I have LOTS of Christmas crafting left to do, so I think the time is seeming to go by especially quickly.  This week's meals will have to be fairly simple because I don't have a lot of time to be cooking meals. 

Monday - Shepherd's Pie with Turkey (carryover from last week)
Tuesday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Potluck at church...I think I will bring chili or soup/stew
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Homemade pizza with sauce
Saturday - My husband's great aunt's 90th birthday party...someone else is cooking.  :)
Sunday - Visiting family, which means another night of not cooking.

Breakfasts will be smoothies, cereal, toast with almond butter, muffins, and yogurt with banana and wheat germ...the usual.  :)
Lunches will be leftovers, more smoothies, raw cookie dough (uncooked oatmeal, heaping spoonful of almond butter, dash of vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon, and drizzle of maple syrup), PB&J and salads.
So this week isn't too bad...the chili takes more simmering than prep and our shepherd's pie will be the most labor intensive.  Hopefully I've made it easy on myself.  :)  I have Christmas baking to do too.  Oy!  Anyone else feel a little behind this year?  :)

  1. Your menu for the week looks very good. I just love our Church Pot Luck, always such good food. Thank you for sharing and you have a great week!

  2. Yum the raw cookie dough sounds great! I'm headed to the store in a few minutes to get my groceries I'll need to add almond butter! Thanks for the tip. Lucky you though, not a ton of cooking at least so you can concentrate on your cookies! We have our swap on Sunday I STILL don't know what I'm going to make.

  3. I also feel a little behind this year. It always seems like the last 2 weeks before Christmas just race by. There's so much to do!
