After Christmas Menu Plan

Christmas in our family is tomorrow.  My little man was with his dad for Christmas this year. I'm antsy.  I'm really ready for him to be home, to hug him and know that he's sleeping in the room down the hall.  I'm ready to know he's home safely.  I'm ready to see his face light up tomorrow morning when he comes downstairs.  I'm ready for my little man to be home!  I think these last 2 hours will probably drag on!  In anticipation of his arrival home, I got up this morning and made cinnamon rolls, 3 batches of cookies, and then spent the day finishing his last Christmas present at the sewing machine.  Now, I'm ready!  While I wait for the clock to keep ticking by, I thought I'd work on our plan for the week.

Monday: Picking something up for dinner
Tuesday: Christmas dinner: prime rib, spinach souffle, green beans, and cookies for dessert
Wednesday: Chili Cheese Dogs while we watch the football game!
Thursday: Pasta with Pancetta and Leeks
Friday: Pizza and movie night

I think we have something every day after school this week.  Nothing major, but its going to be a busy week!  I also have to get working on sewing Christmas presents.  I'm hoping to have the energy to do some sewing a couple nights after my little man goes to bed, we'll see!

Here's the plan for the week:
Sunday: Honey- Walnut Prawns
Monday: BBQ chicken soup
Tuesday: Chicken Fajita Crescent Braid
Wednesday: Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry and Pot Stickers
Thursday: Tortellini with peas, parmesan, and proscuitto

Weekly Menu Plan 12/5

Report cards are done, and we're in the home stretch toward Christmas Vacation!  Two weeks left, and then 2 weeks off.  I plan to do lots of sewing and crafts those 2 weeks.  I'm looking forward to it.  This week, there's not much on the calendar.  The one thing I am looking forward to is taking my little man to see my Godmother at the local book store for her "slipper stories" its a great family tradition!

Here's the plan for this week:
Sunday: Tomato Fennel Soup and Grilled Spinach and Cheese Sandwiches
Monday: Swiss Chard and Chicken Pie (I'm going to make mini pies)
Tuesday: Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Wednesday: Macaroni and Cheese and Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Thursday: Black Bean and Rice Quesadillas
Friday: Homemade pizza
