This is the week of our annual Christmas party for our staff, which means I have a really busy week of cooking and baking, but I love spending time in the kitchen, so I will enjoy it.
It does mean though that I keep the menu plan pretty simple because I will be spending much of my time shopping, cooking, and getting ready for the party.
This is the week that if I had a pizza place or other restaurant down the street, we would be ordering in, but since I live out in the country far beyond pizza delivery, that is not an option, which is probably a good thing. So quick and simple dinners will have to do.
Here is our dinner plan for the week.
chili and cornbread
tamale pie ( using leftover chili)
spaghetti sauce from the freezer
