Menu Plan {December 18th – December 24th}

The last few weeks have been so busy for me that it is hard to believe that it is almost Christmas and almost 2012. I am not sure where this month, let alone the year, has gone.

The menu plan this week looks a little different than a normal week. This week is my birthday, yes I have a Christmas week birthday, and this means my husband is taking me out to eat at my favorite restaurant. I can’t wait.

We will be spending Saturday with family enjoying some time together. We decided to keep it easy this year and do finger type foods and desserts instead of a full meal for my husband’s family gathering. This is the first time we have done this, but I think it will work great and will keep any one person from doing the majority of the work.

I do plan to cook a nice meal of ham and potatoes for us to enjoy at home though and this will give us a few days of leftovers to enjoy the following week.

  1. We go to my moms for Christmas Eve and I host Christmas breakfast. It is always such a fun yet busy time of year. Definitely my favorite time of year.

    Happy birthday Lynn!

    Here is my menu plan for the week along with my weight loss goals and make ahead meal instructions
