Menu Plan- December 26-January 1

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I had a very nice Christmas and enjoyed time with family and friends.

On Saturday I cooked one of our hams and it weighed about eighteen pounds. It was also the ham that would not get done. An eighteen pound ham takes a long time to cook, so dinner was a bit later than I had planned, but it all worked out fine and we had a really nice Christmas dinner.

And despite that fact that I sent ham home with everyone, we still have quite a bit left to eat this week. So, ham will be part of the plan at least the first few days of the week.


baked banana  oatmeal

yogurt and muffins

homemade granola

overnight waffles ( I am working on a gf version of these waffles for those in the family that need gf)



frittata with ham, fruit, and muffins

creamy ham and potato soup

ham spoon bread (new recipe) and salad

enchilada skillet (recipe coming soon)

potato pizza pie (will adapt to be gluten free)

mexican cheese soup ( new recipe)

  1. wow – sounds like you guys had a yummy meal! lots of ham leftovers are perfect for soups and breakfast dishes and dinner ones too. I almost like ham better than turkey leftovers just because it’s so versatile.

    I’m off to check out your potato pizza dinner.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. This year we started a new tradition of Christmas Breakfast and I made your Oven Omelet recipe. It was THE BEST thing I ate this holiday. Thank you so very much for the recipe!!

  3. Hi! I am visiting from MPM. Thanks for the yummy looking recipes. I am going to make your overnight waffles for tomorrow morning! Your potato Pizza pie sounds like something my children will enjoy. We’ll be trying that one too. Have a great day!
