Menu Plan {December 16th-22nd}

I can’t believe that 2012 will be over in two weeks. The last few weeks have been really busy and December seems to be going by so fast.

This week however, I think is a little slower for me, well except for the fact that my birthday is this week. However, the older I get, the more my birthday seems just like any other day. For some reason birthdays get less and less exciting the older I get.

December birthdays can be a bit crazy though, but this year I have a relaxing day and some time off planned. Or at least I hope it goes as I have planned.

A few years ago we actually discussed December Birthdays and it was fun to read through the comments and hear what others thought of birthdays in December. If you have a December birthday or have a child with a December birthday, you should read through the comments. There are a lot of great ideas for making it special.

Here is this week’s plan.


Pancake Muffins – I just restocked the freezer with a big batch of these.

Eggs and Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins- Recipe coming soon

Yogurt and Cranberry Scones– I will be sharing a gluten free breakfast scone soon



Cheese Taquitos and Mexican Rice

 Sweet Potato Soup

Crock Pot Bean and Sausage Soup

Taco Rice Dinner


Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry 

Bacon Pizza

Baked Beans

  1. Hey Lynn, I was going to add a cranberry recipe to my menu but decided against it since they are typically sold seasonal and hard to find fresh while after holiday season. I rarely ever see them frozen , do you get your cranberries from the local market?

    • I have seen them this time of year in some specialty type grocery stores, but you are right, they are easier to find around Thanksgiving.

  2. Lynn, I love your meal plans. They help me out a lot and give me new ideas. Thanks for sharing them!
