Menu Plan

Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

It is one of those weeks where it is tempting to take the week off of menu planning because there is a holiday this week. But it is the start of a New Year, so it is the perfect time to get back on track after the holidays. 

Even if you don’t make a full menu plan this week, I encourage you to plan at least a few meals to help you get back into a routine after the holidays. 

In the south or at least southern part of the US, it is common to to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day, but I am not a fan of black eyed peas. I really don’t like them at all and neither do some of my kids, so the are not on the plan this week. My husband’s family though loved them and ate them almost every year on New Year’s Day. Do you eat black eyed peas on New Year’s Day?

Here is this week’s menu plan.

  1. Here in Indiana you are suppose to eat cabbage and corned beef. Grew up eating it every year. Now I only eat it sometimes on New Years because no one else in my house likes either.

    • I have never heard of that one for the New Year. My husband loves corned beef and cabbage, so I usually make it sometime in March when it goes on sale. I like it once a year or so, but it is not my favorite. My husband grew up eating corned beef and cabbage though and loves it.

  2. I live in the south but skip the black eyed peas. Not a fan!

  3. I live in Florida, but am NOT Southern. I say thumbs down on black eyed peas, ham hocks and collard greens. We eat appetizer type food, wings, shrimp cocktail, junk food, same thing we eat on Christmas, basically unscheduled and unplanned except for the shopping ahead of time. But we always have little dogs (cocktail smokies either wrapped in bacon with brown sugar or wrapped in those cheap biscuits) on Christmas and New Year’s. Prime Rib on Christmas Eve. These are all once a year events, so the expense and the lack of health isn’t permanent!

    • I am glad to know that I am not the only one that doesn’t love black eyed peas, ham hocks, and collard greens! I like your list of foods much better. 🙂
