What to Cook for Dinner?
I can’t believe we are almost to Christmas. On this week’s menu plan I’ve included what we have for dinner this Christmas eve. It’s a super easy dinner our family loves to have each year.
A few years back we started having a snack type dinner for Christmas eve and everyone loved it. So every year we have a snack dinner for New Year’s Eve.
It’s an easy dinner for me to make. I do a big holiday dinner on Christmas so having the night off from cooking is nice. I only have to slice and place the items out on trays and everyone helps themselves, easy peasy.
The rest of the week we are having some yummy comfort food. I didn’t realize we had planned so many noodle dishes until I actually was typing this up. But we love pasta so I don’t think we will mind.
I’ve included a skillet dish for an easy dinner, as well as a breakfast for dinner too. Making easy meals for dinner leading up to a big holiday dinner makes it easier for me to get items made ahead of time. Which makes for a much less stressful holiday day.
