Holiday Week Menu Plan

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.

Menu plan with recipe links

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.

  1. We always do a snack dinner on Christmas Eve too! This is what we had growing up…I think my grandmother and aunts did this for the same reason you do…and now it doesn’t seem to be Christmas Eve without a big bunch of appetizers and cookies.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. I wonder how many people do the same? I also wonder if it’s a west coast thing since I know you grew up on the west coast. It is an easy way to serve dinner. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Erin!
