Menu plan with recipe links


We are getting so close to Christmas now. Do you know what you are having on Christmas for dinner? I’m not decided yet. I thinking either ham or roast beef or maybe even meatloaf.

The artichoke chicken casserole is so good. If you like artichokes you need to give it a try. We also love the southwest chicken skillet. It’s one my kids ask for often and the leftovers reheat well too. 

I need to decide soon so I can go shopping. 

This week’s menu is an easy menu plan. We will be having chicken from the freezer a few times and a favorite of our family tacos.

I like to get my menu fairly simple this time of year. It makes getting dinner on the table so much easier. No need to have to stress about dinner when there is so much more to do. 

Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week

  1. We usually have ham for Christmas, because it’s my husband’s favorite. I prefer to have turkey myself, but I am usually outvoted 🙂

    Your maple bars look delicious…I love that they are baked, since I hate dealing with frying oil. I must try these out soon!

    1. I would make turkey for both holidays too. But my sister’s boyfriend can’t eat turkey. Plus we all like ham too. The maple bars are so yummy. You can make the dough the night before and place it into a bowl covered with plastic wrap and let it rise overnight. Then in the morning, punch the dough down and cut into bars. Let rise while heating the oven and bake. They are so good fresh out of the oven. 🙂
