Menu Plan Monday, December 21st

Menu plan with recipe links

Can you believe we are just a few days away from Christmas! I know my son is getting really excited for the big day. This week we will be having easy to make meals. Then on Christmas eve, we will have our traditional snacky dinner. A snacky dinner is a combination of crackers, cheese, meats, vegetable sticks and fruit slices. It’s something we’ve been doing for years and something that my mom did when I was a kid. It makes for a super easy dinner for me and my whole family loves it too.

Here’s our menu plan for this week, 


Making hamburger at home not only saves money but they taste so much better too.

Hamburgers with Baked Fries

Chicken Artichoke Casserole over Egg Noodles with Salad

Pan Fried Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

Soft and Crisp Tacos, Refried Beans, Salsa with Chips, and Fruit

Snacky Dinner (crackers, cheese, meat, veggie sticks, and fruit)

Ham, Twice Baked Potatoes, Salad, and Rolls

Ham and Bean Soup, Rolls, and Salad



Leftover Most Days

Homemade Soup from Turkey Soup Kit with Butter Dips

Ham Sandwiches with Chips and Fruit




Toast and Eggs

Waffles, Eggs, and Sausage

Caramel Sticky Buns, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. We do the same thing on Christmas Eve…a snacky dinner! It’s fun to try a bunch of different finger foods, plus you don’t have to cook a big dinner two days in a row.

    This year I tried a new appetizer called Sausage Balls, and they were delicious! I think they might become a new yearly addition to the Christmas Eve feast 🙂
