Christmas is getting really close now. We have our Christmas candy and cookies done and some of them delivered. 

I’m need to finalize what we’ll be having for Christmas dinner. So I can shop this week. Christmas eve will be a snack dinner as we usually have. 

But this week we’ll be having a few family favorites. My son loves hamburgers and we’ll be having hamburgers and homemade french fries too. 

We’ll also be having a few easy dinner too. Stir fry one night and soup another night. As well as using ham that we have in the freezer too. 

Over the weekend, we’ll be having caramel sticky buns. They are simple and easy to make but they are so good too. It’s a special breakfast we love to have on the weekends. 

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

Green Bean and Chicken Stir fry with Noodles

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



This easy breakfast recipe for Caramel Sticky Buns is the best. I made it for my family and it became a fast favorite of ours. I love that they don't cost much to make and I can serve it to our guests for a quick and easy breakfast.

Toast and Eggs

Waffles, 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 🙂
