Menu Plan Monday, December 2nd

Menu plan with recipe links

I can’t believe we are already into the month of December. It feels like this last part of the year has just flown right by. Does it feel that way for the rest of you too?

Since the busy holiday season is upon us, I like to keep our menu plans simple.

Keeping them simple allows me to have more time to do Christmas cookie baking and candy making. I like to get all my holiday baking done by around the fifteenth, but it will be here soon, so I need to get busy.

If you need a few candy or cookie recipes to give as gifts take a peek at my Sweet Treats series.

This week we will be using the freezer friendly meatballs in our hoisin meatballs dish. It’s an easy dinner that has an asian flare, not your normal meatball dinner.

Another dish we love is Thai chicken stir fry, it has a yummy stir fry sauce and is packed with vegetables too. It’s another quick and easy dinner recipe.

Because it’s been so cold here lately, we will be having a delicious soup.

This corn and potato chowder recipe is made perfectly delicious with the addition of a little bacon. But if you have ham in the freezer it would work great too. 

Here’s our simple menu plan for this week,

I know in the fall, when there’s newly picked apples to be had, I love to make apple recipes. There is just something about fall and apples. This mini apple muffin recipe is really delicious. I added a nut crumble topping to them to add a little crunch and extra flavor. This recipe can be made dairy and egg free too.

Toast and Eggs

Pancakes, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. The mini apple muffins look delicious. 🙂 Today, my husband made four loaves of homemade bread. He found a great YouTube channel that appeals to him, and the husband on that channel shows how to make bread several ways. My husband has been trying out some of their recipes the last few months, and we’ve been enjoying them. For dinner, I made homemade pizzas today, and my kids helped a lot with them. It was kind of nice! 🙂

    I hope you and your family have a great week, Shelly!

  2. I could really go for a bowl of that Potato, Corn and Bacon Chowder today! It’s pretty chilly today, and a nice bowl of soup would taste so good…and there’s nothing better than bacon!

    Speaking of bacon, I made one of my family’s new favorites for dinner last night…a Bacon Frittata. I first tried the recipe a few weeks ago and it turned out so well. I was afraid that it would be a flop, since I had never made a frittata before, but it was so good. It’s also nice because it just uses one pan, so clean up isn’t bad.

    Have a great week Shell!
