Menu Plan Monday, December 7th

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 some Christmas cookie baking and candy making. I like to get all my holiday baking done by around the fifteenth, but it’s quickly approaching so I need to get busy. If you need a few candy or cookie recipes to give as gift take a peek at my Sweet Treats series.

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

Nut Crumble Apple Mini Muffins, 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!
