With friends coming to visit on Tuesday night, a bunch more baking I want to accomplish, and Christmas dinner to plan, I thought a menu plan for the week would be a good idea. I do need to get a shopping list put together, and I will try to fit in a trip between basketball camp. And hopefully I can make this week a little less hectic!
Using my new Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, I plan to make Stollen and caramel rolls for Christmas morning (maybe a few gifts too!). Shopping for the holidays is finished, as is wrapping, so I feel as though I can enjoy the rest of the week. Which is good, because the kid’s excitement level is just about through the roof.
Here is my menu plan for Monday, December 21:
Monday: Pan-fried Petrale sole, sautéed orache, couscous
Tuesday: Hearty Winter-Vegetable Soup, grilled sausages from Prather Ranch, Whole Wheat & Flaxseed bread, salad
Thursday (Christmas Eve): Local crab, sourdough bread, green salad, cheese plate
Friday (Christmas Day):
- breakfast: scrambled eggs, bacon, sticky caramel rolls, Stollen, grapefruit
- dinner: roast beef (not sure the cut yet, will decide on Thursday!), roasted brussel sprouts, baked garnet yams, persimmon pudding
What is your food plan this week? Any special family foods you share at the holidays?
