What's Cookin' This Week (Dec 20-26)?

Here is my meal plan for the upcoming week - what I have lined up for dinner from Dec. 20-26, 2010.   My parents will be in town for Christmas so I let them help me choose the dinner meals.

My dad wanted to order out a holiday ham and sides.  My mom wanted two meals from my cookbook.  So we're giving them what they want; after all, it's the Christmas holidays and I'm in the giving spirit!  

(Reminder: For my family, breakfast is usually a rotation of oatmeal, muffins, pancakes, banana or other fruit, cereal or toast.  On weekends, I will sometimes cook classic or new twists to french toast, egg casserole, a hash brown dish or more.  When I do, I'll share those here.  Lunch is usually leftovers, soup or sandwich.  Therefore in my weekly meal plans, I usually only concentrate on dinners and 2-3 snacks per week).

Monday, Dec. 20 - Sausage and Biscuit Casserole, side of mixed veggies.

Tuesday, Dec. 21 - Big Easy Chicken and Sausage Gumbo,  homemade cheddar-beer bread

Wednesday, Dec. 22 - Skinny Turkey Stroganoff (recipe is from my cookbook). 

Thursday, Dec. 23 - Man's Meat Pie (recipe is from my cookbook). 

Friday, Dec. 24 - Ham, mac and cheese, green bean casserole - takeout from The Honey Baked Ham Company

Saturday, Dec. 25Holiday Brunch Casserole for Breakfast.  (Note: I'm going to cut this recipe in half and lighten it up).   Dinner will be leftover ham and sides from the day before. 

Sunday, Dec. 26 -  Eat from my freezer - Mix it up Meat and Veggie Chili 

AND....Here are the snack and desserts I hope to make this week:
-Granola breakfast bread in my breadmaker, recipe is from The Bread Machine Cookbook

-Pumpkin apple butter in my breadmaker, recipe is from The Bread Machine Cookbook

-Almond Cheesecake Bars

-Gingerbread cupcakes

What are you making this week?  What are you looking forward to eating most for the holidays?

  1. Is the cheddar beer bread just a regular recipe or for the breadmaker? Sounds good. I think I'm gonna make this for Christmas morning -
