menu plan monday – december 2, 2013

Le sigh.  Thanksgiving has come and gone all in the blink of an eye.  It was more of a success than I could’ve hoped and every dish turned out great.  I utilized an electric skillet, electric roaster, toaster oven and two slow cookers to cook our dinner and everything turned out a-okay.

Now it’s back to a somewhat normal routine as the hustle and bustle of Christmas draws near.

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week :

Monday : Potato Corn Chowder.  A nice, hearty bowl of comfort to start the week.  Sounds like a good idea to me!

I’ve selected Monday as a night of the week for our family to eat a meatless meal as it tends to be more budget friendly as well as a friendlier option for the environment. My meat and potato eating husband tends to go along with this idea because I also make him a yummy dessert in addition to his meatless meal. What can I say? I’m nice like that!

Tuesday : Barbeque Chicken Hash.  A quick and easy dinner that’s on the table in no time and brings the tastes of summer with it.

Wednesday : Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Baked Potato.  My husband will likely fall over when he see’s this on his dinner plate as he’s such a meat and potato type of guy.

Thursday : Slow Cooker Chicken Parmigiana Sandwiches.  A Pinterest find from last week that I saw making the rounds.  I can’t see any reason why it won’t be a success.

Friday : Pizza.  Nothing better than a pie with the Perfect Pizza Crust!  Even if we don’t have pizza on Friday, I love having all the ingredients on hand as it makes an easy meal no matter what night of the week it may be.

  1. Sounds like you had a large crew to cook for. Glad your Thanksgiving dinner turned out well. I made my 1st Thanksgiving dinner…ever. Hubby and son loved too.
    It’s going to be wicked cold in Vegas. low 40s during the day…low 30s at night That always puts me in the mood for comfort foods.
    Have a wonderful week.
