Menu Plan Monday for December 8
A bright, sunny but very cold day here in northern New England. It was 2 degrees below zero when I got up this morning at five! Here's my menu plan:
MONDAY: Macaroni & Cheese, Asparagus, Coleslaw
TUESDAY: Spinach Calzones, 3-Bean Salad
WEDNESDAY: Veggie Bean Soup, Multigrain Biscuits
THURSDAY: Three-Cheese Spinach Roll-ups, Italian Mixed Vegetables
FRIDAY: Red Beans & Rice, Apple Salad
SATURDAY: Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Coleslaw
SUNDAY: (Our church is now going to a weekly -- rather than monthly -- potluck with an afternoon service to follow, to save heating the building twice on Sunday through the winter months, so my Sunday meal each week now through February will be for the potluck.) Vegetable Lasagna, Ranch French Bread, Dessert (yet to be determined, but yesterday I brought a Cream Puff Dessert that was such an overwhelming success, I may just do it again!)
If you would like to see menus which others have shared, head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie and check out the links. Usually close to 300 people -- sometimes more! -- share links to their weekly menus. You'll find some great ideas and often recipes too.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
