Monday Menu Planning ~ Christmas Week 2013

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by! Follow me on Twitter or Facebook to get my posts direct to you, or you can follow me on Pinterest!

If you don't usually menu plan, this might be the week for you to jump in! Long before I started planned weekly meals, I would always plan Christmas Eve dinner. Our family has a twist on the traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner, which means lots of seafood. Due to the cost of ingredients I need to be sure to plan carefully. I save my plans from year to year, so I don't have to start from scratch -- just a tweak here or there. 

Here's my plan for this week!

Monday: Brown Rice & Black Bean Casserole
Make Ahead: Cookies (Chocolate Rolo Cookies, Cranberry Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, Jam Thumbprints), Spinach Dip and Cheeseball (the boys help with these!)

Tuesday (Christmas Eve): Appetizers (home made cheeseball, spinach dip, smoked salmon, cranberry goat cheese), Seafood Au Gratin, Kluskis with sauerkraut, Mixed Green Salad, dried fruit compote, rolls, dessert (gelato, cookies).

Wednesday: Christmas Breakfast Casserole, Munch on leftovers the rest of the day

Thursday: Black Bean, Kale, and Mushroom Enchiladas

Friday: Homemade Pizza night

Saturday: Pesto pasta tossed with veggies

Sunday: Ham, mashed parsnips and potatoes, green salad
