Menu Planning for Christmas

Last week went well, with one notable exception - that pesky ice storm kept me out on the roads until 7:45pm! As I mentioned yesterday, I'm so glad my mom was able to pick up Sweetpea and keep her for a few hours, and that we all made it home safely. EmDee made it home about a half hour sooner than Sweetpea and I did, and he had soup and grilled cheese waiting when we got home - perfect! We backed the stirfry up to Wednesday and moved spaghetti to Friday. Our family dinner was Saturday, followed by a trip to our local HolidayFest. One other thing I was excited about was making a triple batch of meatballs for our spaghetti, and freezing a big batch of them!

On Christmas Eve, we have my family over for dinner and to open a few of Sweetpea's gifts. For Christmas, we will be eating at my mom's house. My famous grandparents and my brother, Sweetpea and EmDee and I will round out the group. The day after Christmas we will be heading over to EmDee's family dinner. Here's what's on the menu for the week:

Monday: Hamburgers and oven fries and green salad
Tuesday: Omelet Casserole toast with jam and pumpkin spiced lattes
Wednesday: Bachelor beef and noodles, potato salad, brussel sprouts
Thursday: Ham, wild rice casserole, green salad and sweet potatoes
Friday: EmDee's family potluck Christmas dinner

Looks like a great week... and that pumpkin latte!!! Yum. I'm attempting Rack of Lamb for Christmas dinner. Wish me luck. I'll be guided by my brother, Uncle Pirate-telephonically.

Glad you got home safely. We heard about the ice storms on TV.
I remember those nasty storms while living in Maine. They can be very dangerous.
Your menu plan sounds delicious.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
