Menu Plan Monday... and a Holiday Meal Plan

I wanted to share the cookies and treats that I (and Jake and Drew) have been baking over the past week:

Pfeffernusse: Jake needed these for a holiday presentation for his World History Class (his group had Germany)- He actually got mobbed after class by people wanting another one! We also made Marzipan- not as good- I still have a jar of almond paste that I am going to use to make Kringle- maybe for christmas morning???

Pretzel Turtles

Chunky Twix Cookies

Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Oreo Truffles

Triple Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

Now on to the week....

Sunday: Spicy Asian noodles with Chicken, egg rolls (yum)

Monday: Salmon (from last weeks menu)

Tuesday: Out for Mexican? There are 2 new restaurants in town that I would love to go to- 1 is a traditional mexican cantina and 1 is a new pizza place. I want to try one of them!

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Crockpot 40 clove chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans. I wanted to like this recipe for the ease of preparation, but this meal was not a winner- the chicken had an odd texture to it and the garlic stayed pretty garlicy. While I like 40 clove chicken, I will still to roasting it in the oven!

Thursday: Scott cooks. Breakfast for Dinner. Egg sandwiches with bacon or sausage, fruit smoothies, hash browns with peppers and onions

Friday: Christmas Eve: Scott requested Butternut Squash Risotto again! (I, of course, would not argue).

Saturday: Merry Christmas. We are hosting the Thompson Family Christmas.
Appetizers: Shrimp cocktail, vegie tray, crackers and cheese,
