Menu Planning Monday ~ December 19, 2016

I know, I know, it is a holiday week why should we worry about menu planning? Well, the holiday is actually on Saturday and Sunday, so you will still need a full 5-day menu planned for this busy week!

Last year I was busy planning freezer meals that kept my freezer stocked full of all the yummy goodness! This year, while I still have some freezer meals, I have mostly frozen meat in the freezer and all the fixings in the pantry. I can still simply throw all the ingredients into the crockpot in the morning and forget it, but I miss my freezer meals. I hope to refill the freezer after the new year!


Meatball Monday! I only say this for today. Meatballs are far and few between. Ray Ray does not like them yet everyone else loves them. So, we find fun ways to eat these, so Ray Ray can put his off to the side. Right now, I have a bag of these big yummy premade meatballs that my mom grabbed for me. They are restaurant quality and we LOVE them! This week we are going to be making Baked Spaghetti. (In place of the ground hamburger, we will be using the meatballs.) We like to call this Spasagna, yes Spaghetti and Lasagna mixed together. This is one of the meals that Ray Ray will eat the meatballs with, so we will see.


Every Tuesday is always Taco Tuesday. This Tuesday is no different. We will be following the same recipe we have always been using and can't wait to keep up with this tradition!


I really want a good pulled pork sandwich, so why not make one right here at home! I am excited to try this Root Beer Pulled Pork recipe! How could this not be good? I hope it turns out as good as it sounds!


A few weeks ago, Daddy had a deer fly into his window. Yes, it was a great thing. Only, we got some venison meat out of the deal! It has been awhile since I have made anything with fresh venison and I am looking forward to making this Venison Cheeseburger Soup! Cheeseburger Soup just sounds amazing in and of itself, but being we are in the middle of winter, and rich, creamy soup sounds amazing!


Friday Pizza Night! This is something that comes and goes. We love to sit around pizzas and hot wings. Well, mommy and daddy enjoy the hot wings. We find a good deal on the pizza in town and make it here in the pizza oven. With the busy weekend ahead of us, this seems to be a fitting end to the week.

I have no plans for Saturday or Sunday. Well, actually Sunday morning I do plan to make this Easy Breakfast Casserole. We love to make it every Christmas morning. This is something that we can throw in the oven when Gaga stops over, by the time we are done with the present opening this is ready to eat! What a great plan!

What are you eating this busy holiday week? I would love to hear some of your favorites!

    1. Do you make yours in the crockpot? I had never thought of it until I tried the recipe on a busy Tuesday, now it is the only way we will make them!
