Menu Plan Monday - December 7, 2009

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Bryan and the children went to Dull's Tree Farm today to cut down our tree. We'll decorate it on Monday night. It was too cold out for the little ones, so I took one for the team and stayed home to nap. Tough job, tough job.

The next couple weeks, as things seem busier than usual, I'm striving to keep things simple here at home. Dinners that cook themselves, paper plates if necessary, a few minutes each evening cutting clutter and tidying up to keep the house in OK shape.

Tomorrow I'll roast a couple chickens. Most of one will be eaten for dinner. The other will be used in menus throughout the next month (like this week's chicken fajitas). Part of my plan to free up some more time.

This week we'll be enjoying:

Monday - Roasted Chicken, Buttered Rice, Salad, Rolls

Tuesday (Homeschool Group, Horse Judging) - Franks & Beans (crockpot), Cornbread

Wednesday (AWANA) - Frozen Pizza, Mac 'n Cheese

Thursday - Chicken Fajitas, Chips & Salsa, Corn

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Sandwich Rolls
