Weekly meals Dec. 20 – Dec. 24

Meal updates from last week:
We really enjoyed the turkey stir fry and then slow cooker chicken cacciatore.  My husband and kids devoured the broccoli and cheese soup, I didn’t make the buffalo chicken Milanese because my mom invited us for beef stew.  This weekend we ate at home Friday, I made a family favourite of Thai chicken and broccoli with noodles.  Saturday we went to a small gathering and I took turkey pesto meatballs from @weelicious.  Last night we had a store bought rotisserie chicken with a large salad.  

This week we will be eating at home Sunday-Friday, for Christmas Eve I will be hosting my parents.  Christmas Day will be spent at my parent’s house.  I will share my eve, morning and dinner menus below.

Christmas Eve Menu

Christmas morning menu

  • Wife saver breakfast bake using: shredded hash browns, peppers, onions and mushrooms.  Adding eggs and cheese and baking.  This is a made-up recipe from my mother-in-law, but you can find a similar recipe here.
  • Christmas morning muffins from @nigellalawson
  • Fresh fruit

Christmas dinner menu

So far this holiday season I have baked four different types of cookies: chewy ginger molasses cookies, snickerdoodle kiss cookiesAndes mint cookies (I couldn’t find the Andes mints so I used After Eight) and Turtle stuffed shortbread from @dinnerwithjulie.  I don’t think that there will be anymore baking for the rest of the season, I have been really happy with all of the cookies I chose.  I have been gifting small trays of them for the last week.  I like to add some chocolates and gummy candies to all of the trays.  

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and happy holiday!
