Menus week of 12/21
Sun, 12-21-2008 - 10:08am

Tonight we're having a roast, potatoes & carrots--all in the crockpot, plus homemade bread (bread machine). Gotta love those small kitchen appliances, lol!

Bean soup from a mix my mom gave me, homemade focaccia bread squares, grapes or apple slices

Garlic Beef Stroganoff (crockpot) over noodles, roasted broccoli, leftover homemade breads

Baked chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, zucchini

Spaghetti w/meatballs, green beans, homemade bread

On Christmas Eve, we'll be going to my sister's. My mom supplies all the food. I'll probably bring a plate of cookies.

Christmas Day--we're staying home. I don't really cook at all. Thank you, Mom, for her long-standing tradition of not slaving in the kitchen on Christmas; once she got married, she decided she was NOT going to do that! So I grew up thinking that was the norm and now it is for me too, LOL! So we're having more appetizer things that my kids have requested--toasted ravioli, mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, sausage & cheese w/crackers, chips & dip, whatever fresh fruit I have on hand.
