Whew! What a holiday week! We ate and visited and visited and ate. We played games and slept in and reminisced with old friends and family. It was time well spent. And the good news is we haven’t long to wait for another nice long break. Something has shifted and I may even enjoy these holidays after all… but that is another post altogether.
Now that we’ve done with the feasting and fete-ing, we need to get back into a routine at least for a little while, but we’ve got a VERY full fridge and some weird bits to use up this week, so my meal plan will be tailored with that in mind.
Monday: turkey soup (planning to put the bones in the crock pot all day and then add the usual soup-y suspects in the early evening), green salad
Thursday: mashed potato pancakes, roasted brussels sprouts, green salad
Friday: homemade pizza, cut veggies
Saturday: Dinner Out! (Little Man has a birthday party to go to and a friend has an art opening.)
Sunday: homemade pasta, sautéed green beans, green salad
Lunchbox Treats: amazing leftover GF brownies from Angela Liddon’s The Oh She Glows Cookbook.
Adult Lunches: Cold Kickin’ Soup (Mama Bear here is still struggling. Cough, hack, sputter)
Here’s hoping none of your crew needs Cold Kickin’ Soup and that you find yourself coasting through the beginning of winter. Eat well, be well friends
