Our Menu (Week of December 11, 2011)

I did well with last week’s menu, but made a couple of last-minute changes.  Therefore, I’m carrying over a few meals that got nixed last week.  This might be our most hectic week of the season so I’m counting on my menu to really help me.  My slow cooker will be my reliable sidekick and I chose a few things I know will have a good amount of leftovers for us to rely on.  Here we go!


Oatmeal with dried cherries, bananas, fresh-squeezed orange juice x 2

Cowboy sandwich, banana/strawberry/pineapple smoothies

Baked cinnamon and apple french toast, berries(because I still have half-and-half to use…how tragic:), hot cider x 2

Breakfast burritos (filled with skillet potatoes, bell peppers, onions, breakfast sausage and cheese), orange juice

Glazed cinnamon scones with cinnamon chips, fruit, hot cider


Leftovers x 3 plus fruit

Chicken salad sandwiches, fruit salad, yogurt

Texas toast grilled cheese, tomato basil soup

Peanut butter and freezer strawberry jam, apple slices, milk

Lunch out (Mommy-Daughter Christmas Shopping Day)


Chicken spaghetti casserole, salad, garlic bread

Potato cheese soup, rolls

Herbed slow cooker chicken, creamy rice, asparagus

Pot roast, carrots, potatoes, green beans

Dinner with Daddy (I’ll be out two nights this week so one night will be a special dinner out with daddy for Annalise)

Leftovers Night x 2


Pears, bananas, apples, grapes

Hummus and multi-grain crackers

Carrots, celery, broccoli, dip

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (from the freezer), hot cider

Freezer Cooking (I’m splitting up my freezer cooking this week.  I only have time for two or three freezer cooking items this week, but that’s better than nothing!)

Shredded chicken

Homemade pizza pockets


I didn’t put anything very holiday-ish on the menu, but I hope to get to that next week.  What about you?  Do you make specific holiday menu plans for the month of December?



  1. What is a cowboy sandwich? Sounds fun! 😉
    here is what we will be having:

    • Oooo, it is my idea of heaven. Basically, grilled buttered Texas Toast bread, slice of breakfast sausage, egg, cheese…then you slap it back onto the pan and grilled it all again. Are you disgusted? 🙂 Check out Pioneer Woman’s version…mmmm mmmm mm!

  2. Wow–your menu looks great! And I love your site design. How do you make your creamy rice?
