Menu Plan–December 5


The first week of December was a week of firsts:

first cookie baking with my family in five years,
first Christmas decorating of our house,
first Christmas tree purchase,
first Skype call with our far-away family,
first Festival of Christmas experience for my husband,
and first broken garage door experience! 
What a week!

Sunday, we enjoyed a brunch of
Buttermilk Pancakes and Apple-y Sauce


For dinner, we made Kentucky Hot Browns --

These are Frog Prince’s FAVORITE way to enjoy turkey leftovers. 

Monday night, we enjoyed Thanksgiving leftovers
{yes, we were still eating them up last week!}


Then, on Tuesday, we had my all-time favorite Broccoli Hot Dish
This time, I used our wild rice stuffing on the top. 


Wednesday night, I had some quick leftovers before heading to our small group, to which I brought these delicious Oreo Drops {recipe to come}. 


Thursday night we had a pot-luck at church; and I made the


I made the entire thing in the rice cooker,
and tossed in some turkey for a little extra protein.  Yum, yum. 

Friday night, we were treated to a delightful dinner, a Schomorgesborg, actually, of traditional Scandinavian foods before our Christmas concert!


Saturday night, we treated my folks to a nice dinner of homemade ravioli, served with crockpot spaghetti sauce, broccoli and garlic bread.


And, for dessert… Baked Fudge

That was for all their help with our house this fall!

This week is the final week of classes for Fall Semester!  At times, I’ve felt like the Little Engine that Could repeating to myself, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…”.  Oh, how delightful it is to see the light of beautiful Christmas rest that is ahead.

What are you cooking this week?


  1. What?! There is no rest for you, my dear co-PI! :) This week, we begin the effort to work through our pantry so our cupboards are bare as we leave for the holiday. We're whipping up Sopa Seca, omelettes and pasta. Perhaps something with bulgur, if I can ever find something that sounds good!

  2. Your pictures are great, and your new menu sounds delish!Happy St Nicholas Day!

  3. Busy week, everything looks delicious.

  4. Looks like a delicious week! Yum!

    I think that baked fudge recipe would be a perfect addition to This Week's Cravings theme!

  5. As always, your menu sounds delicious! I'm especially liking the looks of those Oreo drops and the baked fudge. YUM! :)

  6. So much of this meal plan tickles my fancy. I've got to try the broccoli hot dish and the cheesy green beans and rice. Yum!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
