Menu Plan–January 6th

During the last two weeks, we enjoyed some delicious foods – some we only have one time a year.  Like, our NYE Taco Dip.

And, our Christmas Eggs.  This year, I made them with Greek Yogurt rather than sour cream and we liked them even better than the original. 

We also made four batches of Gingerbread Scones.  They are soooo good.  I'll likely make them again before the month is up.

In addition to our traditional Busy Day Soup and Chicken Chili, we also made a huge batch of Minnesota Wild Rice Soup.  Oh was that good on New Years Day. 

We also pulled out an oldie – Chicken with Peppers.  I forgot how good this one tastes and how simple it is to make.

Towards the end of December I tried a two-week menu plan for the first time, and it went really, really well.  Granted, it was the holidays, so the need to be organized was there, but I really enjoyed not having to plan after just one week!  So, I’m going to try it again and see how it goes.  I’ll post one week at a time, but know I’m planning two weeks out.
