Menu Plan–December 23

Christmas is almost here!!  We had our Christmas service at church this weekend and I am pumped to celebrate Christ’s birth!  In addition, my husband and I are officially on break. 

My course is all set for January, and my final grades were submitted this past week – so I’m saying hello to nearly 1.5 weeks of movies, books, and games. Anyone else going to see the Hobbit in the coming weeks? 

While we are on break, I’m not planning what to eat for lunches.  It will be YOYO!  And, our menu is here through the end of the year, since next week we’ll be doing the Countdown to 2013.  I do hope you’ll join us!

  3. I just recently found your blog because two of the sites I usually read are participating in your Countdown to 2013/Best of 2012. My own meal planning has been much more consistent recently, and I love seeing how other people meal plan, as well as what food they plan. Thanks for sharing! I have to say, I LOVE the idea of including "To do" in your plan, as a way to be ready for the next day. I may incorporate something like that in my own plans. Thanks!


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