Menu Plan Monday

Nobody panic! There are still 3 days until Christmas! LOL I was doing fine myself until yesterday. DH doesn't get paid until Christmas Eve, so guess what we are doing? Actually he can pick up his check at 6 a.m. so that isn't as bad . . . right? Plan is to pick it up, get last minute items and he wants to take me to breakfast at Shonneys - it's a southern thing :)
So I guess we all know that meals will be crazy this week, leading up to the big event on Thursday. This Christmas will be bitter sweet for us. It will be the first Christmas in a couple years that Grandma S and Grandpa D will be home and with us. Usually they spend the holiday in Vegas with their son. So that is the good news. The bad news is that they put their house on the market last Friday and are moving to Vegas after the first of the year. Bummer. So it will make our Christmas meal a little more sad, but I want to enjoy every last minute of it! We are hoping that when we go out west in Aug. we can stop for a couple days to visit them. Lets keep our fingers crossed, and lets take a peek at what our menu this week looks like . . .
Monday - Crock pot steak fajitas w/tossed salad
Tuesday - White chicken chili w/ cornbread and veggie sticks
Wednesday - Communion at church then home for finger foods, Reuben fondue, buffalo mozzarella cheese sticks, cocktail rye bread and crock pot apple crisp
Thursday - Honey glazed spiral ham/deep fried turkey, green bean almondien, mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberries, veggie/pickle/olive tray and pies - glorious grandma pies! LOL (who will make these next year?) sigh
Friday - Leftovers!!!
Saturday - Homemade pizza w/salad
Sunday - French onion crock pot soup w/ Bahamian crab & bacon rice

Please extend a warm welcome from our family to your grandparents from us. Many people find Vegas less expensive. We sure did.
Enjoy your breakfast with the hubby.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
