Meal Planning Monday: Dec 19, 2011

This week is going to be crazy, I can already tell.  The boys are out on Christmas break, but I still have school through Wednesday - and the nanny needs Tuesday off.  Yikes.  So we are expecting a bit of craziness and are mostly hoping just to make it to Friday in one piece.

We have decided to try something new this year, as we are working on creating our own family traditions now that we have kids.  We are going to go with making Christmas Eve dinner Lasagna.  The plan is that we will make it and then have left overs for Christmas evening, when we are all worn out from having done Santa in the morning, lunch with family friends, and arriving home worn out and in need of something warm and not in the cookie family.

So in progress we have:

Monday: Korean Lettuce Bundles (we never managed to have last week)
Tuesday: Eat out - all the kids will be together :)
Wednesday: Stir Fry - chicken w/ black bean sauce and broccoli
Thursday: Cheddar Grits with Black Eyed Peas and Spinach
Friday: Pizza night.  Homemade, of course!

Christmas Eve: Lasagna w/ a green veggie (asparagus, I think), salad and homemade bread
Christmas Day: Lunch with friends, left overs from last night

We recently purchased our first ever bread machine, so if any of you have advice or recipes for a bread machine - please, leave a message!
