Meal Plan Monday - After Christmas Special

I had originally planned not doing a meal plan this week, but then I decided that it might be best to at least have a few meals in mind for later in the week.

We've been celebrating Christmas since Saturday, December 21 when we opened presents at our house, just the three of us.

Did you get a chance to check out my guest post over at Earning My Cape on Friday?  Hurry over now to see how we make reindeer for Rudolf and his pals.  You have just enough time to whip up a batch with your favorite kiddo for Santa's visit tonight.

Sunday - Tuesday - Visits with family

Wednesday - Panko Crusted Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta, Bread
I've got all the ingredients for this at the house, which will mean I won't need to run to the grocery store.  There will be some kind of vegetable too, but I'm not sure what yet.

Thursday - King Ranch Casserole, Salad
Every time I run across a picture of this, I want it again!

Friday - Slow Cooker French Dip with Horseradish Aoili, French Fries, Rolls, Salad
We really enjoyed this the first time I made it and I know my husband will love having it again.  The 8 year old loved it but had a difficult time chewing, so I've got to remember to cut his portion in to tiny pieces.  (He has a textural issue with beef sometimes).

Saturday - Slow Cooker Chicken Black Bean Tacos, Cilantro Lime Rice
These look like a big hit with everyone.


  1. I've been meaning to do a meal plan on my blog but wasn't sure what exactly to write! This gave me an idea!! Happy Christmas to you & your family! :)

  2. Good Afternoon Laura, I am sorry I have not stopped by to leave comments recently, but life took over and we had a few sad moments, so I was unable to take the time to leave comments as I usually do, but I wanted to take the time to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas. With warmest wishes, Daphne
