Menu Plan Monday — December 28

I hope everyone had a wonderful, blessed Christmas. We are finally about done with the leftovers at our house. How about you?

Monday — I expect to be at the car repair shop all day in the waiting room while we have a major repair done on our one vehicle. We will be eating a smorgasbord from the freezer and pantry. Somebody may even have cereal for dinner!

Tuesday — I have some cut-up chicken left over from what I prepared for the Christmas Day chicken pie (I'll share that recipe later in the week). I'm going to take advantage of that and make Chicken Spaghetti. I even have everything I need in the pantry already except for the spaghetti noodles.

Wednesday — It's my birthday! I may try to hold off going out to eat until Sunday and just kill two birds with one stone. It's been an expensive month. But a Dairy Queen ice cream cake would be nice (not the cookie dough kind). Hint, hint, for any Hubby out there reading. If we stay home, maybe we'll have Little Caesar's pizza.

Thursday — We're going to a New Year's Eve not-really-party but party at a friend's house. It's just some families from church getting together. But we're having food so I don't have to fix dinner, but I do have to take something. I'm not good with appetizer-type things, especially the ones that have to stay warm. I'm just good with the ones that you eat straight out of the oven, or cold. Any tips you have would be great.

FridayBeef Stew, if I can talk Hubby into manning it while the girls and I go get our hair cut. It has to simmer for a few hours and then the vegetables have to be in for an hour or so to get tender.

Saturday — Leftovers.

Sunday — Eat out since we ate in all week, and of course for my birthday!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs.
Frozen Meatballs, a can of jellied cranberry sauce and a jar of chili sauce. Stir the sauces together and pour over the frozen meatballs in a crockpot. Heat for 2 or 3 hours on high, stirring occasionally.
Happy Birthday!
Sorry about your car.
No, still have leftovers. I think I'm going to boil the ham bone, make Great Northern Beans and cabbage for New Year's Day.
Enjoy your week.

Maybe try a black bean and corn salsa with Tostitos Scoops chips?

What? No black-eyed peas on New Year's Day?! You are officially a Northerner:)))

Oops, forgot about black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. I may have to rethink that now. Maybe black-eyed peas for New Year's Day and make the Beef Stew for Saturday. Then we can have the leftovers on Monday and I already have one day next week done!

It seems car problems are a main topic on many blogs this week. We're without for a couple of weeks...again.
You have a terrific week and Happy New Year!
