Menu, Week of 12/18


Okay, we have made it down to the final week before Christmas. I am so not ready, and not yet recovered from the big brake repair bill. But I get paid on Wednesday, and I have some time to spend at home finishing projects since I have no money left to spend until then! In the meantime, I am just about sick of trying to figure out what to make for dinner using ingredients that I already have in the house. Thank goodness that is almost over.

I am having my family over on Christmas Eve, because my children go to their father’s house at 10:00 AM Christmas morning, so I have a bit more planning than usual this week.

Sunday: Omelet, hashbrowns

Monday: Salmon burgers, sweet potato fries

Tuesday: Pizza, baby carrots

Wednesday: Paella, tomato and cucumber salad, steamed broccoli

Thursday: Sloppy joes, baked beans, ginger glazed carrots

Friday: Chicken with almonds and green olives, sauteed kale with garlic, pan-fried potatoes

Saturday: Greek style vegetable risotto, Salmon with Lemon, Capers and Rosemary, lima beans cooked with olive oil and oregano, salad
