Meal Planning: Christmas Week

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 19, 2010 @ 2:00 pm In Meal Planning | 2 Comments


Is this really Christmas week? How did that happen?! I don’t think I’m quite ready for it.

I got some shopping done yesterday and have a few odds and ends left to pick up. But, mentally? No, I’m not ready.

Did you have FUN last week?

We did. We went to the snow in Mammoth for a couple days and had a great little break from the ordinary. The boys even had a short ski lesson, and FishPapa hit the slopes for the first time in a looooong time. The girls and I? We rode up and down on the gondola — many times — FOR FREE!

We ate really well last week, thanks to freezer meals [5]. I took them with us and we never had to eat out!


I hope that you were encouraged and inspired by last week’s Christmas Fun series [7]. Catch up and/or enter all the giveaways [7] before they close later tonight.

Good Eats this week

This week should be easy for meal planning. I’m going to make tamales one day this week. Yes, yes, I am. It’s a fun little tradition that we started the year FishPapa said “we” should learn how to make tamales.

Here’s my meal plan:

19. Turkey Sandwiches, Veggies, Chips

20. Hot Dogs, Green Salad

21. Pasta with Red Sauce [8], Biscuits, Vegetables

22. Take-out

23. Pizza Night [9]

24. Tamales [10], Enchiladas, Beans, Rice [11], Salad

25. Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Vegetables, Buche de Noel

What special meals have you got planned this week?
