Menu Plan Monday

This week is going to be another busy week indeed. As I have mentioned before, Friday is our family Christmas with all the kids and grand kids. There will be 8 adults and 5 grand kids. I have most my baking done and most gifts are all wrapped and under the tree. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone together. Please pray for safe travel. I love entertaining and baking goodies sometimes I can get carried away. I am going to have to make it simple this week as well as on Friday. So, my menu looks like this for this week.

MONDAY- layered Mexican bake, corn souffle ( this didn't get made last week)

TUESDAY- boxed Kraft mac and cheese, green beans, smoked sausage


THURSDAY- tomato soup, grilled cheese, apple sauce

FRIDAY-( our family Christmas) sloppy joes, nachos, relish tray( pickles, celery,carrots, olives) assorted candy,cookies pretzels, nuts, cheesecake

SATURDAY-crock pot chicken and stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes

SUNDAY- leftovers
