Weekly Menu 12/16 - 12/20


After feeling as though I could fly right on past Thanksgiving and gear up for Christmas, now that its only a little over a week away, I'm finding myself less than prepared. I finally just two took items to the post office to be shipped...that I've had hanging around the apartment for over a month now. I've usually made quite a few dozen cookies by now and I'm no where near that. My holiday baking list resembles Santa's list of toys to deliver. I still have presents to wrap!

This is so unlike me. I'm going to blame it on the unseasonable temperatures. See, when we decorated and started getting into the Christmas spirit it was decently cold with the promise of colder weather to come. Then we got hit with a warm streak where temperatures neared the 70's for more than a few days. Granted there have been some cold days in between and I've needed to scrape the frost off my car more than once, it hasn't been consistent enough to return me to full-on Christmas. Which is probably why I've procrastinated so much. Not a good thing at all! 

Sunday - Pork Tenderloin with Gingered Cranberries, Wild Rice and Roasted Green Beans 

Monday - Shrimp Po' Boys

Tuesday - Chicken Fajitas

Wednesday - Vegetable Soup 

Thursday - Steak, Crab Cakes, Baked Potatoes and Salad 

Why so much on Thursday? Well, because its December 20th. You know, the day before the world is supposed to end according to the Mayans. Now while I really don't think we're all going to disappear or the earth is going to spontaneously combust, if there is even a 0.0000000001 chance that we're all going out on the 21st, I'm going out after eating a nice dinner. Or, I have some crab meat in the freezer that I need to use up soon. Whichever excuse you like better.
