Weekly Menu 12/5 - 12/23


I've been a crappy blogger for the past week. I made the Crock Pot Potato Soup but since we weren't big fans of it, I decided not to blog about it. Then I made Emeril's Sloppy Joe's and completely forgot to blog about them too. Since there are still some leftovers in the fridge, I might heat up a sandwich just to take a picture and blog it.

But it seems if I am ever a crappy blogger, I go overboard trying to make up for it. Which is probably why I decided at 10 PM at night to plan out dinners from now until Christmas. Why? I have no idea. We're not so busy that I won't have time to do it on my usual night. I'm mostly doing it because I feel like if I plan out the next 2.5 weeks of meals, there's a better likelihood that I'll actually make them.

Sunday 12/5 - Pork tenderloin with cranberry sauce, roasted red potatoes and green beans (I didn't get a chance to make it this past week)

Monday 12/6 - Chicken noodle soup

Tuesday 12/7 - leftovers (Tom won't be home until late, C will be out of state, and I'll be working until close to 10 PM)

Wednesday 12/8 - Spicy shrimp pasta (Yeah, also something I was supposed to make this week)

Thursday 12/9 - Emeril's mushroom smothered steaks and risotto

Friday 12/10 - Mushroom, broccoli and red pepper melts

Sunday 12/12 - Mac and Cheese (a new recipe I want to try)

Monday 12/13 - leftovers (its the last night of my class)

Tuesday  12/14 - Pork chops with mushroom potato gratin

Wednesday 12/15 - French onion soup

Thursday 12/16 - Spaghetti and garlic bread

Friday 12/17 - Jerk chicken with mango salsa

Sunday 12/19 - Maple and brown sugar pork tenderloin (sides to be determined)

Monday 12/20 - Emeril's pan roasted chicken and oven crispy fries

Tuesday 12/21 - Shrimp bisque with bread

Wednesday 12/22 - Lasagna

Thursday 12/23 - Grilled cheese and tomato soup

It is possible with the amount of bread I plan on having with the meals above that I'll just make some of my own. And now, since December is really the month where everyone goes absolutely crazy baking, I decided to include the desserts I plan to make this month.

Dec 4th/5th - Cleta Bailey's Toffee Squares (Pioneer Woman) and Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies (Pennies on a Platter)

Dec 11th/12th - Snickerdoodle and Chocolate Chip cookies

Dec 18th - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Dec 19th - 24th - chocolate covered pretzels, caramel corn, more cookies, and possibly more sugar coated pecans.
