Weekly Menu 12/11-12/16


The menu for this week is a short one because Tom and I are spending Tuesday and Wednesday at the corporate office in New Jersey. We're going up for the planning and budgeting meetings we have every year. I found out they're doing a Christmas dinner for us at a hibachi place so that should be interesting.

How are your Christmas plans going? Have you bought and decorated your tree? Are you still shopping? Do you have cookies in the oven while you're reading this? It's later than usual for me, but we finally have all of the decorations up and the shopping is complete. I still have a few more presents that I'm waiting to arrive in the mail, but I'm 99% done. Oh, speaking of cookies...

Back in the summer I had intended to do a a play off ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas and have almost the whole month of December dedicated to as many different baked goodies as I could create, but the timing just didn't work out. I hope to do it for next year. But, I did manage to bake just enough goodies that the next two weeks will be dedicated solely to sweets. As a sugar-lover, I'm excited!
Have I ever mentioned Tom and I are OBSESSED with The Grinch?
Sunday - Crock Pot Asian Pork with Mushrooms 

Monday - Shrimp Scampi (I didn't make it last week)

Wednesday - French Onion Soup 

Thursday - Beef Au Jus Sandwiches

Friday - to be determined 

Tom and I won't get home from New Jersey until late Wednesday night. Since I knew I wouldn't have enough time to plan out a full meal, I made the French onion soup this morning and it's currently hanging out in the fridge. The day after a trip to New Jersey is almost as exhausting as the time spent up there. I know it's only two working days I'll miss from the office, but I know a ton of work will be waiting for me. So to make my life easier, on Thursday, I'm using the remaining French onion soup as the au jus for the sandwiches.

Friday's meal all depends on how I feel. Tom is supposed to cook on Friday's but he's gotten out of it for quite a few weeks now. Either he'll make something or we'll do something simple like a homemade pizza since we haven't had it in a while.
