Week 344 Menu: Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone!  Wowzer, can you believe Christmas Eve is tomorrow?  Exciting and so much to do!  These last three days with the kiddos home have been fun and busy, busy.  Actually the last few weeks have been fun and busy.  

I spent a little while today making gifts for neighbors and friends.  I wanted to make something sweet, so I made this Peanut Butter bark (found on Two Peas and Their Pod).  

But I also wanted to give something non-sugary and gluten-free, so I mixed up a whole bunch of my taco seasoning and made little packages for them.  I used gift bags that I cut in half and sealed the tops and bottoms with my FoodSaver.  It was pretty fun!  I wanted to share my love for Mexican food (and a nod to the New Mexican in us)

My little guy turned three this weekend and we made a train cake for it.  I frosted it and the kids (mostly the birthday boy) went to town decorating it.  Pretty fun for a three year old!

All righty...I've got some more shopping to do and presents to wrap and maybe I should get ready for the day, since it's 5:15 pm.  Or not!  On to our menu for the week:

Monday:  we went to a Christmas party and I made powdered sugar Greek cookies for a cookie exchange

Tuesday:  we fed the missionaries lasagna, macaroni grill rosemary bread, green salad, broccoli

Wednesday:  Swedish meatballs, IKEA gravy, boiled red potatoes, veggies, one hour rolls

Thursday:  my kids request for Christmas Eve...orange chicken (their favorite!)

Friday:  ham, funeral potatoes, rolls, etc.

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  family's choice

What are YOU making this week?

Do you have a favorite Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas dinner?  If I don't get back on the computer before Christmas, then I'll wish you a Merry Christmas now!  Thanks for visiting my blog!  I love blogging and the people who visit me here!

I'm thankful for this Christmas time so I can remember the things that are important:  family, friends, kindness, service, and the love of my Savior.  Merry Christmas!
