Menu Plan Monday ~ Dec 15/14

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Dec 15/14

Hello!  Hope you all had a terrific weekend.  I am in the thick of watching my romantic Christmas movies and watch at least one every day.  I’m talking about the sweet Hallmark type ones that always have a happy ending.  They are so good!  I’m slightly obsessed and my PVR has so many waiting for me.  Anyone else love them as much as I do?

    Yes!! I love the Hallmark Christmas movies. I started watching them two weeks ago. Makes Christmas decorating and baking so much more fun, than watching depressing news stories.

    I love a sweet holiday movie. One of my favorite Christmas movies is “Love Actually.” It make me tear up every time, but it is such a great story.
