Hi friends, it’s finally here. The week of Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful week with your loved ones and of course lots of delicious food. This week’s menu plan took me quite awhile to put together and as a result I have many links to share with you. Maybe it will help some of you still looking for a few recipes to round out your meals. Enjoy!!
Oh my, last week was a delicious one. I fell in love with this recipe for Crispy Pan Roasted Chicken Thighs. So so good!! Like really really good!! And easy too. I originally bought my cast iron pan to make these Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookies and now I love it so much I use it all the time including for this recipe. You’ve got to try it!
Also be sure to check out Melanie’s latest post here where she shared an easy holiday appetizer recipe for Mini Cheese and Onion Pastries.

Looking for a new breakfast recipe for Christmas morning? Here are a few options for you:
I did a fun hot cocoa bar this past weekend and it turned out great with so many different combinations of fixings to add. Something for everyone!
So I found this great round-up online of 25 Hot Cocoa Recipes that I thought might inspire some of you to do the same.
Enjoy all the deliciousness :) Merry Christmas everyone!!
