Menu Plan Monday - recipe ideas and menu planning inspiration for the week of Dec 28/15

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends!ย  I enjoyed my time off so much just relaxing and making memories. My girl leaves today to go back to school, I simply can’t believe how fast a week goes ๐Ÿ™

Recipe Highlight:

One of my favorite recipes this past week were the delicious Paleo Almond Donuts I made for myself. I had purchased a donut pan awhile ago and was waiting for the perfect recipe to try it out with.ย  What a treat!

Also I had a chance to update the Pepper Swiss Cheese Ball recipe photo.ย  What do you think?ย  My daughter was a very happy girl, it’s her favorite!!

    I love my donut pan! Even though I’ve only used it a handful of times over the 2 years I’ve had it, each time it’s resulted in a delicious treat that feels much healthier than buying donuts somewhere.

      My next goal is to try and find a recipe to make some donuts for my dairy, egg and gluten free son!!

    Bless your heart…you have to eat scrambled eggs while everyone else eats BLT’s. I’m not sure I could be in the same room while I ate my eggs. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess it’s worth it to be healthy!

      Haha, tell me about it! I can have a little bacon now and then though so I’m not totally deprived ๐Ÿ™‚

    We are away visiting family this week, so I’m not menu planning. I hope to get back in the swing of things with next week’s plan. I love that you are doing a fondue party for New Year’s Eve! Maybe I can convince our family to do the same … or at least the chocolate fondue part because who doesn’t love chocolate!

      It’s a tradition for us, I love that it takes awhile and we always get some great conversation going with the kids!
