Menu Plan Monday ~ December 12/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Dec 12/16 - recipe links and menu plan inspiration at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Hi friends! I know everyone is busy but please don’t neglect to do a menu plan in the all the Christmas craziness. It will make a huge difference in your stress level I promise!

Hot Chocolate Bar:

Last week Yuni posted here about the hot chocolate bar she created for her home. It’s so pretty.

I was so inspired by her post, I immediately had to create one for my own home. Using stuff I had around the house, this is what I came up with. So fun!

The free printable I used for the sign can be found right HERE.

Recipe Highlight:

Yesterday for an afternoon snack I made some Paleo Banana Bread. It was delicious and totally hit the spot. It’s a great snack without any refined sugar that still feels like a little treat. Give it a try :)


Also if you missed my giveaway last week be sure to go over and check it out and enter. It’s a basket of organizing cheer! I’ve even included a super cute apron to help motivate you in the kitchen :) More details right HERE.

Hope your week is not a chaotic one. Don’t forget to take some time to enjoy the little things :)

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.

    Thank you so much for hosting! I love the Cocoa Bar idea! I need to try it! Though I worry that my kids would be drinking it all day!
