Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!
Hi friends! Ready or not Christmas is almost here. This week is by far the most important week to have a menu plan. Do your future self a favor by writing down some simple meals for this week so you have one less thing to think about.
I’m going to share my Christmas menu plan with you this week as I will not be posting next week. So there will be no Menu Plan Monday on Dec 24th but we will resume Dec 31st. I’ve got my middle son coming home from school this week but unfortunately my daughter couldn’t make it until Dec 26th as she is flying in from Korea. Even though she won’t be here on Christmas day, I’m just so thankful I still get to see her 🙂
So two things I want to share with you this week. First is my annual Merry Christmas Basket of Fun Giveaway. If you missed that giveaway, it’s not too late to enter. You can find it right HERE. Look at all these awesome gifts included.
Big Batch Holiday Party Punch:
A reader reminded me of this Big Batch Holiday Party Punch recipe I posted way back in 2012. I haven’t had a chance to make it yet this year. If you’ve got one of these big drink dispensers I worked out all the complicated math for you to fill it up with this delicious recipe. Enjoy!
I hope you all have a terrific Christmas. Here’s what we’ll be eating this week and of course our Christmas menu.
