Menu Plan: December 8 - December 14

Our weekly Menu Plan for December 8 - December 14, 2013.

Miniature Christmas Tree Centerpiece | Taste As You Go
Miniature Christmas Tree Centerpiece

Although we Stephen cut down our Christmas tree last weekend and I've been slowly decorating our house over the course of the past week, it didn't feel like we were approaching the peak holiday season until now. We attended our first holiday party at our friends' house in Philadelphia last night, and I'm off to a holiday luncheon with some of my sorority sisters in about 30 minutes.

I almost didn't have this week's Menu Plan ready to share with you today, but I haphazardly put something together this morning, and I think I'm pretty satisfied with our dinner schedule. I may not follow it exactly, but at least I have something in place, right?

Without further ado...

Menu Plan: December 8 - December 14, 2013

Sunday: Dinner "on the road"

Stephen and I are attending our niece's school concert this evening, which means we'll be headed out the door not too long after I get home from my luncheon. Obviously, this means I'm not cooking tonight, so we're just going to grab something while we're out.

Monday: Dinner out with Friends

Another out for us! Fabulous friends of ours are preparing for an out-of-state move, so we're getting together for one more dinner before they leave. It'll be a bittersweet occasion for sure, as Stephen and I are excited for their new adventures but sad that they'll be moving so far away.

Tuesday: Creamy Parmesan Pasta with Peas and Bacon

Yes, this was on last week's Menu Plan. Since I never got around to making it (we opted for leftovers that night), I'm going to try to make it this week. I have all the ingredients, after all.

Wednesday: Stephen's Choice

Thursday: Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe over Creamy Polenta

Friday: Pizza with Spinach and Ricotta

Saturday: Roasted Mushroom Risotto

Another dish on last week's Menu Plan that got bumped. This will make a cozy weekend meal, and I'm already looking forward to it!

What's on your Menu Plan for this week?
