What's for Dinner: December 1 - December 7

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!


Hello, December.

On the very first day of the month, we're bracing for the first major snowstorm of the season. Our little corner of the state is expecting up to 13 inches of snow and sleet between now and Tuesday morning. Add on around one-tenth of an inch of ice on top of that and... well, good times.

Because of the weather, we got a lot done yesterday, including a bunch of errands and a trip to the grocery store. (But I didn't bother picking up bread and milk... We actually have plenty at home already.) We also headed over to our church to pick out the Rittler family Christmas tree. With any luck, we'll have some time tonight to at least put lights on it.

For now, Stephen and I are enjoying a peaceful house while the kids take their naps. I'm going to think about making another pot of coffee... or pouring a glass of wine. While I do that, go ahead and check out what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.
