Menu Plan Monday: Dec 27th

Is it really Monday? My days are all mixed up right now what with having Christmas on Saturday and traveling on Sunday. These things always confuse my internal calendar.

And now it's time to take inventory of my kitchen. Have you seen that place? Yikes! It's been busy in there lately and it shows.

I'm ready to have some simple, cozy meals at home this week. It's going to be a week full of packing away our Christmas things, cleaning house, getting ready to start back to school next week and preparing for next week's science fair.

So here goes...

Monday: Breakfast-for-dinner: biscuits, sausage and eggs
Tuesday: Ham and Potato Bake
Wednesday: Beef and Noodles
Thursday: Potato Soup
Friday: {New Year's Eve~I'm hoping for a date night!}
Saturday: {New Year's Day} Black-Eyed Peas, Green Salad or sauteed spinach and Cornbread

In the South Black-Eyed Peas are a must on New Year's Day along with some kind of greens. I'm curious...do you have a traditional food for New Year's Day where you're from?

I'm feeling a little run over by the holidays this year and honestly looking forward to cleaning up the house (we'll pack up Christmas next weekend) and getting back to more of a routine. We will make pinto beans and ham on New Year's Day (because I hate blackeyed peas) but there will definitely be collard greens!

Your menu looks great! We're focusing on leftover cleanup this week as I'm still dealing with Christmas turkey and ham, but at least tonight we are having stuffed shells, which is a nice break from turkey and dressing and sides for the fifth night in a row LOL!
