Menu Plan Monday - December 19

For Menu Plan Monday this week, I decided to post a picture of my favorite songbird, a cardinal. I was born and raised in Indiana. The cardinal is Indiana's state bird. This one was snapped from my Mom's window as she was lying on her bed, a few weeks before she passed on to Heaven. She loved to watch the birds as much as I do. I miss her this week more than ever. I find myself wondering what to get her for Christmas when I suddenly realize she is gone. Seeing this picture of the cardinal once again gives me comfort.

I still have to work this week so I had a bit of difficulty deciding what to make for Christmas Eve (our son and his girlfriend are coming) and for Christmas Day. Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, so we will be attending church, thus giving us less time to prepare a meal. But it can be done. Here's what I am planning:


Mini Meatloaves (done in muffin tins)
Baked Potatoes


Macaroni & Cheese
Oven Baked Chicken
Green Beans


Taco Salads
Refried Beans


Mixed Vegetables


Pizza & Pop


BBQ Meatballs
Cheeseball & Crackers
Deviled Eggs
Veggie Tray & Dip
Lentil Soup
Coconut Custard Pie
Christmas Cookies


Baked Ham
Mashed Potatoes
Smashed Squash
Home-made Bread
