Weekly Menu 12/25/17

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is over. I hope that you had a Merry Christmas and were surrounded by people that you love. Sometimes Christmas time is hard and I really love this quote to remind us that while we might go through tough times, we also go through really amazing times as well. So if you need a little reminder- here it is along with some highlights from Christmas…

Now onto our menu!!!


Christmas leftovers- we were lucky enough to have some awesome leftovers including homemade Runzas, Lasagna, & ham (my son’s personal fav)




Chili & cinnamon rolls

The basic Chili recipe I follow is:

  • 2-3 lbs of meat this time I wanted to make extra so I used 2 lbs ground beef and 1 lb of ground pork (you can also use bison, bacon, or steak)
  • 1/2 yellow onion & clove of garlic (diced)
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 2 cans of beans (I used chili & black beans)
  • spices- a mixture of chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt & pepper.

Heat pan with olive oil & sauté diced onion and garlic

Add ground beef and pork until cooked through

Add beans, sauce, tomatoes, & spices

If you can,  put all in a crockpot and let it all cook together for several hours


Cheesy Potato soup & Hot Ham & Cheese


Philly cheesesteak with buns or rice


Mini pizza bar & Root beer floats (It’s New Year’s Eve)


What’s on your menu for the week?
