Christmas Week Menu Plan

Well, we survived the first CRAZY semester of school, and we've made it to vacation. Which we all need VERY badly. Son #1 comes in on Christmas Eve, and a young lady is coming to visit him (and consequently, us) the day after Christmas. Which makes for a very interesting holiday! We're excited, and a little nervous.... and we'll see how it goes. As for what we're eating? Much of it is requested by son #1. When son #2 gets leave, I guess he will dictate the menu. :)

Sunday~ Cold and rainy weather calls for Soup and Sandwiches.
Monday~ Mom is going to a party; Dad & son #3 will fend for themselves (probably go out to eat)
Tuesday~ Hubby and I are having a date. Son #3 will have pizza with the sitter.
Wednesday~ Son #1 comes in. Beef tenderloin, mashed potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce and crescent rolls... all at his request.
Thursday~ CHRISTMAS! Roast turkey, stuffing, sweet potato casserole (with streusel topping), Swiss beans, and rolls. For dessert: pumpkin pie (ds#1's fave), pecan pie (hubby's fave), and brownies. Then we'll pass out from overeating.
Friday~ Christmas with the extended family at a local restaurant, then back to the grandparents' house for dessert and gifts.
Saturday~ not sure yet.... either something on the grill or soup. Depends on the weather and how much we've stuffed ourselves!
Be sure to celebrate the gifts in your life,
and share your menus at Laura's!

What a wonderful week, how exciting to have ds#1 home! I love sweet potato casserole, I don't make a good one but my sis-in-law's rocks. She makes it every time we go there (about once a year now), no matter what time of year it is. Talk about comfort food, no wonder it's on his perfect holiday menu!

Enjoy your vacation and Merry Christmas. I have so enjoyed getting to know you this past year.
