One of the things I struggle with on a regular basis is trying to decide what to have for dinner. I thought it might be a good idea to keep track this year. Maybe it will give you ideas, but I sure hope it gives me ideas! And since I also want to try new recipes, I’m hoping this will help me with that as well.
I’ve just scheduled a week’s worth of posts describing our Christmas vacation. A big part of that was food (surprise!) and so I figured I’d start the week off with our dinner plan. Remember, this is a “vacation” dinner plan, but those happen occasionally, and it would have been better for us if we had done this in advance, rather than at dinner-time each day. Learn from our mistake!
Sunday – Christmas Day
(This one was planned in advance; tradition sure helps with planning!)
Standing Rib Roast
Green Peas, Salad, Rolls
Chocolate Layer Cake (from Costco)
Monday – leftovers
Tuesday – various soups and rolls (hosted by my cousin)
Wednesday – Chinese take-out
Thursday – tacos (hard and/or soft), black beans and rice, frozen corn, ice cream
Friday – ravioli (3 types), salad, garlic bread sticks and brownie sundaes (hosted by my sister-in-law)
Saturday – New Year’s Eve
Seven Layer Dip with tortilla chips and Shrimp Dip with crackers
(These are traditional “football” snacks, and I just realized they haven’t been posted on the recipe blog. We’ll have to have them again so I can take pictures!)
