    Ok, I'm back. My DH is still looking for work, so more lean meals. I don't mind, but he's used to fancier meals...poor baby icon_rolleyes.gif
    My eldest DS is turning 21 this week! Yipes!!! I'm not old enough!!!! So he's got his all-request meal.
    And the Christmas season of parties has begun! Had one Thursday night for Bunco. Fun times! I have 2 more this coming week. I'm helping with the appetizers for the office party, but they are covering the expenses.

    So here's my menu:

    Saturday - my department party. I'm bringing the vegies. I'm thinking of one or both of Caramelized Butternut Squash and Holiday Beans With Cranberries

    Sunday - Grilled Bratwursts and Hotdogs from freezer. Whatever sides sound good.

    Monday - Charmie's Potato Cheese Soup with salad and rolls

    Tuesday - Skillet Chicken, Stuffing and Gravy using leftover gravy in freezer and stuffing I bought on sale at Thanksgiving. Served with mashed potatoes and vegies

    Wednesday - All Staff Christmas party - I'm making Green Chili Cheese Ball shaped like a snowman, Pineapple Cheese Ball shaped like a Candy Cane, and a family recipe cheese ball shaped into pinecones, Spinach Dip Pinwheels using green tortillas and stacked into a Christmas Tree.
    For dinner, Hamburger Diane with potatoes and vegies and salad

    Thursday - My DS's bday dinner! Grilled Porkchops from SeriousEats.com, mashed potatoes, corn and Honey Bun Cake

    Friday - leaving open for stretch!

    C - sorry to hear about DH, especially around the holidays. I can't believe it is already the second week of Dec. Where has time gone. I'm really trying to use what I have on hand; with 1 new dish each week. Also, trying to build up my freezer stash of meatballs, some prepared meats and chicken, etc.
    Christmas decor done, tree up, every thing mailed and cards out. Two Xmas parties, nothing too special or fancy and the dates have already changed twice icon_confused.gif Otherwise, I would love if it was a bit cooler. 80 is NOT December, very warm this year. HO HO HO. Happy shopping!
