Week 45 Menu

Every Saturday Cate and Nate go on a date to the bagel shop…it’s so cute. Cate loves it. Yesterday they bought extras so we had them for breakfast this morning. I just wish we could have bagels for EVERY meal…it was so easy and the LAST thing I want to do right now is cook dinner (or any meal for that matter!). Less than 2 weeks until my mom is here. I CAN’T WAIT.

Here’s an attempt at a menu…I’m trying to do things that are easy and generate lots of leftovers. Last week was so awesome. Thanksgiving leftovers galore = little cooking. I wish every week was the week after Thanksgiving! Well, maybe not, but it sure was a nice week. Anyway, my menu may not be so robust, but you ARE getting two new recipes this week…Tostada Goop & Easy Crock Pot Chicken. See, I’m not ALL bad in these last weeks of being prego…

Baked French Toast (this recipe rules)

Debbie’s Easy Crock Pot Chicken

– Leftovers

– Book Club…have to figure something out for Nate & Cate

– Going to December Nights at Balboa Park, where we’ll sample all kinds of great food! If you live in San Diego and have never been to this event, GO!

– Christmas party…no cooking!

Chicken Tostadas (see recipe for Tostada Goop)

Please share your menus! Anything goes…hot dogs, shrimp scampi, WHATEVER!


  1. 1

    My week is going to be pretty easy!

    Sunday: Pork, broccoli and potato casserole (we didn’t get to have it last week so I have all the things ready! score!)

    **I’m getting excited for you Jane! Good luck!

  2. 2

    I have not thought about an actual menu in SO LONG!
    As for the bagels all the time…you could always do pizza bagels with a side salad for dinner or pizza bagels with soup. I LOVE bagels…we get them by the dozen and freeze them individually. They work great as teethers for little ones new to solids and teeth!

    Chili- if I ever get around to it!

    Probably pasta in a simple red sauce, possibly a spicy chili like red sauce.

    Not sure…we’re picking up our new car so dinner may be out or at grandma’s

    Definitely at grandma’s for dinner- decorating their Christmas tree! YAY!

    At grandma’s again…do we sense a theme??

    Simple and Easy…pizza bagels maybe?? Prepping for our party the next night!

    Christmas Party at our house
    Appetizers and more appetizers
    I’m trying out a whole new bunch of recipes. Maybe not the best idea but we’ll see! I may have some yummy ones to share!!

    Sorry it’s so sparse…Christmas is coming, so is cookie baking!!

    I have to say I love your blog filled with so many creative ideas. I found it searching the net. I’m pregnant (like you) and due Dec. 26th- my body just want to lounge around these days and my hubby and I are both in finals week so we’ll probably be scrounging around for whatever food we have around the house. And somehow… that’s ok with me. :o) Thanks for posting.
