Week 655 Weekly Menu

Happy Holidays! We are celebrating Christmas this week and I’m getting ready to cook a few of our traditional recipes. Can’t wait to see all your meal plans for the week, too!

Week 655 Weekly Dinner Menu: Monday - Homemade Pizza; Tuesday - Christmas Eve Traditional Chinese Takeout; Wednesday - Swedish Meatballs; Thursday and Friday - Leftovers; Saturday - Eat out; Sunday - Grill night with salad

Homemade Honey Goat Cheese Pizza

– Chinese Food Takeout (Maynard Family Christmas Eve Tradition)

Swedish Meatballs with boiled red potatoes and lingonberry jam (Wallin Family Christmas Eve Tradition, but on Christmas Day!): I will be using GF panko bread crumbs for a small batch for myself…last year I used GF breadcrumbs and the meatballs were definitely not as good as the original made with real bread crumbs, so I’m going to try a different brand for this year’s GF batch. Hoping they will be better than last year, crossing fingers!
– Swedish Cardamom Bread (both in bun form and braided loaves…I’m also going to try to create a Gluten Free version of the buns, wish me luck!)

– Leftovers

– Leftovers

– Eat out night

– Grill night with salad

Please share your food plans for the week in the comments below! Can’t wait to see what everyone’s different holiday traditions are!

    Happy holidays! Now that you’ve mentioned meatballs, I can’t stop thinking about them. Hahaha. I’m sure I’ll probably make them soon. We travel to visit family for the holidays, so I luckily don’t have to plan too much this week!
    Monday: chicken and broccoli
    Tuesday: our family tradition of cheese, summer sausage, and crackers on a blanket in front of the fireplace. We are adding in hummus and carrots this year too.
    Wednesday-Thursday: traveling
    Friday: we will be driving home so we will probably eat out.
    Saturday and Sunday: this may be meatball day! And probably pizza.
