We have a short menu week because we will be going to Spokane on Tuesday night after Tim gets off work so that we won't have to wake up in the middle of the night and drive up there in order to make our early morning flight. We will be staying with Tim's aunt and uncle. We are planning on having our own Christmas dinner this weekend when we will open our presents to one another and celebrate before we go home to Georgia. I can't wait!
Thursday: This week our meals were pushed back a day again because we went to Spokane last Friday for the day and had dinner with Tim's aunt and uncle that night instead. So tonight we will be having chicken fajitas.
Friday: We will be having our own Christmas dinner on Friday night after spending the day opening presents and playing with Owen's new toys. I will be making Creole Butter Roasted Capon with Pecan Green Beans and Cajun Tater Puppies. I found these recipes in the latest issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine.
And for dessert on our special Christmas day? Eggnog cupcakes! Eggnog is a very polarizing drink and luckily for me, Tim and I are both firmly in the pro-eggnog camp. The recipe is from Annie's Eats.
Saturday: Leftover chicken with be used in Skinny Taste's chicken pot pie soup.Sunday: Order pizza. We will be having to take our tree down, pack for our trip, clean up the house, etc. etc. etc. so I am going to order pizza to take one thing off our to-do list for the day.
Monday: Skinny Taste Crock Pot Turkey Meatballs. These are super easy and something that I can throw in the slow cooker and then not worry about for the rest of the day. And the sauce is beyond yummy. Plus I have enough half-used boxes of pasta in my cabinet to feed a small Italian village.
