Menu Plan–Dec. 14

We’ve reached the end of the semester – the end of half of my 5th year as a college professor.  Simply amazing and humbling to me.  I give my finals at the end of the week, so that means I have some time earlier in the week to get my classes ready for the spring term.  I am thankful for that time, because we all know once we leave for Christmas very little work gets done!

Here’s our menu:

Sunday
Breakfast Quesadillas
Chicken Noodle Soup
To do: Make caramels, make baked oatmeal

Monday
Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal
Penne with Broccoli and Sausage
To do: Thaw sausage

Tuesday
Leftover Baked Oatmeal
Cheesy Green Beans & Rice
To do: Thaw meat for soup, dice veggies for soup

Wednesday

Crockpot Busy Day Soup, Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls
To do: Thaw chicken

Thursday – Finals
Granola with Cherries

To do: Thaw beef, slice peppers

Friday – Commencement

Thanksgiving Week: Desserts

Nothing tops off a meal like dessert; and they make a delicious late day afternoon snack too. 

My favorite is Sweet Potato Pie with Gingersnap Crust

Coming in at a close second is Apple Pie with No-Fail Crust

If you are in the mood for cheesecake, I recommend this Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Or, this Caramel Apple Cheesecake.  Delicious! 

For bars, try these Carrot Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Or, mini Apple Pockets.  These are a hit with kids and adults alike. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For cookies, we love these Sweet Potato Gingersnaps!
