Monthly Menu Planner - December


My final meal plan for 2015!  As we prepare to enjoy the holidays I want to make sure we have plenty of healthy meals to combat some of the unhealthier choices we'll be tempted with.

This is what we have planned for our meals next month:

Peanut Noodles, Garden Salad
Chicken & Black Bean Burritos, Lettuce & Tomatoes
Cheese Omelets, Toast & Jam, Orange Slices
Sausage Calzone, Caesar Salad
Savory Pot Roast, Brown Gravy, Potatoes & Carrots
Tuna Casserole, Buttered Peas
Breakfast Burritos, Fresh Fruit
Chicken Ranch Pizza, Caesar Salad
Beef Barley Soup, Biscuits, Tossed Green Salad
Sweet & Sour Pork, Steamed Rice, Garden Salad
Steak Fajitas, Salsa, Sour Cream
Egg Scramble, English Muffins, Fruit Salad
Pork Fried Rice, Stir Fried Veggies
Chicken Noodle Soup, French Bread, Garden Salad
Ground Beef & Mushroom Gravy, Steamed Rice, Green Beans
Gingerbread Pancakes, Bacon, Orange Wedges
Thai Coconut Curry Soup
Pasta Bolognese, Spinach Salad
Three Cheese Quesadillas, Lettuce & Tomatoes, Salsa, Sour Cream
Mini Vegetable Quiche, Toast, Fresh Fruit

I incorporated a lot of use of leftovers again this time.  Not only will this help us make sure to minimize food waste but it will also mean I will have fewer meals to cook and extra time to focus in other areas.

This is our traditional Christmas Eve menu:

Clam Chowder
Garlic Cheddar Biscuits
Garden Salad
Christmas Cookies

This is our Christmas menu:

Grilled Rib Eye Steaks w/ Au Jus
Yorkshire Pudding
Baked Potatoes w/ Sour Cream & Chives
Caesar Salad
Olives
Cranberry Apple Crisp w/ French Vanilla Ice Cream

Are you a crazy meal planner like me?  What wonderful things do you have planned to eat?
