Welcome to the almost-Christmas edition of Menu Plan Monday! Yesterday was my Christmas piano party/recital. This is the main event I make goodies for, although I can’t say I was all that creative this year. I made peanut butter cup cookies — one of my favorites. Also Easy Christmas Candy (just 3 ingredients) — these always disappear quickly. Other than that, a couple of packages of too-cheap-to-pass-up Pillsbury dough cookies, a bowl of chips and salsa, and these cute little raspberry Santas:
I just used raspberries, Cool Whip, and a few sprinkles. The youngest daughter and her friend made them together before the recital. They’re not perfect, but they were kind of cute sitting on a holly leaf tray …
Oh, and while we’re on sweets, the middle daughter made these Marshmallow Brownies last week. Delish!
Here’s the week ahead:
Monday: BBQ Chicken Quesadillas — new recipe to me that I found on Pinterest. Looks good!
Tuesday: Lasagna, perhaps of this crockpot variety for easier prep. I have some cottage cheese (which I sub for the pricier ricotta in lasagna) that needs using.
Wednesday: General Tso’s Chicken — in cleaning out the pantry, I found a packet of this mix that probably needs to be used. It looks like chicken coated in flour, then served over rice in a sauce made from this mix.
Thursday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — this has become a family favorite.
Friday: Beef and Bean Taco Casserole — found this on a recipe card as I was sorting through my “recipe stack” this week. I don’t think I’ve tried it yet, so we’ll see …
