It’s officially December and the holiday craziness has begun! I love it, though. I wouldn’t change a thing. This week’s menu is recognizable since it’s pretty much a repeat of November, but that’s the point–isn’t it? Let’s dive in to December’s Menu Plan for week one.
Ready to start meal planning, but don’t know where to start?
December Menu Plan: Week One
Tuesday (December 1): Taco Night
Taco Tuesday for the win! I plan to make my homemade guacamole-it’s so, so easy!
Wednesday (December 2): Steak and Potatoes
Steak with mustard shallot sauce, roasted potatoes (add a little lemon when you’re done and it makes them totally pop!), green beans, and salad with apples and walnuts.
Thursday (December 3): Stir Fry
I love all the veggies on top of more veggies! It’s so delicious with all the great seasonal produce we have during the summer. We usually have beef for stir fry (our local Wegman’s carries organic stir fry meat) and/or shrimp, and sometimes bacon. Because bacon.
Friday (December 4): Pizza!
It’s ‘za night at the Whalen house. We’ve been relying on a local pizza shop of late since our schedules are so packed this month, and while I don’t love spending a small fortune on pizza it’s nice to support a local small business and have a night off cooking + dishes.
Saturday (December 5):Clean out the fridge night
Once a week we eat up all our leftovers. It saves us a bundle and reduces food waste (which costs use BILLIONS each year).
Sunday (December 6): Brinner
Breakfast for dinner is always a favorite. We’ll have gluten-free pancakes, smoothies, and bacon.
