Last Menu Plan for 2012!

Well, technically only the final day of 2012 is covered in this menu plan, but it still counts. Today the Princess told me she was going to miss 2012. When I asked why, she said it was a good year for her. Funny girl!

I questioned her further about what made it a good year, and she gave me a list of things - our Disney trip, time spent during the summer with Grandma and Papaw, her birthday tea party, watching the Olympics together. One thing stood out to me - time spent with family was high on her list of what was good about 2012. It just re-emphasized to me the importance of spending time with our children. That's what means the most to them and is what they'll remember.

Now, on to this week's menu.

Beef bourguignon (slow cooker version), noodles

New Year's Day spent with friends - lots of snacks and probably some ham

Baked ravioli, garlic bread

Chicken pot pie, green beans

Steak, twice baked potatoes

Deep dish skillet pizza

Chicken and corn chowder

  4. MPM definitely keeps me on track. I actually look forward to Mondays!
    This New Year's Eve, I'm staying home, cleaning our house and doing some blog visiting. Hubby had to work so it will be quiet.
    Your menu plan looks delicious.
    Have a wonderful week and a Happy New Year!
