Meal Plan Monday #203

Thanksgiving is over. We had a great, but very short, visit with Darren's family in California. Darren used the StoryCorps app and interviewed his grandparents. We learned a lot. It was really special. I hope you had a wonderful time with your family.

Now that we're back, it's Christmas party season... in fact, I have two this week. It's CRAZY! Both of the ones this week are pot luck, so I'll be making some things.

Sunday:  Chipotle Lime Salmon with Rice and Salad

Monday:  Roasted Vegetables with Salad

Tuesday:  Ham Steak and Baked Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday:  Tutorial Night Takeout!

Thursday:  Mississippi Pot Roast with Potato Casserole (Christmas Pot Luck #1 - Loaded Potato Casserole)

Friday:  Christmas Pot Luck #2 - Spinach & Artichoke Dip and Brownies with Cheesecake Swirls
