Menu Plan Monday: January 2, 2012


Menu – 1/2- 1/15/12

We have eaten so much over the holidays, so it is time for a light menu.   I can’t even think of making anything too filling.   Probably a very good thing for all of us.  I can’t believe how difficult is to make a menu when you are not in the least bit interested in eating. 

Holiday food this year was very good.  The Prime Rib was a big hit with everyone.   I will have to tweak the recipe a bit next time I make it.  I am so glad that we kept up with our meal planning over the holidays, it is one less thing to try to remember.   If you want to me more organized and save money in 2012, take a stab at meal planning.   You won’t know how you ever managed without planning your meal. 


I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Year!!!!!!!!!!!   May you find much happiness and joy in 2012!
