Menu Plan Monday – December 29, 2008

Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, M-Elle of Cooking and Uncooking is hosting this week.  The theme she has chosen is “leftovers.”  Great for us!  The kids are home this week and for lunches we will be finishing the cranberry relish and other leftovers and having “planned leftovers” to make the cooking at a minimum so that I can enjoy my family time more.  Today will see me planning out the rest of our week and seeing when we can sled with friends, what treats  to bring for the New Year’s Party, grocery shopping, etc.  


I have taken a couple of weeks off from Slow Cooking Thursday and Gluten Free-zer Friday, but will be back with them this week, so see you then…
