Menu Plan: First Sunday of Advent

Happy New Year! This is the week of the first Sunday of Advent in the West. It is a little Lent, though with a family full of children, we don't keep it as strictly. Our menus this week will reflect the abstinence of the season, but we also have two small feasts this week: Saint Barbara and Saint Nicholas. We will be eating some foods which are traditional for those feasts and having a little celebration as a family. Our stockings will go up on Friday night in anticipation of Saint Nicholas' arrival Saturday morning!

Thanksgiving was lovely. It was the first year since losing Rayan that I managed to make every single dish for the day - and they all even were served that same day! It was so good to have our friends over and share a good meal and gratitude. I am, in fact, sick after our excruciating Nutcracker schedule right after Thanksgiving. Dress rehearsal went from 3:30 to after 10:00 on Friday. Then the two shows that were pretty close together. So, I'm trying to get well as quickly as possible.

What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.
