Menu Plan: First Week of Advent

Happy New Year! Today is the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the Church year. We enter this time in joy and penitence. It is a time of waiting for the Babe, but also for His coming in glory at the end of time. We must, therefore, prepare our hearts and souls for judgment and glory. This is a penitential season, so we will be increasing our fast. It is like a little Lent. Our menus will reflect that. After all of the feasting, we are kind of looking forward to the fast, actually. If you intend to keep the fast as well, this post has some meal ideas for you.

The children's godfather ended up making us some curry coated leg of lamb, squash and rice for us for dinner, after Thanksgiving, so we shifted our meals a little. The lamb was delicious! I have frozen some of our Thanksgiving meal to bring out at other times, and in other ways.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.

I'd love the coconut shrimp recipe..:) My plan is at www.fitmomsfitkidsclub.com You can check it out there.. Not as exciting as yours.
I'm kind of winging the coconut shrimp recipe, actually. We like it when it is made with unsweetened coconut, so I'm going to use our unsweetened dried coconut either in a batter or as a coating over dredged shrimp and pan fry them.
Also, I just realized I hadn't posted the meal for tomorrow's dinner, so that is up now, too.
Hey! Thanks for stopping by today and checking out the menu board. You weren't the first to ask about Idaho Tacos... I wrote a post on it. Here's the link:


I highly recommend trying them at least once. Let me know what you think!
