Menu Plan: Days Four Through Ten of Christmas

Christ is Born! Glorify Him!

We are well into the 12 days of Christmas. Our plans for Christmas were unexpectedly changed last week, and it put my meal planning off as well, so we just scrapped it and had time with our family and friends. The kids' guardians (they get our children if both Rich and I die) and godparents to about five of them, plus their son, who is our godson, and Rich's mother were able to come spend Tuesday through Saturday with us. It made it a bit more complicated and crowded, but I think was still nice. Rich had Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off from work already, so he took Saint Stephen off as well, and we had him home from Wednesday until he had to go back to work on Monday.

Our 18th anniversary is Wednesday, which is pretty exciting. We're not doing anything exciting, though. We are going to have a nice dinner with our family, then heading out to have drinks and hors-d'ouevres and to hear some live music in town, and coming home to ring in the New Year with our kids. As is our family tradition, we spread the cooking and decorating out through all the 12 days, so each day we make some fun cookie or candy or treat and the kids find a way to decorate our house. Mostly, though, we get to take some down time and they work on crafts or projects they received as gifts and read books and just have a relaxing, non-demanding time.

This week's menu has no fasting in it at all, but because of the day Epiphany falls next week, we will be back to our normal schedule.
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.
