Menu Plan Monday - December 28, 2015

 Menu Plan Monday on Dec 28, 2015 | My week of meals and grocery list! #menuplan #groceries

Once again, I got a little bug, so I'm trying to recover from it. This meant I was lazy and didn't make dinner yesterday - we just ate Christmas leftovers. So we had last night's dinner tonight! Then I will do the grocery shopping tomorrow. I am so excited about NYE...probably my favorite eating holiday since we eat all appetizers and snacks :) I'm going to be hunting for a cupcake/cake recipe for my mom-in-law. Her birthday is on Wednesday, but she has to work, so we are celebrating on NYE again this year. We try to make sure her birthday is on the forefront because it's not very much fun to have a birthday this time of the year - a lot of people forget :(

A few of these recipes come from my Food Network magazine clippings - and won't have links to the recipes. Amazon has a great deal on them - instead of $45, you pay $15: here {affiliate link}. I'm actually cancelling my auto-renewal to renew through them each year. So much saved money!!
