Menu Plan Monday - New Years Edition

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. While I am sad that Christmas Day has already came and gone, I am also grateful for the rest that this next week will bring. After a three day Christmas celebration, on top of three days of preparation for the big event I am absolutely, positively beyond exhausted.

One of the new items that I made this year was Taste of Home's Santa Bread. This was super easy to make, and was a huge hit. I just had to share a picture of it:

I used my recipe for Sweet Dinner Rolls for the bread dough. However my bread was really thick, I think that I let it rise too much, which made it extremely hard to get the inside of the bread done without burning the crust of the bread. My bread was still pretty doughy inside.

While we do have plans to stay home for the most part this week there is a chance we might be going out of town mid-week, nothing like a spontaneous road trip. So this week's menu is definetly subject to change.

Monday - Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Tuesday - Homemade Pizza using homemade pizza crusts and my homeamade pizza sauce

Wednesday - Pork Ole (adjusted to feed six instead of two)

Thursday (New Years Eve) - White Chicken Chili

Friday (New Years Day) - Corned Beef and Cabbage

Saturday - University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky basketball game! Go Cards!
Homemade Chicken Wings using sauces bought at Buffalo Wild Wings, Cheesy Hot Potatoes

Sunday - Eat out after Church, leftovers for supper
