Menu Plan Monday Dec 22nd

holiday

As you can see, things have been busy at Chez Harris. I always end up baking more than I mean to, and this year is no exception. I’m glad that I’ve avoided huge excess, though! This week was a Chocolate Orange Cake, rugelach (yummy but totally oozed), chocolate covered pom, chocolate covered dried fruit, chocolate covered clementines (perhaps you are detecting a pattern…) and fruit and nut bars. We ate food, too, including a Summertime Salad, and since I’m fighting a cold I think I had soup every day!

This week we’ll be traveling, and I’m glad for the opportunity to figure out what we’ll be eating so I’m not scrambling last minute. Our food of the week are cranberries, and our host is the fabulous Angela of Angela’s Kitchen.

Monday:
Roast turkey breast with roasted peppers

Tuesday:
Garlicky quinoa with broccoli

Weds:
Salmon or curry lentil soup (Amy’s) with veg TBD
Roasted cauliflower–it’s a great car food, no idea why.

Thursday:
Monday’s turkey breast which will be frozen and trucked along with us, along with celery in a chestnut sauce and hopefully cranberry relish, too.

Friday:
Avocado and Tomato and Sorrel soup (from my freezer)

Baked goods:
the DB challenge. Regretfully, it didn’t happen last week
Chocolate chestnut cake

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Sounds like you have a nice Christmas planned. Drive safely!

    Your treats look amazing! And I think you can count chocolate covered poms as a health food, right? I bet it would help with your cold… ;o)

    Merry Christmas!
