Meal Plan for Christmas Week

by on December 23, 2011 in Meal Planning & Recipes

I haven’t ever shared any of my meal plans here before, but I thought it might be a nice to thing to do. We’re simple eaters, so I don’t usually cook anything too fancy. We are also happy eating leftovers, so I save time and money in the kitchen by cooking bigger meals less often and serving leftovers several times.

Here’s what we’re planning on this week:

(note that I haven’t planned lunches…that is usually sandwiches, soup or leftovers as well)

Saturday, Christmas Eve:

  • breakfast: eggs & toast
  • dinner: appetizer buffet – cheese/crackers, mini quiches, pizza, meatballs

Sunday, Christmas Day:

Monday, Boxing Day:

  • breakfast: breakfast casserole (eggs, sausage, cheese with crescent roll crust)
  • dinner: Christmas dinner part 2 (leftovers)


  • breakfast: leftover casserole
  • dinner: turkey leftovers (will create something, still deciding on what!)


  • breakfast: oatmeal and toast
  • dinner: roast with potatoes, carrots, onions


  • breakfast: french toast
  • dinner: leftover clean-up (we scrounge up everything to clean out the fridge for another weekend of holiday cooking!)

What are you having this week?
