Weekly Meal Planning

This week I was tempted to just list some kind of delicious baked good for dinner every night, because all I want to do now that Christmas is inching ever closer is bake, bake, bake. I have a list of a dozen or so treats I want to make this year and I'm hoping to get my Christmas cookie packages distributed next week, so I'm going to be a very busy girl over the next week or so. I can't wait to share all of the recipes with you!

Anyway, on to the meal plan, because I may be 8 months pregnant, but I still just can't justifiy having sweets for dinner every night.

Maple-pecan chicken, roasted potatoes, mixed greens and pear salad

Chicken broccoli bake

Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner -- fried egg and cheese sandwiches, hashbrowns, fresh fruit (probably pears, because I love them)

Pork tenderloin with pomegranate cranberry sauce, rice pilaf, salad

Friday: The triumphant return of
Burgers and Fries Friday! I've been wanting to make Rachael Ray's winter white burger ever since I saw it in her magazine a year ago, and the time has finally come.

Vegetable lasagna, breadsticks. This was on the menu a couple of weeks ago but I didn't get to make it, and I want to freeze half for when the baby comes.

Chicken-fried steak, mashed potatoes, buttered corn

Weekend Breakfast:
Eggnog pancakes with cranberry syrup. I can't wait for this breakfast!

Baking: Too many goodies to name, but here's a teaser:
pistachio chocolate chip muffins with strawberry filling. If the thought of those doesn't make your mouth water, nothing will! I can't wait to taste them.

Sounds like a delicious week! My husband had seen a recipe for eggnog french toast...reminded me of eggnog pancakes...I'll have to see what you think of them. They sound good!
