menu plan monday ~ november 29, 2010

This is a very busy week for us. Next Sunday is our annual Christmas Open House. We expect 180-200 guests, and, of course, I want everything to be perfect! :-} With apologies to my husband who has taken the week off to help…but he knows how I am, don’t you, Honey?

We started decorating the addition counter last night and it is a work in progress. Didn’t get back to it today, but plan to finish it tomorrow.

We decided to add some beads to the window over the counter and I really like the way they turned out. Easy to do with Command hooks.

This picture doesn’t do justice to DD’s Japanese themed tree. It turned out so well!

Genny decorated the mailbox, which has been her special project for several years now. This year, she added lights to it and it turned out great!

Buttercup takes all the commotion in stride.

Needless to say, the menu this week has to be very easy to put together.

Homemade Sauce
Garlic Bread

Hearty Ham Casserole

Chicken in the Crock Pot

Spicy Shredded Pork
Homemade Buns

Cheeseburger Soup

Casey’s Pizza

Ham / Turkey Deli Sandwiches
And then, after a very quick lunch and some very last minute details, Party time!

You’ll find more menu and recipe ideas at Menu Plan Monday.
