How last week’s menu went:
Well I know I didn’t totally stick to the menu last week, but ’tis the season for that, I think. I can’t even remember exactly what happened, but I know I didn’t make the chicken, and we ate frozen pizzas one night. So there ya go.
Favorite meal from last week:
Oh I think the Christmas Eve dinner was the favorite. All 5 of us enjoyed the ham, 4/5 of us liked the Potato Souffle (no parsley), and all 5 of us liked the broccoli. By the way, that potato dish is also really good with a steak dinner if you are looking for a special side dish, and it makes quite a bit. It is a big favorite and a Christmas tradition that came from my husband’s side of the family. The recipe we have calls it a souffle, but it’s really more of a casserole.
