Menu Plan 12/3: Cheesy Chicken Pasta, Hamburger Gravy + more!

Sunday: Youth Christmas Party.

Monday: Cheesy Chicken Pasta (basically this recipe, but with chicken), GF Cornbread Muffins, veggies.

Tuesday: Advent dinner.

Wednesday: Advent dinner/leftovers.

Thursday: Baby Shower #3 (the last one).

Friday: Carnitas (from the freezer), veggies.

Saturday: Hamburger Gravy over mashed potatoes, veggies.

For breakfast, we each grab what we want: waffles, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, cold cereal, yogurt, etc.

For lunch, I usually eat leftovers or something simple, like grilled cheese or quesadillas. My husband eats a sandwich or leftovers - he takes his lunch to work.

  1. I admire people who can plan out a menu. I can do it with ease, especially when we are going away from home any length of time. But, following it never seems to happen. I have tried, time and time again, but to no avail :( Thanks for sharing in our recipe linky! Hope you will join in over the rest of the month with any new posts that fit in. Have a great week!

    1. I don't always manage to follow it but I do my best! I've been working on this for 2+ years now, so it's definitely been formed into a habit for us. :)

  2. MPM definitely keeps me on track. I actually look forward to Mondays!
    Hamburger Gravy sounds like something my family would enjoy.
    Your menu plan looks delicious.
    Have a wonderful week!


I enjoy hearing from you! Please let me know if there's something specific you're looking for!
