Meal Plan Sunday- Dec 27- Jan 2

Meal Planning is a great way to save time and money every week!  

Merry Christmas!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Though it was very different this year we had a lovely time. We had my SO's mom and nana over for dinner on Christmas Eve and stuffed ourselves silly with a seafood and pasta feast. The evening was spent talking, laughing and watching It's a Wonderful Life.

Then Christmas day, we went to my SO's mom's house to celebrate with his sister, her partner and nana. We ate way too much with a delicious brunch consisting of lemon cranberry scones (made by me), a charcuterie board (made by me), waffles, hash-browns, and Christmas pancakes. Oh and you can't forget the mimosas!! Dinner was a team effort and I brought homemade rolls, homemade cranberry sauce, pie (cherry and pecan) and an assortment of Christmas cookies I had been making all month. We also had turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes, rutabaga and corn. Again we stuffed ourselves silly and had such a wonderful day playing cards, talking and laughing. Though it wasn't our HUGE family Christmas, we still had a wonderful day.

This week is a relaxing week. We went into lock down here on Boxing Day and my SO is off until Jan 4th. My birthday, which is on the 29th, will be spent watching movies with my SO and the kids. It's a perfect day in my opinion. Here is my menu plan for the week

  • Leftovers- mashed potatoes, rutabaga, corn, crab legs, salmon
  • Stuffed Shells with Caesar salad and garlic bread
  • Take out Chinese food for my birthday
  • Moose meatballs in gravy with mashed potatoes, and broccoli with cheese sauce
  • Leftovers- Clean out the Fridge night!
  • Turkey dinner with all the fixings (we didn't have leftovers from Christmas, so we will be cooking up a small turkey for New Years day)

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
