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

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
