Sunday Meal Plan Dec 6- 12

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


I have officially finished Christmas shopping! OK that's not quite the truth, I need to find a few more things for my SO, but other than that I am done. Now I just need to wrap what I got. It was a quiet week last week, with a pretty good storm Monday through to Wednesday. Every year I dislike snow more and more. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't constantly accompanied by ice. 

All this snow makes me want to hibernate, but I've been pushing myself to work out every day. I never thought I'd enjoy working out, but that rush you feel after a good sweaty 30 minute workout, is indescribable. It was a bit of a struggle fitting it in near the middle of the week, since I had several baking orders to work on, but I took the time to care for myself. SO important!

I will be completely honest and say that I only made 2 of the dinners I had planned last week. Wednesday to Friday were exhausting, so there was a lot of sandwiches and breakfast for dinner happening. Here is my plan for this week. Hopefully I can stick to it LOL

  • Roast Chicken Breast with mashed potatoes and spinach salad
  • Crock Pot Ham and Beans with cornbread
  • Pulled Pork with Broccoli Slaw
  • leftovers (clean out the fridge night)
  • Homemade pizza and chef salad

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

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.
