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

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.
