Menus on Mondays: Holiday Week Edition Menu Plan

This Menus on Mondays Menu Plan will naturally be a little bit different.  With Christmas Eve and Christmas thrown in, plus leftovers and massive amounts of family time, this week of menus is all about comfort, tradition, and lazing around the house with those you love.

It’ll be a quite week on Mom Favorites.  I’ll be doing what you’ll be doing: spending time with my family, playing with my boys, and cooking, eating, and drinking lots of wine.

Here’s a peek of what I’ll be making this week.  Borrow a recipe or ten.  They’re all good.  I hope you have a delightful week of friends and family and everything MERRY!
