Welcome Advent and Weekly Menu

Tomorrow marks the first day of Advent.  This is the latest that Advent can start.  We have less than 4 weeks until Christmas....where does the time go???

I put away all the Thanksgiving stuff and put out my Advent Wreath and a few winter decorations.  We will slowly start getting ready for Christmas, each day adding a little more.  The entire house will be decorated by December 15th when we celebrate Mom's birthday and Santa comes to visit all the great grandkids.

We will be using up a lot of Thanksgiving leftovers this week.

Sunday we are going to another "Toys for Tots" benefit and then Amy is having us over for dinner.  She is making Lasagna and I am bringing Tiramisu for dessert.

Monday I have a Parish Council Meeting. We are going to have Turkey Frame Soup so that we can all eat whenever we have time.

Tuesday I am going to Advent by Candlelight.  Frank and Mom will have Leftovers.

Friday we are taking John and Kirsten to Christmas Catechism and will have dinner beforehand.

 So here is the Weekly Menu:

Turkey Pot Pie

Tiramisu for dinner at  Amy and Doug's.

Turkey Frame Soup

Leftovers for Frank and Mom

Taco Casserole

Italian Sausages with Peppers and Onions
Pasta Marinara

Out with John and Kirsten before show

Remember to stop by each day for recipes and pics!!  And check out MPM for more great menus.
