Planning Parties and the Weekly Menu

Today will be spent preparing for our Parish Council party that we are hosting on Monday evening. We are also printing out the flyers for the Choir Christmas party so that we can distribute them when we sing tomorrow.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day with Mass in the morning followed by our scuba shop, Anchor Bay Scuba's, Christmas party pot luck.  I am bringing Crab Dip and Crackers. Then we will shoot down and get Frank's Mom so we can take her and Mom to our local theatre, The Snug.  We will be seeing the musical "She Loves Me" which is the story on which movie "You've Got Mail" was based.  Afterwards we are going to the Benda's for dinner.  I am bringing a Black Forest Trifle for dessert.

Monday night we will be supplying a baked ham and beverages and everyone else will bring a dish to pass.

Friday night we will start putting up the Christmas tree in preparation for the following week when we have 3 parties scheduled.

So here is what our Weekly Menu will be:

Beef and Noodles

Crab Dip (ABS pot luck)
Black Forest Trifle (Benda's for Dinner)

Baked Ham (Hosting Parish Council Party)

Try it Tuesday
Ham and Noodle Casserole
(This was a try it Tuesday meal that got set aside a couple of weeks ago)

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Chicken Piccata
Mashed Potatoes
Glazed Carrots

Order in Pizza while we work on tree

Please stop by each day for photos, recipes and tutorials.

    1. Before we had Mom, Frank and I would entertain almost every day from Thanksgiving until Christmas and then between Christmas and New Year he and I would take off for a few days and just rest and relax. I miss those get aways with him after Christmas. This might just turn into a post one day LOL>
