‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house…everyone was trying to find easy meal ideas to get them through to Christmas. It might not rhyme, but it’s true. And the Dinner Divas have Got You with our 36th Weekly Meal Plan post!
Same as last week, we have four mains and then everyone is adding an Extra extra since one of our number is slammed with her retail business. So get ready, and as always, check the archives for goodies to round out your plan!
Okay, rather than give you the days, since you are grown and can do what you want, I’ll just share the four mains and then give you your extras at the end. Are you ready for delicious?
Weekly Meal Plan, Week 36
First up, Southwest Cheddar Chicken Spread. Sure, it’s a dip. But it’s also creamy and dreamy, and Kirsten from Comfortably Domestic says we can pair it with a salad to make it a meal. Or maybe I’ll just pair it with my favorite Christmas movie and call it a day!
These little bites are from me. Spicy Pepperoni Pinwheels! Your favorite pizza in a fun new shape–like little roses! Easy to make, and very poppable-in-your-mouthable! Ditto on that whole salad thing, but really, these (and that dip) are great for present wrapping sessions!
Skillet Chicken Parmesan from The Chef Next Door ditches the breading and frying and has your meal on the table in about 30 minutes. I call that a winner!
Cheryl from Pook’s Pantry brings some healthy with her Vegan Stuffed Hubbard Squash. A little sweet, a little savory, and a lot healthy and delicious.
Hello, extras! I love you guys! First up, Cheryl from Pook’s Pantry shows us how strong her biscotti game is with these Cranberry Pistachio Holiday Biscotti. Perfect with tea or coffee or to have as dessert for Christmas brunch. Plus they make a great gift!
I am in serious love with these Peppermint Patty Cupcakes from Comfortably Domestic! Chocolate cupcakes, peppermint cream filling, and chocolate ganache. Yeah, you’ll want these.
If you are an eggnog fan, you’ll want to give my Orange Spice Eggnog a try. Every bit as boozy as its more traditional cousin, it reads as lighter because of the sparkle of the citrus. Think of it as an adult holiday creamsicle. Enjoy!
And that’s it for this week’s weekly meal plan post! All the Divas wish you the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of Holidays. Thank you so much for spending time with us, and we’ll see you next Friday!
