December Menu Plan

December 1 already?  Seriously, where has the time gone this year?  The time is FLYING by and before you know it Christmas will have come and gone.  December is typically a very busy month for us with church plays, Christmas parties, family, and more so having a menu plan is a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE help.  I actually planned out December's menu when I sat down and planned out meals for November and found it really easy.  My family is very easy to please for dinner so they are always willing to try new things especially when we are mixing in family favorites.  I should also tell you that 2 of the 4 weeks were pretty easy to plan because my son is getting braces.  So the first week (this week) he had to get some separators put in which have caused a little soreness and we have had soft foods for dinner to help with the soreness.  Next week he will actually get the braces on so we have declared it a soup week.  I figure whatever we don't finish of the soups each night can be put in the freezer for those Sunday lunch meals.  Our December menu plan is made of recipes that I want to try off of Pinterest, recipes we love off of Pinterest, and recipes that are family favorites we use time and time again (I will try and put some of those up this month).  You can find my December Menu Plan board here on Pinterest:
