Menu Plan: Christmas

It’s almost Christmas and I can’t believe it. What happened to 2011? I still haven’t planned my Christmas menu, so I’ll share it later this week.

We have several Christmas traditions when it comes to food, so our menu might look a little different this week… or not, depending on your family traditions.


Christmas Pancakes

My kids actually request this pancakes throughout the year, but I usually save them for birthdays and the week before Christmas.

Homemade Donuts

Homemade donuts are our Christmas Eve morning tradition. For years my husband would buy them, but for the last several years we’ve enjoyed homemade donuts.

Bull’s Eyes

Give this fast breakfast a fun holiday twist by using Christmas cookie cutters to cut out the hole in the bread.

Sugar Cereal

There is a story behind this, and a coupon if you want to start a similar tradition. 🙂

The Lunch List


Salmon Turnovers

We always have salmon the week before Christmas. I don’t know why, but we do.

Spaghetti Pie

I usually plan one or two really simple meals the week of Christmas so we can focus on all the baking and candy making. 🙂 Spaghetti pie is about as easy as it gets.

Grilled Venison

served with salad, vegetables, whole wheat French bread rolls

Since my husband started hunting a few years back, venison has always made it on the Christmas week menu.

Christmas Eve

Every year we have a tradition of going to church and then going out to dinner. This year we’ve been invited to a pot luck, so we might skip our tradition and go to the pot luck dinner before church.

Christmas Dinner (TBD)
