Menu Planning Monday

This week's menu is stretching right out to the first of the year, so it's a long one. Also, I have to put a disclaimer: This is a menu for the holidays. There was not alot of attempting to be healthy. We put in some of our favorite meals. Sometimes more than once. ;) Also, I didn't attempt prices this week because that would have just been sad. There was a lot of splurging, especially on the ham, but I think that one ham will last the two of us months, if I slice it up and put it in packs for sandwiches, etc, in the freezer.

B: Bagels
L: Chili
D: Grilled Cheese

B: Bacon and Eggs
L: Baked Potato Bar
D: Nachos

B: Sticky Buns
L: Ham with all the fixings.
Mashed potatoes, buttermilk biscuits, corn, green beans, stuffing, salad.
