This is the time of year I want to eat dessert first and I don’t crave sweets. For some reason, Christmas does all things sugarplums and sugar beautiful and delectable! I’m doing some Christmas baking this week and making thiS DARK CHOCOLATE ALMOND AND CHERRY BARK. Look for a recipe next Sunday. Now here’s what’s on the menu this week…
I love an easy dinner on a very busy day! And this one is not only easy but so so delicious! I’m making the rice up ahead (it will last for several days when refrigerated) and the rest of the recipe is a snap!
- GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED SHRIMP
- NANI’S SAUTEED RICE
- AISAN CHOPPED SALAD WITH RAMEN NOODLES AND GREEN ONIONS
Tonight is my weekly Tex-Mex fix! I’ve made these absolutely amazing fajitas for decades. Steak or chicken, they are a family favorite! And there is a secret ingredient that puts them over the culinary top! Make sure to give them a try! And I love homemade refried beans. These from A DAILY DISH OF LIFE look amazing!
WEDNESDAY- SOUP DAY
This is one super tasty dinner! I can’t wait to try both recipes! But I’m so excited to try a new-to-me food “hot water cornbread”. They look like corncakes to me, but I’m not southern so I’ll trust Stacey from Souther Bites.
I have leftover Ham from my Bible study Christmas brunch so I’ll be heating it up again and having an easy but elegant meal! Bobby is not much for leftovers. It’s a childhood trauma of having to eat the same thing days and days at a time. His mom was not the most culinary astute, but she made up for it in the fun department! So I try to make leftovers seem extra special when we do have them. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks but you can trick an old dog into eating leftovers! Ha!~
Oh, a big THANK YOU to Jaclyn at Cooking Classy for this scrumptious recipe! I’ve had this recipe before and it is one of my favorites! Good for you and easy to make!
I can’t wait to make this slow-cooker recipe from Kellie at The Suburban Soapbox! And I’ll probably make it again for New Year’s Day! Oh my we are going to love this dinner!
- SLOW COOKED PORK WITH SAURKRAUT, FENNEL, AND APPLES
- MASHED POTATOES
- GREENS, SLICED PEARS, CANDIED PECANS AND GREEN ONIONS IN A PEAR CHAMPAGNE VINAIGRETTE
TREAT OF THE WEEK
I remember my mom making this FAMOUS rum cake. In fact, she will be making it for Christmas dinner. It is boozy and filled with walnuts and other great flavors. If you have never made it, please do! Every homemaker needs to have this recipe on hand. YUM! A big THANKS to Anne from Webicurean!!!!
Okay, friends! Wishing you a happy and scrumptious week!
