Menu Plan Monday: December 21

For those new to the Kitchen, I link recipes that are linkable in my Monday post, but always post the recipe the day it is made and when I can, post a picture as well as my review of it in the comments. So if you are intrigued by a dinner, come on back to see what we thought!

Also, not every day is a new recipe. On days where I’m cooking something we already know and love, I try to link to the original post so that you can still try it, but I pose a Question of the Day that I would love feedback on. On days where we are doing Fend For Yourself (FFY) Buffet, I post something that I “covet” for your review and commentary.

Now that the weekly disclaimer is out, it’s week #2 of being stove-less. I have hopes that we will resolve this soon!  I’m still in microwave slash toaster oven slash electric skillet cooking.  Thank goodness I keep my freezer stocked with reheatable leftovers and overage from recipes that have made big amounts.  That’s saving us right now!

As far as the blog goes, bear with me.  The Kitchen is struggling right now with the lack of stovetop and oven, but we’ll be back soon and better than ever! In the meantime, I am keeping up with the menu planning posts!

Monday – garlic pork (a Wanchai Ferry box that I’m substituting pork in for chicken)
Tuesday – butternut squash and corn chowder (leftover frozen portion!)
Wednesday – FFY Buffet (of course, right?)
Thursday – Feast of Seven Fishes- our annual Christmas Eve tradition! We’ll be joining about 20 of our closest friends and family. I bring the Christmas Eve Haddock that I bring every year. This year I’m sending it over to my mother-in-law’s to bake.
Friday – Merry Christmas! Prime Rib and tenderloin with roasted veggies (cooked at my mother-in-law’s)
Saturday – hot dogs and baked beans (oh, how the mighty have fallen. Filet one day, hot dogs the next)
Sunday – turkey burgers

  1. My husband works in the appliance section at Kmart. He had to work on Thanksgiving and an interesting story to tell me when he got home! He said he sold 4 stoves because people discovered their stove not working that morning. They actually sold out of those electric ovens too!
    You have a delicious menu planned!
    I’m so glad that my husband isn’t working on Christmas Eve and Christmas. He really needs the days off.
    Here’s wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
