Weekly Menu 12/20 - 12/25

We have been so busy running around getting things ready for the holidays & doing last minute shopping. We ended up picking up a little something for ourselves too.
New Car!
I've never in my life owned a brand new car! We loved our old Honda Accord but this winter was really pushing us towards something a little bigger with all-wheel drive. Good timing as we are supposed to get another 8 inches of snow today!

I also had to share this from our Lego advent calendar with you...
#352 - Naked Santa
Yes, that is Santa in a thong taking a shower! Creepy, huh? Gotta wonder about those Lego designers in Denmark.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

We are doing lots of running from house to house this week for the holidays so a lot of the dinners we aren't cooking.

Beef Stew - My mom & dad are driving all day to get here in the snow so I thought a good comforting stew would be great

Olive & Cream Cheese Stuffed Burgers - A dish I never got to last week.

We'll be eating out somewhere in Duluth, I know there is a smokehouse on the list.

Dinner at my brothers

Christmas Eve at my sister's - I'm betting we'll have Swedish meatballs

Christmas at my cousins - The menu includes ham, Swedish potato sausage, beans & potato gratin

Ok, off yo get the house clean!

Great car!! I have a Jeep so that has been very helpful in the snow. When we bought it, it was our first brand new car and I have to admit it was a good decision.

Creepy Santa, especially the thong!

Merry Christmas, Kat & Matt! Congratulations on your new vehicle! Beep! Beep!

I can't wait to see the olive & cream cheese burgers. That reminds me of sandwiches I used to eat in 5th grade. They were all the rage & all of the cool kids would bring olive & cream cheese sandwiches to eat at lunch. My mom stepped up mine a few notches & added sprouts and chopped herbs.

At least Santa had the good sense to cover himself up. Congratulations on your new car, you'll put it to good use this winter!

Yay! Congrats! I've had a couple brand new cars and I have to say I absolutely love it, no matter what people say about buying used. It's that new car smell and no worries about issues. Have fun trekking around in the snow with your new one!

That Santa is hilarious! Who knew Santa wore thongs, and black no less. :)

Yay for the new car!! I refuse to drive in the winter without AWD - so I don't blame you at all!!
