December Meal Plans - Week 1

I have decided that I will continue to post meal plan options in December, too.  If only to make sure that I remember to put things out to thaw in a timely manner!   I plan to do a grocery order, sometime this month, but, probably closer to Christmas.  This week's meal plan  options are based on what I have on hand, in the fridge and freezer.

December Week 1 Meal Plan Options:

Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch:  Milk rice and seeni sambol, fruit, scrambled egg and toast, French toast, pancakes, waffles, sandwiches

Dinner:  Chicken "pie", smoked sausage stir fry, cheese burgers, leftovers.

Snacks/Desserts: Fruit, candied yam muffins, nuts  

Since I'm posting this after the week has already started, here's how it is turning out to be:


Monday (November 30)
Brunch:  Stuffing waffle
Dinner: Chicken "pot pie", made with the last of the roast chicken, gravy, cream of celery soup, vegetables, and mashed potato topping 

Chicken "Pie"

Snacks/Dessert:  Tangerine, candied yam muffins

The chicken pie makes four servings for me; unless I decide to freeze some of it, I will be having it for several meals, this week!

Tuesday (December 1)
Brunch:  Milk rice and seeni sambol, pomegranate
Dinner: Chicken pie leftovers
Snacks/Dessert - Tangerine, candied yam muffins, cashews

Wednesday
Brunch: Milk rice and seeni sambol leftovers (there's enough leftover for one more serving!)  
Dinner: Chicken pie leftovers or smoked sausage stir-fry!
Snacks/Dessert:  

Thursday

  1. We've spent the last 2 weeks eating almost everything in the freezer and now I've done a huge Pre-Christmas shop. Apart from eggs, milk and fresh veg, this should keep us going till 25th.

  3. I agree that it works well to have a plan if for no other reason to take things out of the freezer. Even if you don't use them that day, they will be ready for another time.

    1. Yes; I figured that I will be all done with my Thanksgiving leftovers by the end of the week and will probably want to eat something a little different! :D

  4. Oh my! The chicken pie looks sooo good. Mashed potato is a favourite of mine.
    We're going to be eating chili prawns with spaghetti this evening and, as I have a late finish on a Friday evening, we will be having pizza :)

    1. Thank you, Jules. I like the sound of chili prawns! And pizza is always a favorite, too, isn't it? :)

  5. I occasionally make a chicken pot pie similar to yours if I remember to cook extra veg when I do a roast dinner. I don't add celery soup though, but do saute some onion to add flavour.

    1. There was half a can of cream of celery soup leftover from the green bean casserole, so I just added that, along with the leftover gravy! It was definitely a "leftovers" type of dish! :D

  6. That sounds (and looks) like an excellent chicken pot pie! I feel inspired. DH would go nuts for one like that! We had some pork done in the crock pot today and there will be enough for another day. I might just use it for a stir fry.

    1. Thank you, Bushlady. It was a "leftovers" pie, but, it turned out quite well. I had the last of it, today. Hope you enjoy the pork stir fry. :)

  7. That's a clever way to make a chicken pie. It looks very good - I bet you enjoyed it.

    1. Thank you, Debra. I was thinking, too, that it is a good way to make a savory pie if one is not very good at making pie crusts! I did enjoy it. :)
