Menu Dec. 15th to Dec. 31st

,I am going to start to post my menu on here every 2 weeks. I got the idea to do a menu from my friend Jeannie from Blessed to be home. Jeannie does her menu every week. I started to  try this for the week, but I like to make my menu for 2 weeks starting on our pay days that way I can do my grocery shopping for the whole time and not run back to the store. I love to have a menu it takes away the what to make for dinner dilemma for me. I don't always stick to it day by day I do change the days around. If something sounds better then I make it instead of waiting for the day I have it scheduled for.
I am a little late posting this one today, I had a very busy day going Christmas shopping! I am still not done but plan to finish on the weekend.
