It's Monday and I've been away from the computer for well over a week.  With the Christmas and New Year holidays I have been functioning on "vacation time" which means blogging is the farthest thing from my mind.  Instead family, friends, advent, gifts, eating, baking, sleeping, playing, traveling and now unpacking have consumed my thoughts.  (Though I did sneak in some time in the car last night to put down a few thousand words of a book idea that has been swimming around in my brain for quite some time!)
So when I came home to a mostly empty refrigerator, I knew I would not only need to meal plan, but also get some of those ideas down on paper for you to see as well!
While spending time with family, my sister in love mentioned when food is placed on the table "family style" her daughter calls it "Feasting"!  I think it's adorable as well as the truth of our society.  Daily we feast at these tables of ours and I'm grateful for her sweet realization of our blessings!

This weeks feasts include:
Monday: Chevy's Happy Hour Appetizers (we feed our family of five for $20!)
Tuesday: Fish Tacos with Cilantro Rice; This rice is one of our family favorites, and I was shocked to see that I had not shared the recipe with you previously.
Wednesday:Stuffed Mushrooms (I've never made these before, but they look AMAZING!!! I plan on using larger mushrooms to make it a main dish instead of an appetizer.)
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie
Friday: Family Pizza Night (mmm, I want to make this one for the Man and myself!)

Pizza night and chicken pot pie. Those are two regulars on my meal plans as well. Yum!

Your menu looks delish and I love your header.

I am currently sharing meal planning tips and simple dinner ideas on my site. I would love for you to swing by and linkup any posts you might have that other moms looking for meal planning resources may find helpful.
