DH and I have fallen off the wagon with regard to meal planning. I say this quite of often on my blog, not as an excuse, but to let you know that life happens to us all. Schedules get crazy, people get hungry, and nutrition falls by the wayside. We know we will be eating a rich meal on Christmas day with my parents, so we are paring back for the next several days to try to kee things in check.
- Creamy Mushroom Soup with White Beans, served with homemade Baguettes
- Vegetarian Meatloaf and Roasted Cauliflower & 16 Cloves of Garlic
- Black Bean and Tortilla Bake with sliced avocados and salsa
- Eggplant Parmesan with whole grain spaghetti and green salad
- Pumpkin Turkey Chili – recipe to follow later this week
Other Cooking / Baking:
- Honey Whole Wheat Bread
- Triple Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins
- Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (Christmas morning breakfast)
I pray you will all slow down this week and embrace the holy season. This season is not at all about a man with a beard, dancing little people, flying reindeer, or animated snowmen. It is about reverence, awe, wonder, and humility at the sacrifice made by our Lord to bridge the divide between us and Him. Quiet your heart and mid, put down your list, and soak in the great mercy offered through a humble babe born in Bethlehem.
