December Menu

Oh, where has the time gone? First it was oh, it's the end of the summer, now it's oh, it's the end of the year. End of the year! Holy cow, how did that happen? This month is a little crazy for me because not only am I trying to get ready for Christmas and actually enjoy the holiday season with my family but I'm also trying to get 2 birthday parties ready for my girls. My baby is turning 2 next week and my oldest is turning 4 the beginning of January.

I'm not really going to worry too much about a menu this month because I know I have stuff in my freezer and pantry that I can use and it's about time to clean those out anyway. Other things that I've thought about making will be easy meals (lots of beans) so I don't stress out too much and make myself more crazy than I already am!

I'm a freak about pancakes and still have a few more up my sleeve for this month. I also love holiday treats so I'm sure I'll be making plenty of those (as husband sighs and rolls his eyes) as well. I'm sure I'll need a work out plan after this month is over, so it's a good thing I have a half marathon looming over my head for June to get ready for.

If you have any must-have holiday food/treats, feel free to share the link in the comments. Happy holidays and good eats!
