THM Menu for December 11-17, 2017

Here we are half way through December already. Whew!  Seems like time is just flying by.  Still plugging away on the THM plan. How are you all doing this week?  Any new recipes you've tried and loved?  Did you make up your menu plan yet?  If so please share. I love browsing other menus for ideas.

Breakfast:
Mufflets - THM S THM Cookbook p.237
Creamy Grains with Mango THM E - THM Cookbook p.252
Breakfast Cookies - THM S - EKK p.102
Chocolate Nut Granola - THM E - THM Cookbook p.255

Lunch:
Trim Mac Salad - THM S - THM Cookbook p. 181
Sweet Potato and Carrot Chili - THM E - rinse meat and watch oil amounts
Mexican Cottage Cheese Salad - FP p.302 THM#1, I put this over spinach
Smoked Sausage Salad THM S THT p.203

Supper: 
Blackened Chicken with Mango - THM E - THM Cookbook p.66
Taste of Home Casserole - THM S - THT p.144
Chicken Enchilada Spaghetti Squash - THM S - THT p. 132
Meatballs - THM S - THT p.129

So far picking 3-4 different recipes a week is fairly accurate with what I make/use each week. It is less work and effort on my part if I make extra for leftovers. I also meal prep 2 days a week.  It works better since I have to also meal prep for my husband's daily meals.

2018 Calendar from Briana Thomas!


Come see my favorite calendar for 2018!

You are all in for a TREAT!  Briana Thomas has done an amazing job on a calendar for 2018.  Each month has a brand new recipe to try.   This year my daughter and I are doing THM together. Can't wait to try all the new recipes each month. It is hard to not go ahead and try that already, but we'll try to be good and wait... I think.

So hurry on over to Briana's store and check out her Calendar and grab them before they are gone. And if you don't already own her cookbook, Necessary Food, might want to snag one of those as well!
