“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-gley.”

Thank you, Robbie Burns.  And thanks as well to my sister-in-law who has always been fond of the phrase, “Man plans and God laughs.”  (Der mentsh trakht un got lakht.) 

When I prepared last week’s menu plan, I failed to take into consideration that the week contained not only Christmas, but also Christmas Eve.  Not only that, but Christmas Day fell smack on no-cook Friday.  Something had to give. My guess was that it wouldn’t be Christmas. 😉 So, Christmas Eve became our no-cook dinner, but the day was spent in the kitchen prepping for Christmas Day which has a very specific menu.  Once our no-cook Thursday dinner was finished – early, too, since our favorite grill closed at 5:30 PM and, in order to avoid any potential last-minute crush of orders, we actually ordered at 4:30 PM – we headed back into the kitchen to prep the sticky buns for Christmas Day brunch.  As a result of the shifting menu, we did not get to have the cheeseburgers on pretzel rolls and, since we only eat red meat once every couple weeks, I’ve put stuffed peppers on this week’s menu plan since my Misfits box contained a few more sweet peppers than will be used in other meals this week. 

Tonight’s (Christmas) dinner was leftover quiche with some fruit.  Dinner on Christmas Day is always an easy leftover meal, which is wonderful after a day full of excitement.  😉

I try each week to include two each of vegetarian, chicken/poultry, and seafood entrées.  Every couple of weeks I throw in a red meat entrée instead of a poultry recipe.  And thus I give you this week’s menu plan:

Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.” Psalm 17:5
