What's Cookin' This Week - 12/13 - 12/12

This is push week for getting things done - important Christmas gift stitching, and baking/candy making for gifts as well - so I'm not feeling inspired much in terms of dinner prep, nor wanting things to be too complex on days when I've already been cooking and cleaning the dishes repeatedly throughout the day.

So... trying to keep things simple:

Monday, Dec 13
Kraft Mac n Cheese with Beef

(pre-prep for tomorrow:  hard-boil 4 eggs; soak blackbeans)

Tuesday, Dec 14 (Meatless)
Black Bean Soup (from Twelve Months of Monastery Soups)
Cheese Quesadillas

Wednesday, Dec 15
Cook's Night Off - Fend for Selves

Thursday, Dec 16
Chicken and Rice
Green Beans

Friday, Dec 17
Enchilada Casserole (from freezer)

Saturday, Dec 18
Leftovers - Deanna not home

Sunday, Dec 19
Sweet Potato Fries
