The Weekly (Christmas) Menu, December 19-25

Woo-hoo, Christmas is less than a week away! I’m almost done with shopping, but nowhere near done with wrapping. Amazed at the sales and contests out there!

Did you know that if you join Amazon Mom – and you don’t have to be a mom, just a parent or caregiver (details on the link)- you can get a free Amazon Prime membership for a year? Don’t know what Amazon Prime is? It’s a service Amazon offers that includes free two-day shipping. So if you are out there and haven’t finished your shopping yet, this could be just the thing! Not to mention all your other year-long obligations and needs.

Weekly Menu:

Sunday: Last week’s salmon was so good that we’re reprising it: Salmon with Sweet Chili Glaze and Roasted Green Beans. And fyi for those of you in NYC: the Eataly fish counter rocks. Best salmon I’ve had in a dog’s age.

Making the cover recipe!

Monday: Reprising an old favorite from the Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast cookbook: Chicken with Tomatoes, Olives & Cilantro

Tuesday: Grilled Skirt Steak (marinated in Tony’s) with Spicy Oven-Roasted Vegetables

Wednesday: Burrito night– or maybe we’ll go for the Black Bean Tacos with Feta Slaw from Smitten Kitchen

Thursday: Orecciette with Roasted Broccoli and Walnuts

Friday & Saturday: Christmas festivities! Cookies for Santa. General merriment and loud conversation. Late night wrapping. Can’t wait.

I’m obsessed with this Christmas Rum Cake on the home page of The Pioneer Woman. Someone in the next week and 1/2 is going to get lucky when I make it.

    Wow~ we love SK’s black bean tacos w/ that yummy slaw too. AND I just tried Tony’s marinade (which I saw thanks to you guys!) on some sirloin that I marinated and grilled for guests last week. Yum. It was great. W/ baked potatoes, Fly High Kale Salad (from Stay at Stove DAd) & Apple Crisp for dessert. Managed to make it dairy- AND gluten-free for our guests!

    Hey, Cay, so glad you’re trying and liking the recipes! We LOVE Tony’s Marinade — use it all the time. And your dinner sounds great!
