This week our recipes are all Christmas-themed. Fewer recipes have been included because I know that we all are really busy during this week and are in and out of house a lot (or maybe that is just me).

But one thing that I think is universal is we have a LOT of food on hand. So this week I included a traditional ham glaze recipe and a potato dish to go along with any of your family favorites on the Christmas table, as well as several of my favorite ways to use up the holiday leftovers without feeling like you are eating the same meal over and over again. I also added some of my family's favorite recipes to have around the house during this week.

We'll of course have a more traditional meal plan for the next week.

Have a merry Christmas!
