Menu Plan Monday

We have a busy week this week, as I am sure you all have!

-On Wednesday we have our very dear friends coming over for dinner. I am doing the meat and dessert and she is bringing the sides. I will be making my mom's famous Anisette cookies for dessert. I'll try to remember to take a picture of them before they are gone!

-We spend Christmas Eve at my Mother-in-Law's home. I am going to be preparing some veggie sides and a vegan dessert.

-This will be the first Christmas that I am cooking by myself. Usually my mom and I do it together and have a blast, but this year she will be having Christmas in NY with my brother, nephew and some special friends, so I am on my own. During the Thanksgiving sales I purchased a couple of turkey's, so we'll be having one of those. Though the menu plan looks simple, I am going to embelish, just haven't done the research yet. I'll get back to you on that ;) All sides and desserts will be vegan that I can assure you.
