Menu Plan 12-12 to 12-18

Menu Plan Monday, Friends.

Getting crazier by the minute over here in the Bettelli household.

Some fun stuff coming up this week, but it doesn't leave a whole lot of time for cooking.

Monday - out to eat wherever George picks (within reason).
This is his Advent activity for the day, so we will oblige.

Tuesday - pork chops on the grill, rice, broccoli

Wednesday - @ church

Thursday - Taco night with all the fixin's & yellow rice with black beans

Friday - We will be in Disney:)

Saturday - @ a birthday party for our nephew in Vero Beach

Sunday - @ a church Christmas party with friends

Last week I did manage to get a few Christmas cookies in the oven.
I made a new cookie recipe, and my whole family seemed to love them.
I am going to be nice and share the recipe with you.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies:

Mix together:
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

In separate bowl, mix:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

Add dry ingredients to wet ones & mix well
Pour 12 oz bag of chocolate chips in mixture, & stir together
Refrigerate at least 2 hours (very important and very annoying at the same time).
Roll into balls, then roll in 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Bake @ 350 degrees for 9 1/2 minutes (I had to bake longer, but I think my balls were bigger than they should have been.  FYI).

Here is the finished product:

Have you done any baking lately?
It really is therapeutic.

Happy Monday!
