meal plan tuesday: dec 18.

i am currently stuck in the most wonderful kind of survival mode i have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. the sink is overflowing with dishes. the mountain of dirty laundry has taken over my entire bedroom floor and pretty well emptied my closet. what little bit of clean laundry i have managed to do remains unfolded. the dining room table is so covered in stuff we can't even sit at it to eat. the table in the nook is the same way. every horizontal surface is cluttered with an assortment of mail, christmas cards, projects, and randomness that will take forever to sort through. the fireplace room is an explosion of various christmas present wrappings.

and i love it.

for the past two weeks, instead of spending my time stressing about having everything neat and clean and orderly and doing the things i feel i have to do, i have been doing the things that i want to do. i have been crafting dozens of homemade christmas presents. i have been watching movies on weeknights. i have been going out to the movies. i have been getting my nails done. i have been laughing so so hard. i have been going out to eat. i have been hanging out with friends. and it is awesome.

so what if my christmas cards aren't adorably displayed this year and the dinners i've been making have been far from elaborate? we are having a ton of fun this christmas season and i wouldnt have it any other way.

so on the menu this week we've got another bunch of low-key meals to make more time for merriment, crafting, and hopefully finding a little bit of time to actually clean up the house a little before our community group christmas party!

Monday: crock pot roast and veggies.
Tuesday: tilapia with rice.
Wednesday: taco night.
Thursday: crock pot beef burgundy. (recipe)
Friday: leftovers.
Saturday: family Christmas party!
Sunday: soup from a can.
