Menu 2014: December 1-January 4

With this holiday filled season, I decided to get some help with my menu by using some of the national food days as inspiration for our meals. I had fun looking over the different "food" holidays and picking a few to add to my menu for this month. We've got lots going on with Christmas and New Year celebrations, but we still need to make time for some family traditions. What are some things that your family does every year during the holidays? One of ours is putting the kids in their new Christmas jammies (they get a new pair every year) and driving through a light display with a big thermos of hot cocoa and some snacks (cookies, bars, muffins, etc.).
Here's the link to the printable menu, and here's the link to the editable menu (Word doc).
