All recipes in this week's Meal Plan (except one) come courtesy of Jamie Oliver and his awesome website. It is a wealth of knowledge, recipes, products, and information on his foundation. I personally have never made any of his meals before, but I am thoroughly looking forward to the challenge and am going to give it my best try.
Right off the bat, my first hurdle was trying to figure out one of the measurements he uses frequently; a "knob" of butter, so I "Googled" it and found this. In my meals, a knob will equal approximately 1 heaping Tbs give or take.

Phew! Can you believe next week's Meal Plan is going to include Christmas Dinner??? I am a lucky duck this year because even though we are hosting Christmas Dinner at our house, I am not cooking the feast. A friend will be doing all the cooking, BUT I am in charge of desserts for the 24th, 25th, 27th, 28th AND the 29th as well as Brunch for the 25th, and Appies for the 25th, and 29th!!!
I have my work cut out for me next week for sure... I better start hunting down some good recipes. If you have any tried, true and beloved holiday recipes that you would like to share please comment on this post or drop me a line. I appreciate any ideas!
Have a great week!
