Menu for the week of 1/3

Here are the cinnamon rolls I made for Christmas morning - my first time ever!

Hooray! I love a new year! Here's what we are eating this week:

Sunday: Fondue! My kids loved it! I was so excited to eat that I forgot to take a picture. We had it with  Tracy M's meatballs, steamed red potatoes, steamed broccoli, mushrooms, and grapes.

Monday: Cinnamon cottage cheese muffins w/orange wedges and milk (I didn't like the way they turned out and will never make them again)

Tuesday: Chicken and sweet potato soup w/crusty bread  (Tuesday edit: so yummy! Definitely making this again!)

Wednesday: Taco chicken bowls

Thursday: Pasta (w/sauce from the freezer), green beans, crusty bread

Friday: homemade pizza

Saturday: Bean thing (black beans, diced tomatoes, assorted spices, cheese, wrapped into a tortilla)

Sunday: I'm thinking of doing a turkey, just to have all the fabulous leftovers. Am I insane to do turkey again so soon? I have one in my freezer. (Saturday edit: we got invited to someone's house for dinner. I'll save the turkey for another week.)

P.S. Have you checked out my giveaway? It's open til January 8th.

"Am I insane to do turkey again so soon?"

Probably, but never let such a minor thing get in the way of a good idea. I say enjoy that turkey!

I have made cinnamon rolls a couple of times from different recipes and haven't loved them. They weren't particularly soft and chewy, which is what I am looking for in a cinnamon roll (besides the butter, cinnamon, and sugar, obviously). How are these? Divine? Pretty good? So-so?

And, do you just do the second rise in the refrigerator overnight after you cut the dough into rolls?
