Christmas is almost here, and I know how busy this time of year can be. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in all of the festivities, obligations, and even chores. This cute and simple printable Christmas meal planner is going to help you keep dinner under control during this chaotic time of year!
Printable Weekly Meal Planner for Christmas
I really do believe planning is more fun when it’s pretty (although all you really need to meal plan is any old piece of paper and writing utensil you have nearby). I love the pretty poinsettias on this printable – poinsettias remind me of my grandmother and always feel like Christmas!
If you’re looking for other Christmas meal planning pages, check out this cute weekly meal planning page, too. You might also like this cute ornament-themed meal planning page! This cheerful gift-themed meal planning page is an oldie but goodie (I love all the colors). And finally – if you need help with your Christmas baking this year (and who doesn’t!), here’s an ebook with everything you need (including printable gift tags) to make this Christmas baking season easier than ever.

How do I use meal planning templates?
My meal planning templates are super flexible and can be put to work in whatever way works best for you. You might use them for just planning dinners, but some people like to plan every meal! You can plan a week at a time, but you may save even more time if you plan a few weeks or even the whole month at once.
The right side of the page has a handy spot to fill in your grocery list to take to the store with you too.
TIP: Don’t throw away your old meal plans! Save them for future weeks when you need some meal planning inspiration.

Can you give me some recipe or meal ideas for Christmas?
Yes! Let’s fill up that meal plan with healthy and hearty winter meals, shall we?
You can’t go wrong with this Instant Pot Bolognese Soup. It’s so delicious, and comes together quickly and easily. I am also a big fan of this Crock Pot Butternut Squash soup (I really like soup in the fall and winter). This Pumpkin Alfredo Pasta also feels like fall. Taco-stuffed Acorn Squash is always a winner. Another favorite is this Parma Rosa Tortellini – it’s so good! And for dessert, how about some pumpkin blondies? And finally…if you need more choices…here’s a collection of 70 Crock Pot recipes that are all under 500 calories (soup, pumpkin, and crock pot = perfect for winter!).
