Meal Plan Tips:
I’m making lots of food to enjoy as we watch the SEC Championship Football game. Nothing like dips and wings for watching football!
Spinach Artichoke Dip: This is so easy to prep ahead and have in fridge until ready to bake.
Buffalo Chicken Dip: This can be made by any of three methods, but today I’m going to let my slow cooker do the job. It will keep it hot so we can snack on it as we watch the game.
Baked Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings: These wings are perfect for the weekend and for football! I will go ahead and have my wings cleaned and dried and waiting to coat them before baking. My Homemade Buffalo Sauce is made ahead of time and in the fridge.
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing: This is one of our favorite dressings for salads so I will have this ready in my fridge too.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies: These are favorites I’ve loved forever! I’ll make them ahead snacking and an easy dessert!
Chicken and Dumplings: I love to cook this family favorite from my Grandmother on the weekend when I can let it cook low and slow.
Beef Enchiladas: These come together in 30 minutes so they are great for busy nights! They make a great freezer meal too.
The Best Blender Enchilada Sauce is so fresh and delicious – and is ready in minutes!
Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup: So easy and one of our favorite comfort foods! If you are in a rush in the mornings, put the ingredients into the insert the night before, refrigerate and then put the insert back into the slow cooker in the morning to let it cook during the day.
Baked Salmon with Parmesan Herb Crust:
My family loves this salmon! To make prep go even faster, go ahead and grate your Parmesan cheese and chop your parsley. Then, store them in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator and just grab and use when cooking.
This bakes in no time and is great for serving guests too!
The Brown Rice is a snap to make in the Instant Pot and the Skillet Zucchini comes together quickly too!
