Meal Plan Tips:
Homemade Three Cheese White Pizza: We always seem to have extra teenagers at our house during the weekend and they always love this pizza – and so do we! I’ll have my easy Homemade Pizza Dough made ahead of time, so supper will come together in a snap!
Chicken Cacciatore: This cooks in one skillet and is a delicious comforting meal! Even though this is very simple, I like to chop my herbs and other ingredients ahead of time if I’m planning to be busy that day.
I’m baking cookies and making candies today for Christmas!!! I linked to my Make Ahead Favorite Christmas Cookies and a few candy recipes. I’ll be making several recipes for us to enjoy through Christmas and to share with others. There are so many cookies in that post, along with helpful tips for making them ahead!
Taco Soup: Such a quick, easy and delicious favorite for supper! I share instructions on how to make this on your stove top, in your slow cooker or in your Instant Pot. It’s perfect for a busy weeknight!
I keep my Salsa made and in my fridge since we enjoy it so much. We will have some of our Christmas cookies or candy for dessert tonight. 😉
One Pan Pesto Chicken: This super simple, favorite dish comes together all in one pan and cooks in less than 30 minutes! To prep ahead, I’ll make my pesto and have in the fridge. I will cut up the chicken ahead of time too.
Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice: This tastes so scrumptious and is so easy to cook in the slow cooker! You can make your rice ahead and reheat, but I’ll just make the rice right before serving. It is ready in minutes.
Have fun baking cookies and making candy if you join in!
