Here's the meal plan for January 8-14, y'all. The holidays are over and winter is in full swing!
📅 Food Holidays
We celebrate a couple of fun food holidays this week. They're silly little holidays but it gives us an opportunity to make some memories and have some fun!
- January 9 is National Apricot Day and it doesn't get better than this jam!
- January 12 is National Glazed Donut Day - give these easy chocolate glazed donuts a try!
💭 Tips for success
Here are some tips for this week -
- Make extra chicken when you make the Texas 2-Step Chicken to use in the BBQ Chicken Pizza later in the week.
- Leftover creamed corn? Use it in place of the corn kernels in the Cowboy Casserole.
- Leftover pot roast gets repurposed into Shepherd's Pie.
