It’s December, yay!! I love switching over the calendar to the start of a brand new month especially a month as exciting as December! I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready to set yourselves up for another organized week of menu planning. All you have to do is select 5 easy recipes, pick up the groceries needed and prepare them throughout the week for your family. I think too many of us over think the whole menu planning thing. It just doesn’t have to be complicated gals and don’t let anyone tell you differently :) You will be amazed at the benefits planning a few meals can bring. Try it out this week before the season gets away on us, you will be so happy you did!
Last week’s favorite recipe goes to the Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole in the Crockpot. This was so EASY to throw together, seriously. Comfort food at it’s best, my family went crazy for it. I was happy it didn’t require any cans of cream soup which I try to avoid yet it was still super creamy and delicious. Definitely going into my Family Favorites Recipe Index for sure! Now if only I had a picture to show you right? Yep forgot to take one because we gobbled it up too fast. Sorry! I guess it’s a good thing I’m not a food blogger :)
Also if you missed Angie’s recipe earlier this week for yummy Cranberry Orange Scones, be sure to check it out.
For those that don’t know we have a Menu Plan Monday Facebook page where we can hang out and share recipes and tips. I hope you’ll stop by to mingle and chat and join the community! The box below (it takes a minute to load) will take you right there.
