Weekly Meal Plan December 1-5

It’s December! How did that happen?

That first day of December hits and it feels like things get instantly busier. Not only that, but there seems to be treats that pop up everywhere you go. My will power and self discipline are highly tested in December…and usually the treats win out.

It becomes even more important for us to meal plan in December  so that we are not eating out, or eating super unhealthy meals plus all the treats that surround us.

I’m not sure if I succeeded, but the meals I chose this week sound tasty and flavorful.

I didn’t get to this last week so I will make it this week. It’s perfect because the weather has been terribly cold and soup is perfect on a cold day.

Potato Ham Chowder - A warm and filling chowder that's incredibly creamy and rich, perfect for those chilly winter nights!


Another slow cooker meal! I hope it tastes as good as it looks…

I have Parent Teacher conferences on Thursday night, so I want to make something that Andrew can come home to (other than a frozen pizza) and so we have lunches for Friday (and lots of leftovers for the weekend too!) Thank you, slow cooker, for making my life easier.
