What’s for Dinner? Week of December 9, 2013


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Holiday season is bustling with people shopping, wrapping, baking and decorating. I love this time of year, but I do admit it can be a bit overwhelming. Planning home-cooked dinners for the week is sometimes that last thing on our minds, but in the long run it is healthier and will save you money :). Something I know I wouldn’t mind doing this time of year. For dinners this week I reached back and picked some classics that I know are easy to prepare and taste great. On Monday, I tried a Pinterest recipe from Budget Bytes, Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas, and they were delicious. A little bit of chopping then throw it all in the oven. Comes out delicious and just like the restaurants. Tuesday, I made a comfort food classic, Turkey Chili. Warm and satisfying, your family won’t even know you used turkey. This chili is great for leftovers, too, like on the Nachos for dinner on Friday. On Wednesday I grilled up some steaks and made some of the deliciously creamy bacon stuffed mushrooms and for Thursday we went a little healthier with our Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads. So, don’t let the stress of the holidays overwhelm you into grabbing take out every night. Make a list and a quick stop at the grocery store, and make delicious home-cooked dinners all week long. (Your wallet will thank you too) Make the first bite count!
