Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of December 22nd
Can you believe it? Christmas is this Thursday! Keep your family well fed all week with these crowd-pleasing dinner options. For this recipe, save time by microwaving the potatoes until tender.
Quinoa has had another outstanding year, so we chose to highlight it in this easy chicken dinner. Serve the chicken and sauce over the quinoa with Coriander Carrots on the side.
Christmas Eve calls for comfort food, and this slow-cooker stew fits the bill perfectly. Let it cook all day while you run errands and finish wrapping presents, and then sit down with the family to admire the tree aglow and appreciate time spent together.
Fluffy Mashed Potatoes
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Whether your Christmas dinner involves 2 people or 20, pork tenderloin is a nice change of pace from the usual holiday ham. Sweet potato wedges and green beans complete the meal.
After the excess of the holidays, it's nice to sit down to a light, refreshing meal. This seafood supper may be light, but it's big on flavor.
