From brightly colored soup to snacks you can eat by the handfuls, “pops” seem like a great theme for this week’s menu. And if you decide to add a bottle of something sparkly to drink, well, we won’t stop you!
How To Use This Week’s Menu
Can I tell you to skip all the real food and just make a double batch of the Puppy Chow? Probably not. (How about make the regular food AND a double batch of Puppy Chow? 😉
As long as you’re prepping ahead, spend some time making the Firecracker Meatballs with Rice and Green Beans dish components ahead of time. Your Wednesday night self thanks you.
Same goes for the Ham & Peas Cheesy Potato Casserole. It freezes beautifully so make it ahead and/or make a double batch; eat one and freeze the other.
Finally, this winter weather is perfect for a hearty soup. The Cauliflower & Corn Chowder fits the bill perfectly. (Pro-tip: sub all the potatoes for cauliflower if you’re watching carbs this week. The corn can be the treat.)
