December is here! Can you believe we’re in the last month of the 2016 year? Thanksgiving is behind us and Christmas is on the horizon, which means lots of sweet treats and family gatherings. It also means much cooler weather and snowfall is in the very near future – at least where we live. This month there are several different soup recipes for those nights when you just want to curl up by the fire and enjoy some comfort food.
There are also quite a few slow cooker meals this month as the temperatures continue to drop and lead us in to Winter. Feel free to move those around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef) and salads to hopefully keep everyone happy. I continued to keep slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays to help with those often busy days and nights. Feel free to pick and choose what works for you and your family or even move things around if you need a slow cooker meal on another day. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation. Once again I have included some quick and easy Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dessert ideas to help you throughout the month.
