Simplify and lighten up the week after Thanksgiving with these 2 easy meal ideas for your family. Plus, ideas for lighter snacks, a quick breakfast and a dessert to nibble for those moments when you need a little something sweet.
This Meal Plan’s Secret To Success
Everyone loves a Catalina Taco Salad! And there is nothing easier to whip up and more satisfying than this retro dinner salad after a couple of days of heavy holiday meals and leftovers.
And speaking of leftovers, if you happen to have any leftover turkey, Chicken & Wild Rice is the perfect recipe for using up any of those last pieces of turkey that haven’t made it on a sandwich. Delicious, creamy, and oh-so savory, your family won’t even recognize that leftover turkey and you will have efficiently (and deliciously!) used all of the holiday bird!
Dessert This Week
Even though we’ve had all the Thanksgiving pie we can hold, there are always those post holiday moments when just a little something sweet would hit the spot. You’ll feel good about having these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies around. With warm cinnamon, tender, plump raisins, and a pop of oats, this recipe has a secret step that will change everything you know about oatmeal raisin cookies.
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
A light snack can take the place of a meal on a post holiday week. Don’t underestimate how stasifying a bowl of homemade pimento cheese can be! Served with crackers, some fruit and stuffed in celery, this easy homemade Southern pimento cheese recipe with diced jalapenos delivers classic, old fashioned taste with a kick.
Making Breakfast Easy
Take a break from the kitchen and cooking with these easy Peanut Butter Yogurt Parfaits with Apples & Pumpkin Granola. Rich, velvety layers of greek yogurt, mixed with peanut butter, honey and spices with the crisp crunch of fall apples and sweet pumpkin granola make this treat you and yours will want to eat all the time!
