This week’s meal ideas are all about cozy comfort food! We’re using the crock pot and getting a jump on our holiday treats to make life easy. I know you’re going to love these Italian Stuffed Eggplant Boats with sausage and wild rice just as much you’ll love a big bowl of short cut potato soup with a slice of muffuletta crescent ring sandwich to dip!
This Week’s Secret to Success
The weather is chilly and it gets dark early, but we aren’t going to let that stop up from getting cozy comfort food on our tables! So this week, we’re giving our slow cookers a work out while embracing the season.
- We’re using the crock pot to cook soup while we’re busy with our days and breakfast while we sleep!
- Go ahead and get started on that holiday baking. Pralines freeze & thaw wonderfully, and will taste great on Christmas Eve and Day. They also make great gifts. Just use wax paper between layers if you have to stack them to freeze, store or give.
Dessert This Week!
Wonderfully indulgent, Louisiana Pralines are all about buttery southern pecans wrapped in blankets of rich, soft, fudge-like caramel candy made from brown sugar, cream, and butter. A true, easy-to-make southern tradition, Pralines are the perfect Christmas candy! Start this week to get a jump on your Christmas treat making. Pralines make ideal gifts too.

Topped with pecans, gingersnaps, and drizzled with real cream, this overnight gingerbread baked oatmeal is completely indulgent, fills the air with all the warm, wonderful smells of the holiday while you are sleeping, and is completely ready when you get up! Could it get any better? I say no.
