Thrive at Five Meal Plan – Week #5 ~ A weekly meal plan for busy parents. This week’s plan features a unique sweet potato recipe, a traditional Latin holiday dish and a fluffy eggnog pancakes recipe for your holiday breakfast or brunch.
Hey guys! Another weekly meal plan here. YAY!
I have to say, this holiday season has caught me completely unprepared. I don’t know what it is about this year, but things have gotten a bit crazy around here. I feel like things are coming at me and I can’t even see them. If you knew me well, you’ll know that nothing gives me more anxiety than feeling unprepared for things. I usually have a plan and strategy for e.ve.ry.thing.
Lately, I haven’t been so good at any of those two things and as you can imagine, my anxiety is at a Empire State building level. Not only that, my mom is coming to visit for a week from New York, which has me running around frantically trying to get organized with things.
Well, the good thing is that I was able to get my meal planning in place for the week. So, things cannot be that bad. Right?
I’ll get it together, eventually. If not, let us hope for a smoother 2017.
I will leave you here with this awesome meal plan for the week, while I go start my holiday shopping strategy. Yes folks, I haven’t gotten there yet. But, I’m on it. 🙂
I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to share the weekly Thrive at Five Meal Plan. Our goal is to help you get a homemade dinner on the table quickly and easily without the daily battle of deciding what to cook for dinner. Every Friday, we will be doing a round up of recipes to help you plan out your meal for the week and also include a little treat or two.
This week’s plan features a unique sweet potato recipe, a traditional Latin holiday dish, a delicious vegetarian soup made in the slow cooker and even a fluffy eggnog pancakes recipe for your holiday breakfast or brunch.
