Looking for some easy comforting meals you can whip up this week? We’ve gotcha covered with alfredo mac & cheese, chicken noodle soup, brie sandwiches, crispy chicken tenders, and oatmeal waffles.
Whether it’s bad weather, illness, or a no-good, terrible, very bad day, comfort food helps turns things around. Next to the Holy Spirit, I believe food is the great comforter. That’s why God made it so good.
This week’s meal plan features all kinds of comfort foods: fried chicken, mac and cheese, chicken noodle soup…. You name it, it’s here. It’s jam packed with all kinds of budget-friendly, kid-pleasing meals.
This is meal plan #39. There are so many great meal plans to choose from, but starting in March, with meal plan #41, we’ll be offering something new. I’m really excited by all the behind-the-scenes tweaking we have planned. If you’ve got anything on your wish list, let us know in the comments!
