Looking for some easy meals to warm you up? We’ve gotcha covered with chicken and wild rice bake, slow cooker chili, vegetable beef soup, bacon and broccoli egg bake, and lawnmower taco.
I’m not sure what the weather holds for most of the country. Out here in the west, I’m praying for rain. Drought and wildfire can ravage the southland, so we need a lot more rain. Here’s hoping that this week’s meal plan, full of cozy, raining day meals will have the right weather to suit it.
I know? Praying for rain? I never thought I would do it. I must be a grown-up now.
