The holiday season is approaching!
Are you ready?
The best thing to keep me sane during the hectic season is to stick to a meal plan as much as possible. Having a plan ahead of time gives me one less thing to think about when the days get busy with family visits and holiday parties.
This time of year can be extremely stressful and amazingly joyful making the magic happen for your kids. Savor every minute of it!
Enjoy this meal plan as you get ready for the festivities of the holiday season. The focus is cheap and healthy meals to help balance the feasts and treats. As always, feel free to substitute as needed!
