It’s Thanksgiving or as I like to think of it, the warm-up for my most favorite time of year…Christmas! We have plans to deck the halls until it looks like the holidays threw-up in here and since this week is wonky due to travel, games and mucho decorating, I menu-planned out this week and into next (I have issues I know). You may notice that all of these recipes are from Cooking Light. There’s no question that I love that magazine, but I typically mix up my recipe choices from all of my favorites as much as I can. But, given that this week I typically let my diet go to hell in a hand basket I try to kick-start my diet back on a healthy eating plan. What better way than to choose recipes that automatically lend themselves towards that? I’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming afterwards, scouts honor.
I hope you have a very, very happy and safe holiday week with your loved ones and oh, yeah, TEXAS FIGHT!
