When people ask me my tips for holiday eating, I always say — keep up the regular meals! So that’s what I’m doing.
It’s been consistently chilly here in San Diego. I have “Hearty Thursday” going on and I’m trying to keep Fridays easy. I have a few new meals, including a pesto pasta dish. I just made it the other night and it needs a little work. I’m also bringing ravioli back and chicken chili and will be taking a break from Alfredo. I’m not sure how the meals on Christmas week will go but they are planned anyway!
In my last rotation, I tried a red beans and rice dish in the slow cooker and it just kind of bombed. Not sure I want to try again anytime soon. It was spicy without a rich flavor. My husband actually sweat while eating it! Anyone have a good recipe to share?
Moving forward, I’m going to be focusing more on breakfast and lunch meals. I think these very important meals are often ignored. I plan to use the same process detailed in my latest book to come up with a good variety of Tried and True meals, so stay tuned. (more…)
