Creamy pasta, hearty stews, a vegetarian dish and crab cakes that can pose as either an appetizer or main dish are on the menu this week! You need to keep up your energy for the holidays, so dive right on it and see what’s up in this week’s meal plan!
Sometimes the best things in life are simple. As you are rushing around to holiday events, this pasta dish from Michelle will be something that you can whip up in no time. Cheese, garlic, fresh lemon, and parsley come together for something fresh and delicious.
This is chicken stew with a twist; toss the veggies with balsamic vinegar, herbs, and olive oil, roast them in the oven, and then toss the whole lot into a stew. Different, but delicious, and just the thing on a blustery winter day.
Want something for an appetizer tray, that can also double as a delicious main? These crab cakes from Real Food Made Easy look amazing. Serve them with some fresh salsa or smoked paprika aioli. My mouth is watering already!
Tofu, pasta, and peppers in a spicy peanut sauce will spice up your week with this delicious dish from Merry With Children! You don’t even have to serve the peppers and tofu over noodles, but try rice or eating it just on it’s own. This comes together quickly, which is just what you need in busy pre-Christmas days
Thai Style Pasta with noodles
There really is nothing like a rich, meaty stew with fluffy dumplings to bring you comfort on a cold winter’s day. The cooking time is long, but is absolutely worth it. Serve with steamed broccoli and big glasses of milk.
