I’ve teamed up with a group of awesome food bloggers to bring you the Thrive at Five Meal Plan- Week #5. We want to help you get homemade dinners on the table, so each Friday we’ll be doing a roundup of recipes to help you plan your weekly dinners…and maybe a few snacks too!
For the Thrive at Five Meal Plan- Week #5 we’ve brought you a nice mix of of dinners. As usual Vanessa is cooking up Latin flavors with Dominican Tamales and Tania has a Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup that is perfect for cold weather (we are expecting a little snow here). I’m also really loving the pancakes from Dee that are perfect for the holidays. Kevin LOVES pancakes so we’re excited to give the recipe a try. But everything looks tasty as always, so scroll down and see this week’s recipes.
On the home front….the holidays are quickly approaching and we are busy shopping, wrapping presents, making cookie dough and preparing for two of our favorite holiday traditions. The first is attending the Navy Band Concert in DC and the second is Christmas Eve with a Secret Santa book exchange. I’m still looking for the perfect book for my secret recipient, a challenge I always enjoy. Maybe it’s because of my name, but I always enjoy giving more than receiving. So, I love putting my heart into every gift… big, small, store bought or homemade!
What are you cooking up for the holidays? It’s such a wonderful time of year filled with tradition and family recipes, so I’d love to hear about what makes your holidays delicious and meaningful.
