tip of the week

Nothing beats hot soup in a bread bowl on a cold night! And it’s easier than you think to make! Some tips to remember:

  • Remember to “grade” the dough to ensure an even rise.
  • Use egg wash before baking to create a crisp, shiny finish.
  • Do not throw away the inside of the bread bowl. After scooping out the middle, use that bread to make crumbs or slices for other recipes!

Meal Plan Benefits

There’s nothing worse than fear when family members ask, “What’s for dinner?” And your answer is “I don’t know”. A week meal plan eliminates that completely, and it’s the number one benefit in my book!

In addition to developing a game plan, there are Several other benefits meal plan, include:

  • cost: When you have a plan and a specific grocery list in place, you can eliminate the cost of wasting on impulse items or products you never use.
  • reduce waste: No money wasted, no food wasted! Having a regular shopping list will help avoid both problems.
  • type: Our meal plans specifically include a variety of options, including Mexican, Italian, dinner breakfast, and more! You can let your family taste a variety of cuisines.
  • No indecision: Did you know there is “indecision fatigue”? The idea is that when you can’t decide something (like what to do for dinner), it actually tires you out. But when dinner is already planned, you can avoid indecision altogether!
  • healthy: When you plan/anticipate making well-rounded meals, you’re more likely to actually make them than to default to a convenient box lunch or unhealthy fast food!

As you can see, meal planning has many benefits!
