Menu Plan - January 23

We hit our first stretch of cold weather this past week.  By cold weather, I mean, truly cold weather.  When I picked Frog Prince up at the airport on Friday morning, it was 18 degrees below zero - before the wind chill.  This called for a slight change in weekend menu plans... more soup!  Thus, there are a few more new recipes on the recap!

This past week, I shared a tour of our new kitchen!!  Thank you all for sharing in our excitement with the renovations - we love our new space and feel so blessed to be able to cook there.

I have one final week before the spring semester begins, so our menu plan has some familiar favorites on it this week.  I love that I have go-to recipes when weeks are busy; it makes dinner time much less stressful!
