January tends to be very cold here in beautiful Boise, Idaho. It makes me want to cook a lot of hot and nourishing soups to comfort and warm us. My family enjoys a really good and flavorful soup. Paired with homemade bread or biscuits and a nice fresh and crisp salad makes for a delicious well rounded meal.
I usually make a weekly soup meal throughout the year, however, when the weather is bitterly cold outside I tend to make hot soups more often. Another benefit of these simple meals is that I save a little money on the grocery budget. Soup is a terrific budget stretcher.
Our meal plan for January is as follows:
Taco Soup, Cornbread w/ Honey Butter, Garden Salad
Cheese Omelet, Toast, Sliced Peaches
Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Potato Chips, Baby Carrots
Asian Beef Noodle Soup, Cabbage Salad
Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Garden Salad
Salisbury Steak & Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Pork Verde, Steamed Rice, Black Beans, Lettuce, Cheese, Sour Cream, Salsa
Thai Curry Soup
Baked Pasta & Sausage, Steamed Broccoli
Chicken Corn Chowder, Biscuits, Garden Salad
Pork Fired Rice, Cabbage Salad
Steak Fajitas, Sour Cream, Spanish Rice
Lentil Soup, Dinner Rolls, Garden Soup
Meat Loaf, Baked Potatoes, Roasted Carrots
Tortellini Soup, Garden Salad
Whole Wheat Waffles, Scrambled Eggs, Syrup, Bananas
Black Bean Soup, Corn Bread, Cabbage Salad
Chicken Enchiladas, Garden Salad
Sounds like a good plan to me and the girls heartily agree. They better, they helped me make this plan. 😃
