Super Easy Salad Recipe that goes with Lasagna
With less than a week to go until Thanksgiving, I’ve already started making a list of all the ingredients and meals to complete our dinner. We’ve been this month (year) that I’m thankful not to cook the entire meal this year like I usually do.
We’ll be going over to a friend’s house on the actual day and getting our family meal catered next weekend. While I’m grateful this will take quite a bit off my plate next week, there’s still plenty of our deadlines, events, and appointments that will be keeping us busy.
As busy as it gets around here, my family can’t just stop eating and we can’t afford to go out every night. During the holiday season when I know things are going to be busier than ever. So I like to make sure that my kitchen is stocked with everything I need to put a balanced meal on the table easily.
Easy being the key here. I love easy recipes and you’ll find lots of them on the blog.
