Ohio has been showing out with its weather this week, and I could not be happier about it. We’ve been hanging out in the mid-70s with partly sunny skies, crisp mornings, and breezy afternoons. If it could just stay like this until Christmas, I’d be 100% happy about it!
This week’s meal plan is a good mix of comfort food and lighter favorites, all of which are family friendly and good for this busy season. Hopefully that leaves plenty of time for all of you to enjoy this extended mild weather while it lasts!
