January Meal Plan Week 1; tips and tricks
All the recipes this week are one’s we’ve made before that don’t require too much prep work. I will Meal Prep on Sunday to make things a little easier. The Ravioli Casserole & Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole will be made ahead and stored in the fridge. I’ll also prep all the vegetable and the sauce for Kung Pao Chicken and steam the rice. I’ll spend about an hour total in the kitchen but I’ll be ready for my week ahead.
