Meal Planning Monday #18

Ohhhhh!  It’s the first week of January!  I love January.  It’s cold, it’s dark, it’s the perfect month to stay inside by the fire wearing thick, fuzzy socks, reading a book and drinking coffee.  January is just cozy.  For this week, I’ve picked simple, satisfying and yummy dinners to keep you cozy and happy all week.

Spicy Chicken Corn Chowder is such a bright and colorful bowl of happiness!
My Mom’s Meatloaf is my husband’s very favorite meal.  Ever.  If you’ve never tried it..you should. Don’t let the word “meatloaf” scare you.  It’s delicious!
Chicken Florentine Lazy Lasagna is a great way to have fancy lasagna on a weeknight!
Quick Mexican Casserole is just that…quick!  This is one of those recipes you’ll make over and over again!
Sausage and Mushroom Rigatoni is a yummy twist on basic spaghetti and meat sauce.  Perfect for cold nights!
Winter White Chocolate Bundt Cake is the obvious choice for this week’s bundt cake :).
Bree’s Fruit Crisp is so, so, so simple and you can mix and match it a million different ways!  Check out the recipe, this is very versatile!  (And yummy!)
Raspberry Oatmeal Bars are our bonus recipe this week because they’re the perfect little after dinner dessert (or even a little breakfast sweet!) for winter.  Goodness.  Simple goodness.
Happy Monday everyone!  See you tomorrow!

    Baked goods are just so much better with some sort of fat in them (oil, butter, shortening) but you could try applesauce instead. It might not slice like a bar and end up more like a cobbler/crisp but the taste will still be excellent!

    I have just recently found your blog and l love it! I made the spinach chicken noodle soup this weekend….yummy! Even my little guys ate it! We are having the slow cooker beef stroganoff tonight! I bought the stuff for lazy lasagna. I have never bought pesto. All I saw in my store aS sun dried tomato pesto…Will this work? Are there different kinds?

    Traditionally, a basil pesto is most common but any pesto will work!
