Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 53)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 53)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 53). So this week I taped a spot for News12LI, what a great experience! For those in the area it airs in two weeks on Tuesday morning. As you get ready for Christmas parties and cookie swaps check these out…Gingerbread Christmas Trees, White Chocolate Oatmeal Lace Coookies, and for a traditional “no meat” Christmas Eve that some celebrate, Quick Mussels Fra Diavolo.

This week’s meal plan features some easy meals that also make great leftovers for lunch. Meal planning is a great way to get organized before heading to the supermarket to get ready for the week! My breakfast is usually something quick like eggs with fruit, a smoothie or avocado toast. We’re a family of four, so if a recipe serves more, it’s either packed up for everyone’s lunch or eaten the next day as leftovers. If you would like to see some of the previous week’s dinner plans, click here
