Helpful Dinner Ideas to Make Dinner-Time Easier

Happy Monday!  It’s a winter wonderland outside my house, and I love the white bright look of a fresh snow and the thick white blanket that rests on the rooftops.  My littlest guy was so disappointed that we didn’t have a white Christmas, but he is in his glory now and can’t wait to go sledding!
Well now that it’s finally getting chilly after all the unseasonably warm weather, I’m ready to start cooking some warm and comforting soups and stews, and so that’s what I’m featuring on this weeks dinner ideas!  It’s so nice to have a virtually one pot dinner, that can include protein, grains and veggies all in one.
