Add these two great sides for a complete holiday feast!
  • Serve the leftover kugel with eggs for breakfast later in the week. 
  • Make a double batch of these carrots. Reserve half to make a carrot soup later in the week. Just chop the roasted carrots and add to a soup pot, cover by 1 inch with stock of choice or water (or a mix of both) and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Blend soup to desired consistency, adding more stock or water if needed.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  A dollop of the cumin aioli would be nice here!


Monday: Go Meatless 

Everyone needs a go-to quick and healthy weeknight dinner, and these Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes with Tahini by@young_rebecca are a current favorite.  Kids will have fun adding their toppings of choice, and the whole process will only take about 40 minutes.  Need something even faster?
