My house is a disaster zone. We’re moving in two weeks and everything that is usually neatly tucked away has spilled out into our living area. It’s a hot mess. I can barely walk from one room to another, yet alone put together a glorious dinner. Needless to say, I’m going back to basics for the next two weeks. My recipes will be either based around using up pantry/refrigerator staples that I don’t want to move OR be delivered to my house via Papa John’s.
But my undoing doesn’t have to be yours. For the next two weeks, I’ll be sharing with you some “Best of the Best” recipes in our Foodie Family Menu Series. These are tried and true. I hope you enjoy them! Oh, and next week? Our menu is coming straight from you! Add your favorite recipe in our Linkup tool! Can’t wait to see what you share!
