Meal Plan Monday – January 18-31

I’m playing catch up posting meal plans for the month, so that I can be on track starting Monday!

This two week plan is a combination of comfort food, quick meals, and tasty options. I’m all about quick and easy meals. The tortilla pie and stroganoff are two of those quickies! Both of them were big hits will the kiddos too.
