Day 22 starts Get Cooking Week. Woo hoo! This week’s focus will be to explore frugal holiday meals, plan family dinners, and clean out freezers. I like to double one or two meals each week starting (I started the end of October, but you can start any time) that I know freezes well, cool, wrap well, label and freeze it for during the holiday season. It doesn’t take extra time on my part while I am cooking a meal for dinner that night, but does it ever save me time and energy when I need a cooking night off during the up coming festivities.
The recipe is a Thanksgiving Blessing Mix. As Bugles have gluten and dairy, I would skip that and make a cone out of construction paper and nestle the snack mix inside for the cornucopia part of the mix. Replace the M & M’s with GFCF snack of your choice (such as Gorilla Munch) and replace the Hershey Kisses with gluten and dairy free chocolate chips. Alter the gift tag to reflect the changes.
