Christmas is less than a week away. Have you finished your shopping? Is all the baking ready for the festivities? What about the wrapping? Are you the type to wrap as you buy or wait until the night before and do it all at once? If you are busier than ever and stressing about the holidays, the one thing you don’t need to stress about is the Weekly Menu Plan.

Have you tried prepping your meals in advance? This is a great way to prepare portions of your meals when you have more time so that you save time later on. I do a lot of prepping on Sundays when I’m home watching television. I like to put on a couple of episodes of whatever I’m binge watching and watch as I chop veggies, for meals like Crockpot Vegetable Soup or the Holiday Appetizer Bar, mixing sauces up for the Chicken Strips with White BBQ Sauce or cooking the chicken breasts that will be used later this week in the Quick and Easy Chicken Enchiladas. Meal prepping in advance is another way to help get meals on the table in as little time as possible.
