I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We are up at the cabin for a few days and had a perfect day of present opening, relaxation, and of course – good food! It was also extra special this year because it was Lars’ first Christmas. Although he doesn’t understand any of it yet, it’s still so fun to start new traditions with him and have him as part of our family. He is such a joy!
I’m pretty sure I’ll be in the holiday spirit for the entire next week through New Years, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have to figure out what to make for dinner. Which means you do, too! Luckily, we have some pretty delicious options this week. We also adapted it so on New Years Eve you have a healthy appetizer option and on New Years Day you have a breakfast/brunch recipe. Fun, right?!
Have a great weekend! I’m taking the rest of the year off from blogging to enjoy some extra relaxation with my friends and family. See you next year with some more healthy recipes!

Prep Ahead: chop up the vegetables a day in advance.
Saffron Vegetable Soup with Quinoa from Flavor the Moments.
Prep Ahead: This soup comes together so quickly, but you can prep your veggies ahead of time to make things go even faster!
Creamy Sweet Potato and Black Bean Pasta Skillet from Cookie Monster Cooking.
