Matzoh Ball Soup is just what the doctor ordered.
I love cooking for my fiancé and planning meals for us, but cooking for two often proves to be difficult. If I don't make a plan, I end up running around in circles at the grocery store and wasting half the ingredients I've bought (and I hate wasting food). Enter What's Cooking This Week - my meal plan and grocery guide. This way, I can make the most of my ingredients and my leftovers.

Last week, Thanksgiving leftovers got turned into the ultimate Next-Day Sandwich. This week, Zucchini Latkes are served alongside both Pan-Roasted Chicken and Bacon & Eggs.

Here's the rest of the plan:

  • Bacon & Eggs w/ Zucchini Latkes & Texas Toast
