Hey y’all! It’s me, Brenda from Meal Planning Magic. You’re receiving this email newsletter because you signed up--maybe a while ago--to receive an extra weekly email where I share a little bit about meal planning, seasonal content I think you might enjoy and a little bit more about me.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Remember, you can now expect an email every Wednesday morning at 6:00 am CST for a little Midweek Meal Planning Magic. So here you go!

The cold weather has finally hit our part of Texas and I'm starting to feel a bit more into the spirit of the season. Our cold is nothing like the cold some of you all experience but temps in the 30's (F) are enough for me! I love Thanksgiving and all the fun activities happening in December so I'm hoping to be able to just enjoy the ride! We'll be spending Thanksgiving with family and doing some of our favorite traditions--I can't wait! We've been making lots of hot cocoa so I'm good with this cold weather sticking around awhile.

Read on to find some weekly inspiration!

On The Blog

With this week's cold weather, I'm loading up on yummy soups to warm us up. Yesterday I made one of our favorites - Slowcooker Ground Turkey Vegetable Barley Soup. This soup is SO simple to throw together and it's no secret that I love my slowcooker! You can check out all of my slowcooker recipes by clicking here.

What I'm Watching

I'm not really sure where I've been but it seems as though all my friends have been buzzing lately about the newest season of The Great British Baking Show! I decided to check it out myself and if you remember in last week's email, it's no secret that I love the baking challenge shows so I was delighted to finally discover this one! If you want to start from the beginning like I do, you can watch past seasons on Netflix, otherwise you can catch current season episodes Fridays on PBS at 9ET/8CT. If you have a favorite episode or contestant I should watch for, please let me know!
