Cold Weather Heritage Dinners

It’s cold. Colder than it’s been in my five years living on the East Coast.

As much as I would love to stay under a blanket all day, I, like many of you, must feed myself. Here are a two of my favorite easy winter dishes – delicious meals that have the added benefit of heating up your kitchen!

Lasagna

Lasagna

A cheesy, tomato filled dish with a thick, meaty sauce featuring Heritage Ground Pork or Beef is a great dinner with great leftovers for days. Favorite recipes include Butternut Squash and Pork Lasagne from the Food Network and this easy Beef Lasagne from The Pioneer Woman.

Shepherd’s Pie

Potatoes, cheese, veggies, and meat – what more could you ask for on a cold evening? Alton Brown at the Food Network has an easy recipe featuring ground lamb and BBC Food has a fun alternative featuring beef chilli.

What are some of your favorite cold weather dinners?
