So, every weekend I sit down and start my grocery list – not from what I think we need to replenish the pantry… I start with a list of 6 dinners for the week & 1 quick back-up for the days time gets away from us. I inherited a stack of 8X5 note cards a while back and I use these for the list each week. The dinner items go on the right side of the card and then I add what I need on the left. I put the list in the order of the grocery store adding general stock items, like OJ, as I go. This list generally gets stuck on the front of the fridge as a guide for the week. All the recipes I use are good for you, easy and quick to make – with a focus on less processed items.
I thought I would blog the list this week and come back with the recipes… I don’t know, it may become a trend… we’ll see…
- Asian Chicken Peanut Salad
- Tomato Basil Soup with Cheese Toast and Asparagus Apple Salad
- Chicken Veggie Soup with Pumpkin Bread
- Pizza Movie Night
- Pinto Beans with Cornbread, Sliced Tomatoes, and Carrot – Apple – Raisin Slaw
The focus for this week is to use the odd bits of veggies left over from last week, use the chicken I have the freezer, buy no new meat, keep the bill low – thus the 2 veggie soups and the beans.
I am going to try an roast tomatoes for the first time this week… we’ll see how that goes!
Happy Sunday everyone… here’s to a fabulous week for everyone.
