Grocery List:
The grocery list is color coordinated by meal so you can easily pick and choose which meals you would like to make. Either print and use the grocery list as is and make all the meals I have planned, or easily cross off the meals and corresponding ingredients you would rather not make.

I've got some fun full-flavored meals scheduled this week. The homemade tomato sauce is something you may want to make on the weekend when you've got a bit of extra time, and the Salmon with Hoisin Glaze is a dish you'll want to make when you're strapped for time. Let's lighten up the winter blahs and get into some delicious flavors.

Day 1: Baked Chicken in Tomato Sauce with Olives over Spaghetti with a simple salad
While you are making the homemade tomato sauce for this dish, make a double batch and freeze it. You can make another amazing dish later in the month by tossing the sauce with pasta, goat cheese and spinach or by simply baking it with Italian sausages. So yum.

Day 2: Salmon with Hoisin Glaze with Toasted Almond Cous Cous and Steamed Broccoli
When you are in need of a super quick supper in your week turn to this one. By using salmon fillets you can make the whole entire meal in 15 minutes flat!

Day 3: Indian-Spiced Chicken Burgers with Tomato/Avocado/Mozza Salad
These burger patties are full of flavor and a nice twist on a classic. You can either serve it in pita pockets, Greek pitas or some warmed naan bread.

Day 4: Hoisin Cashew Beef in Lettuce Wraps
To cut down on your grocery bill, it's a great idea to use the some of the same items to make other meals in the week. Dip into that delicious sweet Asian BBQ flavor again later in the week by making these Hoisin Cashew Beef wraps. Served with some sticky rice and wrapped in lettuce leaves, you'll love these guys.

Day 5: Ginger Maple Glazed Chicken with Sushi Rice and Peas
Easy chicken legs with a sweet glaze makes for a really hands off meal. Throw some sushi rice in a pot and some frozen peas in the microwave and you've got a complete dinner with very little effort.
