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 love being on the ball with my meal plans: making double of one ingredient to roll over and be used in the next, or making double of a casserole to store in the freezer for those times when you are too tired to cook.  To be honest, this rarely happens for me.  You really have to think ahead, so I thought I'd help you out and be on the ball for both of us this week.


Day 1: Cashew Chicken over Rice with Edamame
This is a quick and delicious chicken to serve over rice.  Our family has recently discovered individual frozen bags of edamame that you steam in the microwave for a couple minutes and then toss with some salt.  The kids love it and it's an extremely easy side dish.


 Day 2: Balsamic Caramelized Onion and Potato Frittata with Salad and Crusty Bread
This is a great dish for enjoying a meatless meal.  Make double the amount of caramelized onions and save the rest for stuffed chicken breasts later in the week.


Day 3: Chicken Stuffed with Brie and Balsamic Caramelized Onions with Rice Pilaf and Peas
Wow, get ready for flavour.  This chicken is sweet and savoury, crunchy and oozing with melty cheese.



Day 4: Best Lasagna with Caesar Salad
This is such a great lasagna.  You could double the recipe and make an extra one to store in your freezer for a lazy day.

Day 5: Bruschetta Baked Salmon with Salad
Feel good about  eating this full flavoured healthy meal.

    I just found your blog last night and on behalf of myself and my family, I'd like to thank you! Since my second child was born a little over a year ago, I've been making the same few things over and over, because I haven't taken the time to plan anything new. So last night I picked a week, printed the shopping list, and went shopping this morning! Tonight, I started with the Authentic Mexican Tacos and everyone raved!! Can't wait to cook the Jamie Oliver Burger tomorrow! Neither can my husband! I've learned a lot already and can't wait to gain the ability to meal plan on my own. Thanks again! Beth


  3. That's so great Beth!
