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 had this meal plan ready in my queue for awhile, but summer holidays and activities have kept me from making the coordinating grocery list.  There's some great fresh summer produce in here and even some quick dinners on those busy summer nights.  My next summer meal plan will definitely involve some grilled recipes and some summery fresh salads....I've been having major cravings for those two things lately!  What meals do you like to plan on these hot, busy summer days?

Day 1: Sweet Mustard and Herb Roasted Chicken and Potatoes with Green Beans
I love this roasted chicken and if you roast it in a big soup pot you can catch all the delicious drippings and make a fantastic stock in the same pot.  Save some chicken to make Baja Quesadillas and Chicken and Rotini Soup and use up the delicious stock you made as well. How's that for resourceful?


Day 2: Baja Quesadillas and Southwestern Salad
A super quick meal that can be thrown together in minutes.  If you're short on time and you need the meal to be even quicker, opt to forego the southwestern salad and make one of those pre-made salads in a bag.



Day 3: Tex Mex Chicken and Rotini Soup
This is totally a "leftover soup" made with leftover chicken and chicken stock from the first night.  If you don't have all the veggies on the grocery list, don't specifically buy "1 rib of celery" to make this soup...just use up whatever you have in your fridge.


Day 4: Spaghetti with Smoked Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Asparagus with Side Salad
Mmmmm, love this delicious pasta.  It's perfect for summer.


Day 5: Donair Meatballs in Pitas
We love to go out to eat Donairs, and these donair meatballs with sweet sauce make a really great at-home substitute.
