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.
This week I decided to plan a week of Looneyspoons recipes from the cookbook I'm reviewing. The great thing about these recipes is that they are flavorful, easy, and healthy. I also purposely chose recipes where you could use some of the same ingredients for more than one recipe; that's a great way to plan your week smartly.
Day 1: Roasted Chicken Thighs with Rice 'n' Easy Casserole
This creamy, cheesy, broccoli, cauliflower and rice casserole is easy to throw together. Toss some chicken in your favorite spice mixture and roast them alongside the casserole for a no-brainer meal.
Day 2: Asian Beef Noodle Soup
This flavorful recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes and hits all the right notes when you are craving a good Asian soup.
Day 3: Lemon Basil Grilled Shrimp over Roasted Chicken Wild Rice and Grilled Asparagus
I freakin' love these shrimp! The marinade is fantastic and they take only a few minutes to grill up. Throw some asparagus on the grill alongside it, and serve with the leftover package of roasted chicken and wild rice mix from earlier in the week and you've got a super tasty and easy meal.
This pork recipe along with the slaw allows you to use a lot of the same ingredients you used earlier in the week in the soup, yet in a completely different format with different tastes.
Day 5: Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken over Rice with Peas
This one's a no-effort meal for the end of the week when you're tired.
