Here is your weekly meal plan and shopping list!
This week, you’ll use several different types of vegetables for corn soup, fiesta wraps and taco salad. We have listed a side salad to go with Wednesday’s pasta dish; plan to use half of your head of lettuce for that, along with any odds and ends — bits of bell pepper, carrots, onion and so on — that may be leftover from Monday and Tuesday evenings.
Similarly, you’ll use quinoa in Tuesday’s Fiesta Wraps, and will have some leftover to cook for Thursday night, to go with the lemon pepper chicken. The chicken recipe calls for white wine or water, but we recommend using chicken broth this week instead — you will have a cup more than you need for the corn soup, so saving it to make the sauce on Thursday makes good sense and will avoid waste.
Lastly, please make sure to check your pantry and refrigerator for tortilla chips and salsa before shopping. You may have those items on hand and not need to purchase them again in the quantities needed for the taco salad.
Please note that the recipes provided may serve different numbers of people. The shopping list is built from the recipes, so depending on the size of your family, you may need more or less of some ingredients. Remember to check the serving sizes before you shop so you can adjust your list to work for your family!
