Meal Planning #3

I am doing weekly meal plans in our house and am serving up a lot of tasty dishes each night, however I can't seem to get my act together to do a downloadable grocery list and recipe sheet each week for you guys. In an effort to still share the recipes I'm making, I am just going to do a modified version - complete with (at minimum) a link to the recipes I use to base the meals off, and if it's a good week, you'll get the modified version typed out on here.

On another note - while planning meals may take a bit of extra time up front - it without a doubt makes the week easier and greatly reduces the cost of our grocery bill. I mix and match recipes that require a lot of new ingredients with those that require minimal, cheap ingredients or only require things I have stockpiled in the house. I try and do 1 fish dish, 2 meat, 2 vegetarian, and 1 salad or pasta. As I've said before, the 7th night is reserved for leftovers or eating out. This system seems to work well and provides us with a wide range of meals. I find if I spend 30-45 minutes selecting recipes and putting together a grocery list, I can do my shopping in 45 minutes too - which, as I have quickly learned, is crucial when toting around a 2.5 month old.

Without further ado, Meal Planning #3:

1. Mayoless Pasta Salad from Skinnytaste.com

2. Zucchini Lasagna from Skinntyaste.com

(Make sure you let the zucchini sit with salt on it for at least 30 minutes to remove the moisture. Otherwise your lasagna comes out very watery!)

3. Orzo with Feta, Basil & Shrimp from William Sonoma

4. Herb Grilled Chicken from Fine Cooking & baked sweet potato on the side

(Using a fork, puncture sweet potato with holes. Place sweet potato in microwave in 2 minute intervals, rotating at each point. It should take 4-6 minutes for a single sweet potato to cook.)

5. Simple salad with Creamy Hummus Dressing from Simple Food Healthy Life

(My very basic salad consists of red leaf lettuce, diced tomatos, onions, and peppers, and a bit of cheese.)
