Menu, Grocery List, Recipes Year 2 Week 33

This menu is pretty streamlined.  By that, I mean it makes good use of time and ingredients.

First, when you grill the chicken for Chicken Smothered with Summer Veggies, grill enough so you can use some in the Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas later in the week.  You could grill even more and slice and freeze it for later.

You’ll use pesto sauce for two meals, which means there won’t be any waste of ingredients.

And if you want to maximize even more, instead of using store-bought meatballs, make an extra large batch and stock some away in the freezer for quick meals later.  If you choose to do that, you’ll need to add the ingredients to the grocery list.

As always, you get 6 dinners and 1 dessert.  Serving suggestions are included in bold on the recipes and in curly brackets {} on the grocery list.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Sweet and Sour Meatballs over Rice
Pesto and Crushed Tomato Shells, salad
Chicken Smothered in Summer Vegetables over Couscous, salad
Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas, chips and salsa, corn, salad
Pesto Tomato Pizza, salad
Tilapia with Veggies Baked in Foil Packets, baked potatoes, steamed veggie
Caramel Fudge S’more Nachos

It’s kind of fun to write “Year 2” up there in the title.

Fun and satisfying.  You know how laundry and house cleaning and cooking all have to be done over and over?  The results of those jobs don’t have a lot of staying power, although their importance is huge!

It’s satisfying to know that all these menus go out into the world to help people shop and get dinner on the table for their families.  And they can be used over and over again.

Okay, enough of me carrying on this morning.  Let’s get to this week’s menu.
