Preview: Weekly Meal Planning

Life is busy - and after a long day of work scrambling to figure out what to make for dinner can be draining. We often opt for our regulars, which is great, but the palate does get bored.

Therefore, I am starting a series on weekly meal planning, which is really just sharing what I already do on a weekly basis and making it available as a resource to simplify the wonderful world of meal planning for busy people. Although in future weeks the plans will be fuller (4-5 days worth), this week is a preview, and is for 2 days. Enjoy!


Rotisserie chicken tonight, Mexican hominy soup tomorrow!

Buy a rotisserie chicken on your way home from work, pair it with some mashed potatoes and veggies (or whatever else you need to get eaten from your pantry). Save the leftover chicken for the next day.

Tomorrow, make it a holiday with this quick, 30 minute easy soup recipe. Serve with tortilla chips or make your own cumin-lime tortilla chips.

Shopping List:
  • Rotisseri chicken
  • 1 jalapeƱo pepper
  • 1 can (15.5 oz) hominy
  • radishes (1/2 cup) (This week at Fred Meyer 2 bunches for $1)
  • cilantro
  • lime
  • tortilla chips
* The shopping list does not include staples that I assume are already in your pantry - including spices, peppers, oils, etc. Check the recipe to make sure you have the basics on hand.
