Meal Plan & Grocery List #5

Meal Plan & Grocery List #5

Here's a new meal plan for your week! This week's meal plan features a dinner option that can be adjusted for Lent, if-needed! Some recipes are available on my blog, some recipes are from various volumes of A Month of Dinner. There is a paperback book that includes volumes 1-3 of A Month of Dinner as well as individual e-books available for each volume and you can find those here! "The Book" has made it's way into thousands of kitchens across the country, I promise you won't regret adding this cookbook to your collection.

I hope you find this week's meal plan helpful!

-Tex-Mex Style Enchiladas (recipe from A Month of Dinner, Vol. 3)
-Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Potatoes (recipe from A Month of Dinner, Vol. 3) and Mint Shallot Peas
-Green Pasta (recipe from A Month of Dinner, Vol. 2)
-Chicken Picatta (recipe from A Month of Dinner, Vol. 2) OR Fish Meunière if you need a seafood recipe for Friday during Lent. The ingredients are identical, just switching chicken and fish!

A few things to note:
-Please be sure to add any toppings you'd like for your enchiladas!
-For the Chicken Picatta and Fish Meunière, you can serve both of them over greens (such as arugula) or over pasta (linguine, for example) or risotto, for some ideas. Please add your choice to grocery list!

I had $114.89 as a total. Total cost is dependent on geographical location, grocery store of choice, preferred brand, preferred quality and other variables. My total includes a mix of organic/non-organic, store-brand/non store-brand choices.
