I grocery shop on the weekends and make a list of the main dishes that I will be creating, then think of the side dishes to each one. I have a busy life, and this seems to work for me. My meal plans for this week:
Sunday - Corned Beef, cabbage, carrots and a tossed green salad
Monday - Marinated Swordfish steaks, wild rice, and baby broccoli
Tuesday - Pork Tenderloin, applesauce, Trader Joes Beans so Green, and rice pilaf
Wednesday - Shrimp Scampi, with garlic, pasta and a green salad
Thursday - Trader Joes Korean Short Ribs, mushroom risoto and a green salad
Friday - Let's see what is leftover from some of these dinners!Saturday - Steak night!
