Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit. I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.
We’re trying 2 new recipes this week! Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.
On the menu for us
Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job
Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad
Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn
The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended. I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.
