Tips for This Week’s Meal Plan

  • If you have a large oven-safe skillet, use that to bake the orzo and save yourself a dish
  • If you’ve got a hankering for a grilled veggie burger, you can bake them until they’re set and then transfer them to the grill to finish cooking
  • Just about every component of enchilada recipe can be prepared a few nights before — the baked sweet potato, the tofu and the mole. Once you’ve got all the components ready to go, it’s just a matter of assembly and 20 minutes in the oven, then it’s enchilada time!
  • Microwave the sweet potato for the enchiladas to save yourself an hour of roasting time
  • Fresh corn should be a-plenty this time of year, but if you can’t track any down or don’t feel like cutting it off the cob, use frozen corn instead

    Dana, I just found your website and it is a Godsend. I cannot figure out how to get this week’s cover sheet to print out full-size though! Help! I’ve printed them successfully for two other weeks, just having trouble with the 7/20/15 cover. Many thanks.
