Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • If you have leftover basil from Monday’s dinner, add it to the wraps or calzones later in the week.
  • Instead of buying two small cucumbers for the wraps and salad, buy a large one and use it for both days.
  • We put pita bread on the list for Wednesday’s dinner, but the salad can be served stuffed into tomatoes or lettuce leaves instead.
  • The sweet chili sauce on the shopping list is for drizzling over the lettuce wraps. If you prefer straight up spicy to sweet-and-spicy, you can substitute sriracha.
  • If you want to use additional toppings for the flautas, add them to the shopping list.
  • Make sure the avocados you buy for the flautas aren’t quite ripe if you’re doing your shopping on the weekend.

    Please include some recipes that do NOT have hot spices. There are those of us who cannot eat foods with these spices. This trend in cooking is getting old!
