Tips For This Week’s Plan

    • The pizza calls for 1/4 cup of black beans; instead of adding another can to the shopping list, save 1/4 cup from the casserole for Wednesday.
    • The casserole uses pepper jack cheese and the pizza calls for Mexican blend; choose one or the other and use it for both.
    • Spare green onions can be used as a topping for the casserole. If you want any of the other optional toppings—tomatoes, avocado, sour cream or hot sauce—add them to the shopping list if you don’t have them on hand.
    • Add some naan or rice to the shopping list if you want to pair Friday’s meal with something carb-y.
    • Champagne mangoes are in season! If you can find them locally, buy one for the pizza.

    Yikes, SO pasta based. While they look down-right delicious, they also really shouldn’t be consumed in succession…
