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

What an absolutely phenomenal idea to prepare meal plans ! No excuse for anyone that they don’t know what to use, how to make it. I love it and applaud you for it ! New fan in the making 😉

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.
