Sunday lunch + Grocery shopping

I love Sundays….I wish they were longer!

After church, we went to one of our favorite Mexican places…of course, we started with chips, salsa, and guacamole – I love the colors!

And, I had an Ensalada San Marco- basically just lettuce, grilled chicken, tomato, and avocado- which I promptly topped with almost a whole bowl of salsa – it was nice and light for a Mexican meal.

After lunch, we did our main weekly grocery shopping…here’s what was on our list….

Produce:

  • mixed greens
  • yellow onion
  • sweet potatoes
  • raspberries
  • grapes

Meats:

  • chicken breasts
  • lean ground beef

Starches:

  • whole wheat hoagie rolls
  • Arnold sandwich thins
  • naan
  • pinto beans
  • garlic bread
  • whole wheat spaghetti

Miscellaneous:

  • Fiber One cinnamon cereal
  • half and half
  • sweet potato chips
  • eggs
  • 1% milk
  • Kashi waffles

We’re already stocked with bananas, blueberries, blackberries, canned tomato sauce, and broccoli to put together our weekly meals. Anthony and I both have a busy week this week, so we won’t do as much cooking probably. Here’s our plan for now.

Sunday: pesto grilled chicken with sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli

Monday: Spaghetti with meatballs, garlic bread, and salad

Tuesday: (Anthony has an evening meeting), so I’ll have a meatball sub with sweet potato fries

Wednesday: (I have girls’ night dinner out), so Anthony will have a meatball sub with fries/chips?

Thursday: (I have a late night at work), so Anthony wants to make his special pinto beans and cornbread- it was so good last week.

So, much less cooking than usual, but with a busy week, it still helps to have a general plan to go by. Have a great Sunday afternoon!

    I love pinto beans and cornbread. I married a country boy so of course it’s a meal made in my household too… πŸ˜€

    Glad you are having a marvelous Sunday…me too πŸ˜‰

  3. Looks like a great menu for the week! Your grocery list looks so similar to mine, I guess all RDs think alike! I love the Fiber One cinnamon cereal, it’s just like cinnamon toast crunch, but healthier, you can’t beat it!

  4. I’m catching up on your day obviously πŸ™‚ I love that you share your grocery list and weekly meal plans with us! It’s so great to see what a dietician eats!
