Grocery Bag

This week we are all about regaining our routine after a week of travels and family fun.  Meal plans are a key way for my to keep our sanity in check during re-boot weeks like this one.  As the weather gets colder, I am dusting off some of my favorite fall recipes to make them for the first time this year.

Day One
Ham steaks, baby lima beans
and Honey roasted root vegetables from Cooking Light Magazine
I broil our ham steaks for a few minutes once the vegetables are done cooking, and voila! 
This is one of my favorite fall dinners.

Day Two
Hamburger stroganoff from Cooking Light
with spinach, broccoli slaw and blueberry salad
This lightened version of the classic dish hits the spot every time.  I don't change a thing, except I use grass-fed beef.

Day Three
Lentil chili from
with homemade bread
This is a tried and true fall favorite, a hearty main using lentils.

Day Four
Corn and fingerling potato chowder from Cooking Light Magazine
with biscuits and carrot sticks
I love chowders, and I can't wait to try this one.

Day Five
with mixed green salad and orzo pilaf
This dinner is great because we can all eat the various parts our own way.  Our kids usually enjoy eating everything separately, while adults will enjoy the satisfying wraps.

Blessings on your kitchen this week!
