Grocery Bag

We are marching through Lent here in Happily Ever Johnson Land.  Our month is sure to be full of surprises, and we'll need a plan to rise to the occasion for dinner.  Here are my ideas for the week.

Day One 
Shrimp in coconut curry from Rachael  Ray
with basmati rice and broccoli slaw salad
This curry is great with my kids because the veggies are minced in a food processor.
If I don't have shrimp on hand, I sometimes substitute 3 cups of chickpeas.

Mediterranean chicken couscous from Southern Living
with balsamic-rosemary vinaigrette spinach salad from Everyday Food Magazine

This casserole is delicious and perfect for a chilly night.

Day Five
Punjabi curried kidney beans from The Indian Slow Cooker
with brown rice and carrot slaw salad from Everyday Food Magazine
Fresh spices make all the difference in this slowcooker dish from one of my favorite cookbooks.
