This is the second installment of my new weekly meal plan with printable shopping lists! I try my best to keep the recipes simple and delicious so that they are doable for a weeknight after work, but I’m a stay at home mom and I love to cook, so I often wonder if my gauge for “do-able for a weeknight” is the same as everyone else’s. Let me know what you think of the recipes I’ve chosen! Are they too complicated or time consuming? Or maybe they’re working for you! Either way, I’d love to hear about it.
If you have any questions, please just ask away. I am so excited about this and I really want it to work for you.
CLICK ON THE NAME OF THE DISH TO BE TAKEN TO THE RECIPE
*NOTE – All shopping list ingredients will be for serving TWO people, no matter how many the recipe says it serves.
Sunday – Crock Pot Chicken Tacos with Corn on the Cob

Download Shopping List → OnePotChiliConQuesoMacCheese
Note: 1) I’ve used almond milk in this because it’s what we use at home, and it tastes great. 2) This makes a lot! You could easily halve this for two people, but I have NOT done that for the shopping list.
Tuesday – Cashew Chicken with Sesame Garlic Green Beans
Download Shopping List → [download-attachment id=”779″ title=”CashewChickenSesameGarlicGreenBeans”]
Note: 1) You could use boneless skinless chicken breasts if you want. 2) The shopping list halves the recipe, so make sure you take that into account when measuring everything out. 3) If you’ve never bough fresh ginger before, you can break off any amount you want from the big ginger roots at the grocery store. You only need a nob of it for this recipe.
Wednesday – Steamed Cod with Black Beans and Chilli
Download Shopping List → SteamedCodwithBlackBeansandChilli
Note: 1) The recipe says “dried black beans” but what I think it beans is rinsed and drained black beans. This is supposed to only take 15 minutes to make, so it doesn’t make any sense to use dry beans. 2) You can substitute any firm white fish in place of cod. 3) If heat isn’t your thing, just leave out the chillis. It’s still an excellent dish without them.
Thursday – One Pot Greek Chicken with Lemon Rice
Download Shopping List → [download-attachment id=”777″ title=”OnePotGreekChickenwithLemonRice”]
Note: 1) It’s up to you if you want to use bone in or boneless thighs, and I would actually substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If you want to use the breasts, see the recipe’s note on using boneless thighs and follow those directions. 2) There is also an option to cook the whole thing on the stove top instead of finishing it in the oven. See the notes at the bottom of the recipe for that option.
Friday – Easy Bolognese over Roasted Spaghetti Squash
Download Shopping List → [download-attachment id=”799″ title=”EasyBologneseoverRoastedSpaghettiSquash”]
Note: 1) You could obviously just use pasta instead of spaghetti squash. 2) If you do use the spaghetti squash, make sure you give yourself time since it takes about 45 minutes to roast. If you can plan ahead to cut it in half and scoop out the seeds the night before, you’ll be saving yourself some time.
Saturday – Day off! Eat out or order in.
