Week starting Aug. 22, 2016


Creamy Avocado Zucchini Pasta with Charred Corn & Spicy Shrimp (double recipe). I was skeptical about the raw zucchini noodles, but they were perfect with the other components. Love shrimp. Don’t love peeling and deveining shrimp. But, it’s worth it when it’s on sale.



Grilled Sprouts Hot Italian Sausage and leftover Creamy Avocado Zucchini Pasta topped with cherry tomatoes


Baked Greek Chicken (using ingredients from week before; didn’t make last week). Went ahead and made homemade baba ganoush, which is basically eggplant hummus (left out the tahini; roasted eggplants in oven). Big fan of Greek flavors.



Lettuce-wrapped burgers with Chipotle Roasted Carrots (use regular carrots)
