Meal Planning: Trader Joe’s to the Rescue!

by Wendy Copley on December 4, 2008

Man, I just didn’t have time to put together a menu this week. At least not one where any creativity was involved. So what did I do? I picked a bunch of stuff out of the freezer and turned to my old Trader Joe’s stand-by’s.

Tuesday: frozen Costco falafels, whole wheat pitas, cucumber-pepper salad with lemon vinagrette and hummus

Wednesday: Carne asada tacos: meat, tortillas, arugula, sour cream (Trader Joe’s meal!)

Thursday: curried chicken tenders, garlic naan, rice, peas (Trader Joe’s meal!)

Friday: sour cream salsa chicken, brussels sprouts

Saturday: Chicken parmesan, green beans, garlic bread. Seriously, I’m going to make this this week.

Sunday: lemon pepper fettucine with lemon-artichoke tapenade and extra frozen artichoke hearts mixed in. (Trader Joe’s meal!)

Monday: I’ll dig something up — probably spaghetti.

    The lemon pepper fettucine with artichoke tapenade sounds très tasty! Same with the cucumber-pepper salad…hmm, maybe I am craving crisp summery tastes after the All-Turkey Week that Was.
