This Week's Menu and Shopping List...

I try to plan our dinners in advance to save trips to the grocery store.  Try being the operative word here! While working on this week's plan I thought this might be good to share here on the blog.  Hope this helps with your meal planning...

Monday   Steakhouse Porterhouse Steak, garden salad and baked Potato http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/the-chew/recipes/Michael-Symon-Steakhouse-Porterhous 
Tuesday   Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed green beans
Wednesday - Spaghetti and Meatballs with salad - I'll post my meatball and sauce recipes soon!
Thursday - Meatball sub with Baked French Fries (uses leftovers from Wednesday!)
Friday - Tilapia with Mango Salsa and Rice Pilaf (recipe posted on March 22nd)

Bakery:
French bread loaf (for meatball subs)
Produce:
Salad (Fresh Express salad bags are buy 1 get 1 free this week at Publix)
Bag of Yukon Gold Potatoes
Fresh thyme
Parsley
Basil
Oregano
Cilantro
Lime Juice
Orange Juice
Lemon Juice
1 Avocado (on sale for $.99 at Publix)
1 Mango
1 head of garlic
Fresh green beans
Slivered Carrots
Red Bell Pepper
Onion
Red Onion
Jalapeno
Canned foods:
1 (12 oz) can tomato paste
1 (28 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
*The canned tomatoes make up the red sauce used for the spaghetti and the meatball subs - I'll post that recipe soon. It is super easy and delish. It makes 10 cups of sauce so it is cost effective too!
Dairy:
Butter
Milk
Eggs
Mozzarella Cheese slices
Extras:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
White wine vinegar
3 cups chicken broth
Breadcrumbs
White Rice
Seedless Raspberry Jam
Frozen:
Frozen peas (Green Giant has selected frozen veges on BOGO sale this week at Publix)
Frozen Tilapia Filets (on sale at Publix this week for $7.99 for the 24 oz pkg)
Meats:
1.5-3 lbs of Porterhouse steaks-thick cut with lots of marbling (on sale at Publix this week $7.99/lb) Figure about 1/2 - 3/4 lb per person.  This is a splurge if you have a lot of mouths to feed.
 (4)Boneless Pork Loin Chops (on sale at Publix this week $3.99/lb)
2 lbs of ground round (I like to get 15% fat - anything leaner is usually dry and lacks flavor)
Publix Thick Sliced Bacon
