I’m totally making all of these this week. I went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up all the ingredients I didn’t already have on hand and my grocery bill total was $52.44 - not bad for five days of two serving dinners. I made the Jalapeno Chicken last night. The beans and carrots are really delicious. Take a forkful of beans, carrots, and chicken together and the flavors meld so amazingly. However, I marinated the chicken for only an hour so there wasn’t much flavor. Next time I’ll do it overnight. On the down side, these are not quick cooking weeknight recipes. After a full day of work and a thirty minute commute home the last thing I want to do is wait two hours for a braised pork dinner (I’m making that one over the weekend). To say nothing of the prep time beforehand - at that rate I’d be eating at around 10:00pm. Even so, great article. Delicious recipe so far. More grocery list/5 days of meals recipes likes this please, but place a larger emphasis on making the prep and cook time reasonable for a week night. I think an hour top from start to finish is the longest it should take for a weeknight meal - less than that if possible.
