Sunday - 5 Day Meal Planner 8/30

Monday: Seared Mahi-Mahi with Green Gazpacho Sauce
Tuesday: Slow-Cooked Penne Pasta
Wednesday: Chicken in Shallot Sauce
Thursday: Eggplant & Mushroom Greek Casserole
Friday: Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos

I will assume you have olive oil, canola oil, balsamic vinegar, ground cumin, salt, pepper, dried oregano, all purpose flour, rice, white wine, red wine, eggs, milk, parmesan cheese, honey and cider vinegar

From the Grocery:
1 and ½ pound ground beef
4 pound boneless pork shoulder
28 to 32 ounces of mahi-mahi (Harris Teeter always has this on sale; if not then buy whatever fish is on sale)
4 chicken breasts (cutlets or you can pound them down yourself)
32 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated cheddar (Costco sells this in a two pack)
1 container ricotta
Small (8 ounce) sourcream
2 onions
1 cup sliced shallots (maybe 2)
2 cups green or red grapes
8 ounces sliced mushroom1 eggplant
1 onion
5 cloves garlic
½ pound button mushrooms
6-8 tomatoes (will be skinned and chopped so you could use a big can or 2)
1 English Hot House Cucumber
1 bunch fresh cilantro (Wal-Mart has this for $0.88 which is by far the cheapest)
1 bunch of green onions
1 bunch fresh parsley
6 ounces cherry tomatoes
2 chopped, seeded Serrano chiles
3 whole ancho chiles
3 whole pasilla chiles
2 bags of salad
1 pkg sliced pepperoni
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Vegetable stock
Low-sodium chicken broth (just buy a case of the organic kind from Costco made by Pacific)
2 boxes penne pasta (Costco has Barilla in bulk and it is great!)
2 jars of pizza sauce (I just use the pasta sauce I like)
Chipotles in adobo sauce (in ethnic section)
Salsa
Bay Leaves (in the spice section)
Cinnamon Sticks (also in the spice section)
Corn Tortillas

On Sunday night you need to chop everything! You could also make the sauce for the pork for Friday and then in the morning before you leave for work you could just dump everything into the crock pot.
