Grocery List – Week 6

Well, I’m back from our honeymoon, and my fiance is now my husband.  Pretty exciting.  🙂  We had a fantastic time touring around Prince Edward Island – definitely a great place to check out if you’re looking for a summer vacation destination!  We saw so many beautiful ocean views (with that amazing red sand), visited adorable alpacas and goats, saw Green Gables, and of course had some delicious meals.  Our venue was The Grand Victorian in Victoria; the owners there are super sweet, and we couldn’t have asked for a more stress-free day or a more beautiful spot for photos.


Anyway, on to this week’s menu.  Full disclosure:  I did cook this past week, but all the recipes I tried were kind of duds.  Not terrible, but nothing I’d want to share with you here and suggest that you spend your own time on.  So this is a menu I wrote up a little while ago.  All the meals this week are from Dinner at the Zoo, which is my go-to source when I need relatively fast and easy fare.  Most of her recipes are designed to be made without a lot of fuss, while still being tasty and healthy.  Definitely good for weeks when you have a lot going on.
