This Week’s Secret To Success
These seasonal meal ideas are perfect to make in the same week because they make the most of lemons! I know I talk about the meal planning strategy of shared ingredients a lot, but that’s because it is one that makes meals work.
And when I say work, I mean just that. The strategy works so you don’t have to! When meals are planned around a central ingredient, grocery shopping is easier and takes less time, making/prepping for meals is easier and you don’t have leftover ingredients you have to store but never use. That’s huge!
This week: Buy one bag of lemons and you have the central ingredient for 4 of this week’s recipes- Lemon Chicken & Rice Casserole, Skillet Roasted Asparagus, Tuna Salad with Apples & Celery and our dessert, Lemon Blueberry No Churn Ice Cream.
1 ingredient, 4 different and amazing seasonal dishes!
Dessert This Week
