This week we are going make 5 delicious and simple dinners. We’ll start with a shopping list for all ingredients, and then move on to prep. From the time I spread all my groceries out on the kitchen table until I wiped down my prep table, and swept the floor, cleaning a bit as I went, for all 5 dinners!
