Saturday Shopping List

Hey friends.  Guess what?!! The keyboard is up and running again.  Got to love Apple products.  Anyways, I’m sorry it’s not Saturday morning, but I have a slew of delicious recipes for your week.  These are some of my favorites (that veggie sushi bowl is to die for!).

Let me know how your week is going or what recipes you really like by tagging your photos on Instagram with #keepingwillow.  Leave me a comment below telling me what you didn’t like, how much your groceries cost or what your kids really liked.

 You can download your shopping list below.  Obviously, some of the things on the list you will already have.  Just check off the the things you need.  There is space below each category to add any other things you need to buy for the week.

You can find all of the recipes for this week in one place by following my “Saturday Shopping List” board on Pinterest here.

Total cost (for all groceries I bought including other food): $101

This is such a creative twist on traditional sushi (and way less work intensive) by Cookie + Kate.  It’s super delicious and fills every sushi craving. RECIPE

This recipe from Sweedish blog Made by Mary looks divine (don’t worry, there’s a translation into English).  I did find one translation typo.  It says to use 10.5 cups of red wine.  It should be just 1/2 a cup, although you may need that much to share a glass with friends. RECIPE

Another simple and delicious recipe by Cookie + Kate.  You can’t go wrong with good old tortilla soup.  If you don’t want to make tortilla strips, you can always just buy tortilla chips.  Also, if you can’t tolerate heat, you can substitute a green bell pepper for chile or poblano. RECIPE

I love Naturally Ella.  This recipe is easy and fast.  You can use regular broccoli if you can’t find broccolini.  Eat with a simple arugula salad tossed with a little oil and vinegar (I included the arugula in the shopping list so if you don’t want it, just omit). RECIPE

The name of this blog is Connoisseurus  Veg.  I kind of love that.  These are easy, simple and vegan served with a maple tahini sauce.  Make them gluten free by using GF breadcrumbs and tamari for soy sauce.  If you’re vegetarian, I recommend adding some feta. RECIPE

I am picky about my polenta.  I like it creamy, not stiff and gummy.  This recipe by Pinch of Yum is my favorite.  Serve with a poached egg! RECIPE

This is my number 1, all time favorite stir fry recipe.  The sauce is delcious but Post Punk Kitchen takes it over the edge by adding avocado, basil and some roasted salted peanuts. Also, this method of stir frying I have adapted to all kinds of recipes. RECIPE


HAPPY SATURDAY and can you believe it’s already October!!
