Welcome to issue #2 of the Quickies newsletter. Thanks for bearing with me a bit, as I figure out exactly the format, and what I want to do with this.

I promised 5 quick dinner ideas, and a shopping list. I've made a shopping list for each recipe individually - or if you'd like to make them all, I've made a master shopping list that you'll find at the bottom. Feel free to send me your comments/suggestions both positive and negative. This newsletter is a bit of trial and error to see what works.

Scroll down for a Master shopping List combined for all recipes listed below.

Your shopping list for individual recipes are as follows:
