the shopping list
Print out this puppy and do a little tour through your kitchen before you go to the grocery store. Thereís nothing worse than an eleventh hour run when something crucial is sitting on the stove. Iíve organized the list into categories of foods that tend to be found near one another in the store, a tactic intended to minimize your shopping time. This list is intended for a party of 4-6 adults (with appetites); you may want to take a look at the recipes and do some multiplication if you intend to host a few more.

meat and dairy
1 wedge Brie
1 package extra-firm tofu
(cut back on the chicken and do two packages of tofu if you expect thereíll be a lot of tofu eaters in the crowd)
1 breast boneless, skinless chicken per chicken-eater
1 pint vanilla ice cream or lemon sorbet
hummus

bread + starch
table water crackers (I like Carrís but many grocery stores sell good generic versions now)
