Late Fall Week 3, Second Half

The second half of week 3 repeats the delicious chicken posole verde from early Fall along with the breakfast of refried beans and eggs that uses the remaining ingredients from that dinner. For a vegetarian option, we have a simple and delicious dinner of baked sweet potatoes also from early Fall, plus we round out the week with a warm, brothy recipe of ginger chicken meatballs with Chinese broccoli.

For details of how the recipe and shopping list quantities are intended to be used over the course of the full week, refer to Week 1, First Half.
