Wow! I don't think I've ever spent this much at Saar's in one shopping trip!
This is what we are going to have on the menu using the groceries I purchased this week and the stockpile in my pantry and freezer from previous weeks and months of $60 shopping lists. Remember that one of my New Year's goals is to serve a meatless meal once a week, and we have three theme nights per week: Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and Breakfast for dinner on Sundays.
Wednesday-Reuben Sandwiches (on homemade Rye), Sweet Potato fries, grapes, birthday cake!
Thursday- Beef Stroganoff over egg noodles, Green Beans, Salad
Friday-Pizza night! Cheese, Pepperoni
Saturday- Macaroni and Cheese
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner! French Toast
Monday- French Chicken in a pot, Roasted Potatoes and Carrots, Caesar Salad
Tuesday-Taco Tuesday! Cheese enchilladas, cilantro/lime rice, pico de gallo
