Menu Monday #9
This week’s menu and shopping were easy since we moved most of last week’s meals back a few days due to hospital/doctor visits. As you can see the homemade chicken soup was added to this week’s list. That would be because I had thawed my “soup bucket” and needed to consume it soon.
As a matter of fact it is in the crock pot as I type this.
Below you will find our planned menu as well as our main shopping trips.
