A Beginning

Today I went grocery shopping. But, before hand I made up a menu for this week's meals and I hope that will be the beginning of a beautiful relationship:-) It is a bit challenging for me to sit down and do one...I'm not always certain where to begin...but I did it!

Today I went to Costco, which is where I tend to stock up on things and tomorrow I will get the few things I couldn't today. I hope that I will begin to see the savings from planning ahead and making more from scratch and just buying what I need. We will see!

Would you like to see my menu?


"House" chicken


Green beans


Pork Chop Adobe

White Cheddar and Chive Potatoes Au Gratin

Green beans(?)


Halibut w/ Lemon Sauce

Broccoli and Cauliflower

Buttery Farm Biscuits


Meatball Skillet Dinner w/noodles


If Dan and the kids are really lucky, I might even make something for dessert one of these times:-) We enjoy a dessert after dinner...oreos are our stand-by!

I've also come a little farther on the nightgown that I've been working on for Fiona. I'm really happy to see it coming closer to completion. I hope to have it done by the end of the weekend(maybe sooner!). I'll post pics when I'm all done:-)

Hey Sommer!
Good for you dear!! I have a hard time with menus too, but they do really help. One thing I do that saves some $ is I try not to by meat that is more than $1.00/lb. Esp. at Cosco this is easier than you might think! I esp. love their whole chickens...they do wonderfully in the crockpot! I can't wait to see Fiona's nightgown! :) Hugs and love,
