Whats for dinner?

MenuWhats for dinner is sometimes a common question?   Opening the refrigerator doors and trying to think what can I put on the table tonight.  Going to the grocery store and buying the random snacks and meals that you think you could serve during the week that will please your family.  After shopping, find an amazing recipe to learn that you need more items than what you purchased for the week.

Well if you have had any of these thoughts, your okay.  We have all been thru this.  From some readers request I have put together a weekly menu that I am following.  So here is some help.  Here is the Menu for the week, the grocery list and the recipes will follow thru the next posts.
