Menu Plan Monday - W/O 9/29/09 EIGHT WEEKS Strong!

So ... I am still impressed with this whole menu planning thing. I think the most amazing thing is that I find myself throwing away much less food than I did before. It seems we are able to get things used up BEFORE they go bad. That is good!

I have also added a few more recipes to our menu. I found two REALLY good ones this past week. See my review of last week below this weeks plan.
