Weekly Menu for 5/6/12 - 5/12/12

Each week we will try to offer you a variety of quick, healthy, easy meals and a grocery list to accompany each night.  Using a menu helps with the never ending quest for "What's for dinner?" even if you change the order.  Shopping with a list and visiting the grocery store once a week has also been proven to save time and money.  Time and money are precious commodities today.  If you make a little extra, it can also save on extra spending at lunch.  Not only will you save money and time you will also know what ingredients are in your food and enjoy the health benefits.
