Oct 10-13 Weekly Menu and Master Shopping List

 It’s Shop on Sunday or bust.  The next two weeks are going to be really busy as I push a big project to close. As I look at my calendar, I will need meals I can prepare ahead of time, or VERY, VERY quickly, given the upcoming weekday schedule.

My kids have some requests, which I have worked into this week’s schedule.  Oldies but goodies…
