Menu for the Week

Photobucket

Even before I became a wife and mother, I learned that writing up a menu is always practical…
Especially for those of us who don’t like change, surprises, or to run out of money at the end of the month!

I’ve decided to start posting my menu plans here, so that I can begin directing those who have had questions about
“Just WHAT do you feed your kids?!”
