Menu For The Week

I spent the whole weekend dusting off and reading cook books and scouring the internet for websites with good, healthy recipes. And, today I went to the grocery store to stock up the fridge and pantry. On a side note, there should be a parenting class devoted to "Grocery Shopping with a 1 Year Old". At first, Lucas (my son) was really, really sweet. He blew kisses to every single person he saw. About halfway through, he proceeded to grab every grocery item and throw it out of the cart, which earned me some stares from fellow shoppers. Ok, so back to cooking, which is the point of this blog. Tomorrow, which is really today since it is now 2:13 AM, I will spend the day prepping meals for the week and organizing the kitchen. I will also be making homemade household cleaners. If you want to know more about that, I will be posting a series about "greening" your life on Saving With Style. Below is the menu for the week. There are only 5 dinners, rather than 7 because I know there will be leftovers. As I make each dish, I will post recipes, take pictures, and let you know what we thought about it.
