Supper Menu #3

To use this plan, look over the meals.  If there is a meal you know your family will not eat, note the letter beside it.  Cross items off the grocery list with that letter beside it.  Take your printed grocery list and cross off any items you already have stocked in your pantry.  Look at the meals and decide if you need any vegetables or bread as sides.  Add those items to your grocery list.  Add your breakfast items, lunch items, and snacks, and your shopping list is complete.
