Happy 2012, Friends!
To start off this new year I am going to try to add something new here. Since I already go through the work of making a weekly menu + grocery list for us, I have decided why not share it? I know most of the time you will not need it, but just in case you think, "Man, I am so tired and I can't think of anything I want to cook for this week..." well, you won't have to. It will all be right here. And for those who don't cook because they never have any ideas... this is for you, too. The grocery list attached will have everything you need to make these meals happen at your house. And chances are, you probably have lot of stuff on the list anyway, cutting the list to a much smaller size. Just buy the rest of the stuff, click on the links to take you to the recipe, and Happy Cooking!
