Menu Planning

Saturday Shopping List

I don’t want you to think I’m a perfect person.  I don’t cook from scratch dinners every single night.  I try to.  But there are the “it’s too hot to stand up not to mention make dinner” days and days when I’m just too exhausted to prep and cook dinner.  Sometimes we go out to eat and sometimes we buy a jar of Indian curry simmer sauce, something quick and easy.  So, while I want to provide nutritional, home cooked meals for my family every night, that doesn’t always happen.

I just wanted you to know that before we go on.

So here is the menu I have picked out for this week.  I threw in a dangerously rich pasta dish, which we don’t usually eat, but sometimes you need to treat yourself.

Let me know how your week is going or what recipes you really like by tagging your photos on Instagram with #keepingwillow.  Leave me a comment below telling me what you didn’t like, how much your groceries cost or what your kids really liked.

 You can download your shopping list below.  Obviously, some of the things on the list you will already have.  Just check off the the things you need.  There is space below each category to add any other things you need to buy for the week.

You can find all of the recipes for this week in one place by following my “Saturday Shopping List” board on Pinterest here.

Total cost (for all groceries I bought including other food): $112

So much healthy in here.  Sombre Mesa is a new blog (to me) and I’m finding so many of the recipe look extremely appealing.  Most likely more to come.  RECIPE
