Weekly Menu 6

Thursday, March 4, 2010

This week's recipes come from some other blogs that I follow. Holly made a chicken fettucine that looked great so I quickly put that on the menu. The other meals come from a woman that I ran across while surfing the blogs. She has several recipes and I can't wait to try more of them out.

Don't forget to figure out what side items you'd like to have with your meals and be sure to check your pantry and fridge for any items you might already have. Match up coupons and sales where you can.
