I can't wait to sit and look over this post later tonight!
I love when you go to the store and I get to look over your stuff. I am trying to plan better like you:)

Will you post the recipe for the Thai Chicken??


mise said...

Sometimes I look at the admirable diversity of these menus and wish I were you.

Helen McGinn said...

Beth, definitely! I've not made it before, it all looks straight forward but I'll give you my verdict! x

mise,hon, you are too lovely to me. It's a mix of what page I fall onto in the recipe books, what I know the kids will eat and what stuff I need to use up! ;O)

Little Ms Blogger said...

You HAVE to take a picture of Chicken goujons. I've never heard of them and am very curious.

Ms Bibi said...

I so need to start buying groceries your way. I seemed to be going and picking something everyday. My budget got way lower, but I am sure I can trim it even more.
