Menu Plan Monday

I am so glad my Mom taught me about menu planning and grocery lists.
I remember my mom scheduling her grocery trips so she could hit 3 grocery stores in one day.
Actually I thought it was a waste of time and gas, but she swore she saved money.
Well I guess I follow in here footsteps a bit, as I go to two stores.
Anyhoo, here is a list of what we are eating this week.
For more participants, tips and ideas please visit I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Monday: Zesty Sausage and Rice
