Menu Plan Monday: Week Of 10/18/14


Here’s this week’s menu plan and grocery shopping list! I’m actually on my way to North Carolina for a conference this weekend, and since I won’t be home until Tuesday night I’m pretty sure my husband will be feeding my kids frozen pizzas, but I figured I’d put together a menu plan for him anyways. (And maybe he’ll head to the store for me?) ;)
