Menu Plan Week Of 9/28/14


Here's this week's menu plan and grocery shopping list! I'm super excited because one of our family's favorite recipe is this Best Ever Slow Cooker Roast (I promise, even though the picture isn't all that pretty it is the best. ever.) and since I have an extra shoulder roast in the freezer it will make for such a yummy (penny pinched) meal this week.
