The big meal plan

In my effort to get things a little more organized around here, I finally got around to making a list of the meals we eat pretty regularly. I tried to plan for a month's worth although what we actually eat in any given week depends on what is on sale and what we have on the calendar for that week. Having this nice neat list means I can just check the sales ad and pull menus from the list - no more "hamburger's on sale.....hmm, how many diifferent ways can we eat hamburger meat." Also, it should make stocking and shopping from the freezer a lot easier. We'll see...
