I hope to write a more detailed post sometime about how I menu plan, but for now, here's a quick overview of our menu and shopping trip for the next two weeks.

- Toast, fruit
- Eat out (because we are shopping, this is built in to our "eat out" budget)
- Rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes, corn (our "go to" meal on shopping days. Usually make the left overs into Chinese chicken salad, but going to just eat left overs this week)

- Pancakes
- Left overs
