I am excited about this weeks meal plan, it was a little easier because I got a lot of great meats and things on sale this week. On Saturday’s Weekly Wrap-Up post you will see my sirloin pork chops and chicken tender strips from my awesome Kroger trip! Those are going in this weeks plan, plus some leftover pot roast that wasn’t fully used after the beef enchiladas recipe you will get in a few days! You will also see lots of potatoes this week; I had a raincheck at Kroger for organic potatoes and I bought 3 bags of them on Saturday. Whatever we don’t use I will make into steak fries to put into the freezer for later.
