Sample Menus

I worked up a sample two-week menu using the current Kroger sale paper. What I came up with was three meals a day for two weeks, spending just under $127.00 (total will be less if some items are already on hand). This should feed at least four people...often allowing leftovers. Some prices on the shopping list are approximate because there are items that are not on sale this week. Sale items are marked with an asterisk*. Recipes are available for the meals printed in blue here.

*Ballpark Franks $2.00
