Online Printable Shopping Lists

Hey, it's me, again. Your online printable shopping lists are ready. I love making these menus because it keeps me a little more organized and I'm feeling like I'm doing a service for others. Namely, you! I used to pay a pretty penny for a service like this, then I realized I didn't like the menus I was receiving and it wasn't what my family liked. We wasted a lot of food and didn't save much money because we were always buying gourmet ingredients and things that were way over the top. If that's what you're looking for, you won't find it here. I use the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book and it's just old time favorite recipes. No "Fancy Schmancy" stuff. Here's what we're having this week:
