Printable Grocery Lists for Spring Menus

Printable grocery lists and online menus are finally ready. This week, we will be having some of my favorite foods, including pot roast, taco salad, chicken enchiladas, and more. I have come to realize that my cookbook is outdated and there is a newer version with different recipes and different pages, so I've ordered the new cookbook and I'll begin using that one as soon as it arrives. Sorry about the inconvenience and confusion. The page numbers for all recipes so far are from the 1996 edition of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. When I ordered my new cookbook, they were having an offer where you can apply for an Amazon credit card and get $30 credit, which would make your book free with credit left over for another book. Pretty good deal. I don't know how long they're doing that special. So, here are the printable grocery lists and menus for this week.
