Printable Grocery Lists with Requests

Well, I'm still waiting for my new cookbook. I looked today and it wasn't there, so while we wait, I'm adding some favorites of some of my readers. The rest of the recipes in our printable grocery list are from the 1996 version of Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I think I'll have the new edition in hand by next week. If you order now, Amazon has a special where you can sign up for an Amazon card and get $30 credit, which makes your book free with credit left over. I don't get much from Amazon for your book, I just want you to be on the same page with recipes so you don't get frustrated when you're cooking. Life is hard enough.

We're starting the request month a couple weeks early. Who said I had to follow my own rules? So, the corn pudding recipe and the Barbecued Mullet are from Jack Simmons' blog, EatnBetter. The Pull Apart Pizza and the Beef Stew are from Lynn Di Carlo's blog, Lynn's Kitchen Life. Make sure you click on the links and print out those recipes to make your meal planning easier. Thanks for all the suggestions that came in. We're not through with the requests. My kids requested the pizza and Tamale Pie. If you have a request for a favorite dish or a recipe you'd like included, you can e-mail me or comment.
