From Sales to Supper

supper2

About three months ago, my mom and I were discussing blog post ideas at my kitchen table – one of my favorite places in my home.  We came around to talking about menu planning and how much money it saves each month.  While that is definitely true, I think everybody and their dog has read a post somewhere on the web about the hows and whys of doing a weekly menu. I wanted to go beyond that, and actually help you create one.  Thus, an idea was born: From Sales to Supper takes the weekly ads and breaks them down into 3-5 dinners you can put on our table that week.  Our grocery ads start on Wednesdays here so you can plan to see this list on Thursdays, plenty of time to shop over the week-end and use the meal plan next week.  So, here we go…. our first week of From Sales to Supper!
