Menu Plan Monday (March 28, 2011)

Last week's crockpot beef stroganoff was a big success. It's so quick to throw together, which is what I love the most about it. Even our picky toddler loved it. I'm really working on getting more of my recipes with pictures up on my blog, but it will take some time. I planned fairly simple recipes for this week with lots of leftovers. My grocery challenge isn't go so well right now. Is it just me, or have grocery prices increased a lot lately? Lettuce I used to pay three dollars for is now five dollars. Just one more reason, I can't wait for spring to arrive so I can plant a garden!
