Tasty Green Meal Plan

This week, and possibly from now on, we are just posting five meal plans rather than the usual seven. This is because we most often go out to eat once a week and always need a night to use up leftovers so that they do not go to waste. This week the meal plan is as followed. Most of the recipes are new to me so I can not promise that they will be great, but it should be fun trying.
I spent $60 this week at the grocery store and am feeding three adults and two toddlers this week.

Monday~ Ellie's Mannocotti
Mannocotti Noodles
Ricotta Cheese
Mozzerella Cheese
Spaghetti Sauce
Egg

Thanks, Sarah!
We are long past a get together anyway, your MORE than welcome to come over!

I am really looking forward to this meal plan. I got a lot of the recipes from trusted magazines and put my own spin on them. My sister gave me the portibella pizza idea which she SWEARS even a mushroom hater will like!
