Shopping Trip and Menu for 03/21-03/27

This week I ended up going grocery shopping on a Monday night, which is extremely rare in my household! Normally the weekends are my go to time to get errands completed, however, my weekend was just too jam packed to make that happen.

This weeks grocery haul was much more expensive than normal and I blame that in part for going on a workday in the evening with my husband (!) and also because I had to stock up on a few household staples and we ended up buying a rotisserie chicken and sides from the salad bar for a quick dinner.
