Shopping List 10/01/12 – 10/05/12

Hello everyone!

Here’s a shopping list for next week’s dinner plans. Below is a menu that I’ve put together for the week.

Beef Stir-Fry with Eggy Rice
Roast Chicken with Potatoes, Lemon and Asparagus
Shrimp & Zucchini with Bowties in Light Tomato Sauce
Braised Ribs with Baby Bok Choy over Jasmine Rice
Bake Cod with Brown Rice

Each recipe will be posted on a daily basis starting Monday. This shopping list is intended for family of 3-4.  If you are cooking for 1-2, just cut the quantity in half! I am looking forward to cooking up storm with everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!
