Shopping List: 11/26/12-12/01/12

We took Glee to a Kids Museum in Florida for her 2nd birthday this September. They had a ton of themes and one of the themes was the farmer’s market. They learn to pick all the fruits and vegetables from the farm, sort them and transport them to the supermarket. Of course in the supermarket, they got little toddler size shopping carts and aisles of groceries. It was really an amazing experience for Glee as she went grocery shopping by herself. So this week we have decided to do a Kids themed week. All the meals are gear towards toddlers and their curiosity from sight, smell, taste, touch and feel. Check out our meal plans for the week:

Meaty Lasagna
Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Mashed Potatoes
Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
Butter Herb Salmon
Chicken Fingers with Yam Fries and Edamame Salad

Below is the detailed shopping list. Have fun shopping and we hope you and your family will enjoy the meals as much as our family did.
