Breakfast  choices
Cereal w/milk (need more milk)
scrambled eggs
Biscuits and Jelly
Pancakes or waffles
fruit (whatever is on sale)

Monday...homemade chili w/cornbread (need meat from the store)
Tuesday...fried potatoes and sausage  w/corn or green beans (need potatoes and sausage from store)
Wednesday...Soup and Grilled Cheese (need sliced cheese from store)
Thursday...Spaghetti w/ Italian sausage (need sausage)
