Planning ahead: April menus 2017

I anticipate that my grocery list will look very much like this image, as we continue to severely limit purchases in April, eating what is on hand in the process, topping up on the usual perishables: milk, 1/2 & 1/2, lettuce as well as a few items to complete the menus: cream, berries, pie crust.

My plans for the month:

2-CP rotisserie chicken, canned green beans, buttered noodles with herbs, cranberry sauce

Our Easter meals are almost identical. I serve mine with mashed sweet potato, though.
Best of luck with your move! I am so looking forward to hearing about it.

When we bought this house and were in the painting/repairing process - I can NOT even begin to tell you how many - sandwiches - we ate! Your menu looks great (as usual!)
