Grocery Bag

Ahh, I have missed my grocery bag.  Thanks to several loving friends and T's omnipresence during our first few weeks here, I haven't had to do much meal planning.  We've been flying by the seat of our pants, for the most part.  Now, it's time to get down to business as we re-establish our routines.

This Grocery Bag marks both the return of the Minnesota edition and my first fall menu plan.  The air is crisp and we've pulled out our light jackets for the week.  Dinner will have to rise to the occasion.  Here is my plan for the week.

Day One
Lentil sausage soup from Cheap Recipes Blog
with breadsticks and applesauce
A new favorite soup!

I use craisins in place of the chutney, but otherwise I love this dish.
