October Monthly Menus 2011

For the month of October I plan to use most of Real Simple’s “A Month of Easy Dinners.”  Links to all the recipes have been provided.  If you read the post I made about this and go to the original article on the Real Simple website, they will give you a link to the grocery list too!
