Hen House Bargain Meal of the Week
So did anyone even notice that I neglected to post a Bargain Meal of the Week last week??? Time got away from me, and the sale was lousy anyway, so I didn't get anything posted. Now don't you feel guilty for not noticing and asking me about it??? ;-)
This week, we're looking toward the warmer months, when the Crock Pot becomes a favorite appliance because it doesn't heat up the kitchen like the oven! Hen House has Fresh Split Chicken Breasts on sale, so let's make a little Chicken Cacciatore in our Crock Pots. Sound good?
Here's your Hen House shopping list:
