Shopping List: The Experiment

Below you find a list of all the ingredients you will need for the week.  You will note that I haven't put quantities of each item on the list.  This is because each of you will have a different family structure and how many people you will be cooking for each day.  You may need to adapt each recipe (double or halve, for example) the recipes, which will alter the quantity needed.  I've tried to itemise each of the ingredients to help you search for the items in the supermarket.

The ingredients listed in orange, are additional ingredients needed to make the poultry seasoning from scratch if you choose.

The ingredients listed in blue, are additional ingredients needed to make the Thousand Island Dressing from scratch if you choose.

The ingredients listed in green, are additional ingredients need to make the Taco Sauce from scratch if you choose.

    I'd love to come and cook for you for the next 8 weeks, but I don't think that would quite work! I'd be happy to meal plan for you, if that would help?! LOL
