Menu Plan Monday - Khrista - Edition 1

Technically it is still Monday here in Alaska. 9:45pm to be exact. I was so excited to join in Menu Planning Monday because I ACTUALLY had a list and was going shopping today! I had to post! Here is our menu for the week.
These are all new recipes for us. I can say that tonight's recipe "Turkey Loaf to Live By" was excellent. You can see a photo at the end of my post. I will type out the recipe tomorrow.

Here's my grocery tab for this week:
