Groceries and menu planning

Now that I have my refrigerator, I had to go shopping! I wrote up a menu, sort of, first. Then I went to Sam's, but I was smart, I stopped at Taco Bell and had a taco first!
I bought a box of frozen salmon fillets, a bag of chicken breasts, a bag of cheese ravioli and a bag of sliced frozen strawberries and some fresh blueberries. I still have a big bag of walnuts and two bags of raisins, and my canned chicken from Sam's for my Chicken Salad.
I bought some Laura's boneless petite sirloin steak yesterday at Kroger and it is in the crockpot now, with some beef stock. I know that will horrify some, but I need it very tender and completely cooked. It will fall apart when I pull it out for dinner, and I will eat the last of it tomorrow. I also bought some of Laura's ground round, which I will make sloppy joe mix out of.
I will be eating Chicken Salad for lunch this week, and the Sirloin on Mon and Tue, Salmon on Wednesday, Sloppy Joe on Thursday, and then I am heading for Mom's on Friday afternoon. We will see what she feeds me! I am really looking forward to meeting Rachel and Mason and seeing Joel again. I hope Gwyn will be up so I can see them interact together. I will try to get some video to post.
