Food Plan and Grocery List, 040612

Having the day off work, I got a jump-start on what I'm going to make this weekend. After debating on whether to make dishes suitable for a couple (or a single person plus a leftover meal) or going all out on a meal worthy of eight, I opted to go the big meal route, choosing a Passover menu from one of my magazines.

The line-up:
Baked Chicken with Apricots and Olives
Caramelized Onion-Potato-Carrot Kugel
Green Beans with Shallots and Walnut Oil
