All forward-thinking bros realize the importance of planning. Highly evolved bros possess adroit estimating skills. These bros are often depended upon to calculate such things as:

  1. Number of Bud Light Platinums required for a party
  2. Pounds of ice per keg
  3. And so on…

For the modern day bro, proper planning always includes weekly meal planning and grocery shopping. Cooking for Bros seeks to assist the bro in that bro’s process by providing weekly meal plans and shopping lists. Read on for this week’s plan.
