Menu Plan Monday

I have been flying without a menu plan for the last few weeks!  I think that I'm getting better at figuring out dinner on the fly, as it has not been as stressful for me as I expected.  Still.  Life is a bit smoother with a plan, and I really do grocery shop more effectively.  (That means I spend less, and waste less! Win-win.)
