I'm impressed, meal planning can be a chore but you seem very smart about it. I am trying to do be more efficient with my planning and shopping so it will be nice to share ideas. I have been using my outlook calendar to plan out my weekly meals. Your list here is so thorough but will benefit others, so that's great that you organize and post it here!
