Monday Meal Plan, Oct 24-30

My parents visited this weekend.  I mentioned to my mom that she could use my menu plans to encourage them to eat out less often.  She told me she didn't understand my code.  Oops.  I did that because I don't like to type repetitive stuff.  I'll spell it all out this week and just make changes each week to the things that actually change.  I think I'll do away with the bullets too-they mess up the formatting when copying and pasting!  I also think I'm going to start making the plans on Saturday, even though they don't get posted until Monday.
