Monthly Meal Plan - Paleo Inspired

I used to cook dinner every night. I worked from 6 am - 11 pm every single day yet I still managed to come home close to midnight and cook dinner for the following day. Now I work from home and I can't seem to make that happen once a week. I have no excuse. My younger self is much more of a badass than my older self. And if I don't start up again soon, I'm going to lose whatever chef skills I might have been able to claim I had in the past.

After weeks of the husband bringing home dinner from his job that provides a chef and some to-go boxes, I was feeling somewhat un-domesticated. The guilt crept up and something had to change. In about an hour I put together a pretty basic meal plan, and so it started. My goal is to cook 2-3 times per week.

I tried to make sure we had variety each week but also (and perhaps more importantly) that I could use some of the ingredients for several recipes that week (for example, using half a lemon one night and the other half the next night). And I somewhat succeeded.

So here is my plan of action in case any of you are interested.
