Meal planning

I am not one that enjoys picking up someone else's idea, I find that most things "don't fit" and require way too much tailoring in order to "fit" so I tend to make things up on my own. I returned to work this fall and had to choose a path for meal planning. I didn't like the idea of having to shop for everything on Sunday, and with our current climate, we try to reduce our shopping trips as much as possible. I also like a lot of variety in my food. I have discovered that cooking is an area where I get to be creative. You would think as a teacher that I would not be looking for more outlets for creativity.  We grocery shop about every 14 days, give or take a few days with the odd top up here and there. I have a pretty good handle of what is in my cupboard at any given moment, and with years of practice I have a decent eye for what makes a good recipe. I also DO NOT USE COOKBOOKS. I apologize to the cookbook fanatics and authors out there, but why on earth
