NOTE: All of these are easy to change...use ground turkey instead of ground beef, change a side-dish, replace one ingredient with another.....(salsa in place of pasta sauce, one veggie for another, etc). It took me @ 8 hours to do yesterday. And with the exception of I think 3 recipes, I've tried every one of them! AND I realize that we'll be eating leftovers @ 2 nights of the week, but at my house, leftovers are dh's lunches for work.
