I also didn't try to do "Monday is ----, Tuesday is ----," etc. Instead it was 7-8 dinner ideas that we could do any day depending on what we felt like eating. Also, you could write a list of things you eat a lot of; certain dishes are definitely weekly staples for us. I'm trying to do some freezer cooking too, to save on some time eventually.
Yes I would love to hear more too!
