Weekly Menu #5 with Suggested Grocery List (Dairy, Gluten/Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

What's for Dinner?
I know it has been awhile since I have posted a menu.  You may also notice we are eating less grains and if I see this correctly, I believe this menu is actually grain free.  I picked up most of my groceries today and definitely noticed how much more organized I feel for the week with a menu in place.  It does save on a lot of time and stress.  
I do try to make use leftovers and some similar ingredients for ease and cost.
