    Hi Cassy, just love the book and so happy for the additional weeks, however, for week 2 I’m confused by the 2-4 people shopping list that is for the dinners only. It says it is for the 4 dinners but I don’t see the ingredients for the philly cheese-steak skillet…I don’t want to miss any ingredients when I go shopping so just making sure I’m looking at this correctly. Kind of used to the 3 dinner format so the weekly meal plan is throwing me off a little. Thanks for the amazing book and the free extra weeks…you are the best!
