Well, with the lovely turkey that I made today, I plan in making a few turkey dishes this week. Our Sunday meal consisted of a 14 pound roasted turkey, roasted potatoes, a big pot of collard greens(yum!) and a side of corn bread. Right now, we are stuffed, but I can’t wait to make a turkey sandwich later! Such a great start to the holidays. The rest of the cooked meat will be frozen for a later date. I loved already cooked meat; it’s a life saver during those times when you just don’t feel like cooking. Let’s see what we can conjure up this week before I have to go down to the base:
Monday: Red Beans and Rice with collard greens
Tuesday: Off to Applebee’s for a free meal. Happy Veteran’s day!
Wednesday:On my gosh! Goulash!
Thursday:Turkey and rice soup with whole wheat rolls
Friday: Pizza day, topped with ground beef
Saturday: Mama’s off to serve her country again. The boys are on their own…
Sunday: Mama’s back and dinner’s ready in the fridge! Turkey Shepard’s pie!
Bread of the week: Honey wheat
Dessert of the week: walnut chocolate chip cookies
