Meal Plan Monday!

Sharing is caring!

It’s amazing how long “roast beasts” last in our house! Well, sometimes the meat goes quickly, but most of the time, I can get a crazy amount of meals out of them. This week, we will be using up the last of the lamb from Easter, and trying to use up the rest of the free turkey I got from Shop Rite.

Monday: Enchilada Bake with the leftover lamb
Tuesday: Turkey Fried rice
Wednesday: Dinner out…sort of. We’re getting Popeyes… they’re having a good deal
Thursday: Breakfast for dinner! Cheese eggs, grits, crespelles with warm apples
Friday: Pizza Pizza!
Saturday: Sliced turkey breast with gravy, yellow rice and carrots
Sunday: Leftovers night!

Dessert of the week: I’m on an apple kick! I’ve got 21 pounds to go through! This week it’s homemade applesauce from the crockpot.
Bread of the week: Brioche
Soup of the week: none again…we’ve had a good amount of leftovers

    I’d never heard of crespelles, but they look delicious!

    I’ve been looking through some other menu plans, and it looks as though we’re all having pizza and/or Mexican dishes this week. 🙂

    Where did you get 21 pounds of apples this time of year?

    Have you made the brioche before?

    I think those meals are basics for most of us every week lol.


    we went home to Ohio for Easter and visited a fruit farm there. My MIL “steals” me every time we visit the family and we make that trip part of our “girls day out.” I got 2 pecks, which is about 21 pounds, for 17 bucks. That’s about .80 a pound! I always get them when we go now, because we NEVER find granny smiths at that price around here and they are my favorite apple to bake with. I’m putting together a post about what I’m going to do this time with the apples. Stay tuned!

    P.S. to Lucky,

    Yes, I’ve made the brioche many times. It is fabulous! I don’t actually bake the loaves in the breadmaker, I bake them at 350 in the oven once the dough cycle is done.

    The brioche is awesome as a french toast bread. I want to make some just in case i’m too tired to make the crespelles.

    Of course, Lucky!

    We went to Whitehouse farms in Canfield. The next time I’ll get to go, it will be Canfield fair time, so I know it will be crowded, but get there when you can! All of the apples are heavenly and juicy. Make sure you have a freshly baked glazed doughnut from there, too! :o)
