Menu Plan Monday, week of March 28th

My beloved husband has commented recently that lately I’ve been cooking all these elaborate meals, and he wondered why. The truth is I just wanted to show my family some love by cooking yummy things for them (like Beef Pot Roast and spinach-strawberry salad this past Saturday or roasting a turkey today, even though it’s not Thanksgiving) now that my morning sickness is history.  And part of the reason for doing these kind of things was that those dishes produce A LOT of leftovers, and we love leftovers, especially when they are repurposed into something else. So, for instance, this week we’ll be eating a lot of turkey things as well as finishing up the last of the pot roast 🙂 I stocked up on turkeys when they were a great deal before Thanskgiving, so it’s a nice frugal way to add protein to your diet without breaking your budget, especially when you can stretch it to several meals.

Monday: italian-herb roasted turkey, roasted garlic and herb potatos, creamed califlower, and steamed carrots

Tuesday: turkey carcass soup with freshly baked whole wheat bread

Wednesday: turkey enchiladas, steamed broccoli 

Thursday: pulled barbequed pot roast sandwiches, salad

Friday: turkey and citrus salad

Saturday: leftover buffet

Sunday: small snack, possibly just fruit and yogurt, since we have our small group in the afternoon and end up eating some snacks there.

What are you all eating this week? Have you made your menu plan yet?
