menu plan monday

Yesterday we finished our Thanksgiving leftovers, so unlike many people out there, I’m not scrambling for ideas to use up turkey. In fact, I ended up buying a little more! When I was grocery shopping yesterday, the supermarket must have divided up the rest of their fresh turkeys to sell. I bought a package of two turkey drumsticks for all of 57 cents! I’ll use those to make a little turkey soup during week. I wish I bought another package or two for the freezer, at that price.

All in all a very easy week cooking-wise. Don’t get too excited about the butter chicken. Really, I’m just throwing the meat and vegetables into my Crock Pot with some butter chicken simmer sauce I purchased. I won’t be making that totally from scratch. I hope it will be good. Here’s my plan:

Sunday: Fish sandwiches, french fries, salad
Monday: Slow cooker roast beef, potato salad, carrots, salad
Tuesday: Tacos, rice & beans
Wednesday: Slow cooker butter chicken with peas and cauliflower, rice
Thursday: Turkey soup and sandwiches or leftovers
Friday: Dinner out (hopefully!)
Saturday: not sure yet
