Well, we survived Christmas. Barely, but we survived. The two kiddos and I each took turns fighting with the flu bug. ICK! But we are now back to our normal selves and even managed to put the Christmas decorations and most of the new toys and presents away.Any parent out there will attest to the knee-deep piles of toys, clothes and random packaging that
litters takes over your house after Christmas. It has taken us a few days, but for the most part, everything has found a new home. Yay!
This week’s meal plan went together rather quickly thanks, in part, to my craving for Fish Tacos and my need to free up freezer space by cooking up my whole turkey.
I wanted to keep it simple for New Year’s Eve. We are heading over to our neighbor’s and will be bringing fresh fruit and dip as well as homemade crab rangoons (I’ll post the recipe tomorrow).
Officially my new, favorite meal! You can find the recipe in my previous post.
Roasted Turkey, Acorn Squash and Frozen Vegetables
Since my previous roasted turkey attempt was so successful, and I had another FREE turkey in my freezer to use up, turkey is on the menu again. I’ll take pictures this time and add my recipe. YUM!
Spaghetti and Fresh Salad
Maxwell’s weekly pick of noodles.
Loaded Turkey Spinach Pasta Salad
I have seen several recipes on Pinterest using chicken and pasta on top of a spinach salad. So I thought I would give it a try and add my own twist(s). I’ll keep you posted on the success of the recipe once we try it out.
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble. It has been a while since we made homemade pizza (hey, 2 weeks is a long time for us!) I have a new crust recipe that I want to try (as well as a new pizza stone from Christmas). This crust I am planning on topping with pesto instead of sauce, turkey, green onions, spinach and cheese (and probably whatever random food I find in my fridge that needs used up!)
Turkey Salad Sandwich
Yum. I really like chicken/turkey salad sandwiches on fresh croissants. Not the lowest-fat option out there, but it is SO good. I’ll serve it with some fresh fruit and maybe a lettuce salad. Can’t wait for this one. It has been way too long!
