Last week and this week have been so busy. It’s a couple of those weeks where I wonder how I will get dinner made 5 nights a week – but somehow it always does happen. This week I am finally baking the 2nd turkey I bought back before Thanksgiving when they were so cheap. I think it’s a big pain to bake a turkey, but it will provide a lot of meat. I also learned my lesson that time that – regardless of the turkey’s instructions that it would take 3 days in the fridge to defrost – it will take a lot longer than that. This turkey has been in the fridge since Thursday; hopefully by Tuesday it will be thawed.
Here we go for another menu plan Monday:
Monday: Corn Chowder
1/2 c. thinly sliced onion
2 T. butter
1 can mushroom pieces
2 c. diced, cooked potatoes
2 c. diced ham
2 1/2 c. milk
1 can creamed corn
2 cans mushroom soup
1-2 tsp. parsley
1/4 tsp. paprika
Combine all and simmer for an hour.
Tuesday: I will bake the turkey and also make mashed potatoes and probably green beans – heck, I’ll bake bread too 🙂
Wednesday: Make your own taco bar
Thursday: Curried Chicken and Chickpea Stew
Friday: Calico Beans – these are good and easy to make ahead in the crockpot for busy evenings.
What are you having for dinner this week? Lots of ideas at OrgJunkie’s.
