Menu Plan Monday

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

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.

  1. Three days to defrost a turkey – HA! 😉

    I always plan on at least a week. . . and even then, I often end up with ice crystals inside. If your bird isn’t all the way thawed, I’d just rinse it in cold water (inside and out) for a few minutes.

    I do love having the leftover bird meat around, too.

  2. Gift card–oh no! I think I deleted the email without opening it and my trash is “empty”….sorry but my office was hit by a virus email with Gift Card!!! I’m so sorry!!!!!
