Menu Plan Monday

What should I cook this week? It’s a question I ponder each weekend. This week, I pulled a turkey breast out of the freezer. It’s been there since last fall when a local store had a great price on them, and I will be glad to get it out of there. So, we’ll have a little Thanksgiving in March later during the week.

Here’s the menu plan Monday:

Monday: Duggars’ Taco Soup – I enjoy TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” about the Duggar family. This recipe was from their book, which I recently read. I’ll be making less, since I don’t have 25-30 people to feed. I’ll also adjust it so I don’t add so many packets of seasoning; oy, the salt …

Tuesday: Southwest Chicken Lasagna – a family favorite.

Wednesday: Fish night; I will bake tilapia filets with seasoning sprinkled on them; I’ll also bake bread in the bread machine and make a vegetable of some kind.

Thursday: This is the day I’ll bake the turkey breast. I think I’ll try putting it into the crockpot (if it will fit) and maybe pouring a packet of dry onion soup mix over it … has anyone done something similar, and if so – did it work? I’ll also make mashed potatoes.

Friday: Chicken Curry with rice – the recipe I linked is similar to mine; mine also has spinach in it. It’s easy and yummy.

What are you making this week?

  1. In the last year or so I’ve been preparing turkey breasts in a LARGE crockpot. The first one I did I left in it, on low, for nearly 24 hours. That long was not necessary but it didn’t hurt a thing.
    Now I love doing them that way. After I deskin it, I add a cut up carrot, some onion, rosemary (if you have some), dill weed, salt, pepper, etc. I pour about a cup of water over it and forget it – except you won’t forget it – because your home will begin to smell just wonderful!
    I would never buy a turkey because I do not like dark meat so it’s turkey breast for me – all the way! yum yum

  2. I’ve got a couple of turkey breasts in the freezer too – and the idea of roast turkey (before it gets too warm!) sounds fantastic. Hmmm. . . maybe next week.

  3. I don’t know about onion soup, but I’ve done scads of whole chickens rubbed with a little olive oil and sprinkled well with Seasoned Salt and Pepper–they come out very close to “broasted”

  4. I just checked out the Duggar taco soup recipe. I would definitely not use the hominy. I think I used corn when I made that several years ago. I’ve lost my recipe, which I loved. Did I send it to you, by chance? It seems as if I did. If so, please send it back.
