Menu Plan Monday

Are you still feeling full? I know I am. And there's still pie to be eaten! Argh!

I made a batch of turkey salad today which we'll have for lunch this week in sandwiches. I put 2 1/2 c. of chopped turkey in the freezer for a later use and tonight we're having turkey nachos for dinner. That's it for the turkey unless you count the extra bird that's in my freezer. I bought two because they were on sale for such a good price. It will probably be January when I cook it as I've already promised the girls that we'll do ham for Christmas dinner.

This week I just made a list of main dishes that I had the ingredients on hand for. I haven't assigned them a day yet as I think I'll just wing it and make what sounds good. Friday night the girls will be having frozen pizza as Lawman and I will be attending my office's holidy open house. We host it each year for our clients but we benefit because the food is fabulous! It's catered by the Cox Brothers.

I'm not feeling like menu planning today for some reason but know I should. Maybe I am burned out on food for once : 0

Our menu planning has gone down the wrong path these past couple of weeks with sickness and holiday festivities going on. I plan to get back on track next week- thanks for the inspiration!
