Menu Plan Monday

It was a really nice weekend. On Saturday, I made a trip to the grocery store and saved 52% on my weekly groceries. Saturday night, we had a couples night out with some friends. It was nice to get away as adults. Sunday of course, was Mother's Day. We didn't do anything special for Mother's Day, but I spent it with the kids, which really is what it's all about. I did make myself a special dessert because I wanted to.

Last week, I didn't get a chance to menu plan or shop, because I was unexpectedly traveling over the weekend. It really made dinner difficult last week. For the most part, we wound up winging it, deciding what to have for dinner in the middle of the afternoon. By Friday, I planned dinner before I left for work and made up my Chicken Enchiladas recipe using leftover turkey tenderloin I had frozen the other week. They were pretty good - it really makes me wish I could actually find the turkey breast tenders - I think I could substitute them in a lot of chicken recipes.

This week, as you can guess, there is once again turkey in our menu plan. I used some ground turkey, along with beef, to make the Skyline Chili recipe. I am using some turkey sausage as part of our breakfast for dinner meal and we are trying another flavor of the Turkey Tenderloin for dinner on Saturday. My husband, being the funny guy, is asking at every meal - so how did you use the turkey tonight. I think that next weekend, I will run out to the Super K-mart to get some additional product and see if they could get in the turkey breast tenders (maybe I should call ahead on that one).

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me.
