Man it has been a tough week! I barely did any meal planning last week at all and DEFINITELY missed it...We ate a lot out of freezer leftovers and I did a couple of quick meals but there was nothing spectacular. I am starting to feel a little more motivated so I have all of my menu planning done well ahead of time!
Part of that is because of my new-found interest in OAMC (once a month cooking) - because I'm planning some meals WAY ahead of time, I'm thinking more about what I DO want to cook and the MPM planning was actually much easier this week. Hopefully it's a trend that continues!
I have a ton of leftover turkey from making a 7-pound turkey breast last week, so I found a couple of new recipes that will help me use that up this week. Either of these recipes could be done with turkey or chicken! I don't have to cook AT ALL this weekend because of the holiday, so my kitchen will get some much-needed rest before I put it to task for freezer cooking :)
