Menu Plan 1/8/2012

Last week was a very tasty food week. I had to do a little bit of rearranging of things but not too bad. For Friday night’s potato bar I had planned on using the leftover chili and possibly the Southwestern topping as on of our potato bar topping options. However, we had zero leftovers of those two items. Fortunately, I had taken the carcass from our Thanksgiving turkey out of the freezer to turn into broth. After cooking the carcass overnight I was was able to pick off about 2 cups of meat from the carcass. This combined with turkey broth became a delicious cream of turkey soup/gravy which was a perfect baked potato topping.
 
This week we’ll be eating white beans (small great northern) as our stretchy bean. Monday night’s roast beef leftovers will be lunches for Joe, Christopher and I as long as it lasts, Kiki and Lulu will take their usual simple brown bag lunches and breakfasts will be simple each day from our common breakfast list.
