So as you probably guessed, we ate turkey all week long. Turkey dinner leftovers, turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, handfuls of turkey as a snack…and I still froze a whole bunch to use in the weeks to come. Turkey cooking is time consuming, but if you cook a big enough bird, it is worth it!
Its getting close to Halloween and I am still not totally sure what my costume will be.
I thought I would be a cat herder.
But the teachers at my school decided that we would all dress as story book characters instead. I have a few ideas, but I am not totally sure which one I should be.
I’m thinking about
- Fern from Charlotte’s Web
- Where’s Waldo
- Pete the Cat
- Fancy Nancy
I guess a trip through my closet and then to goodwill will make the decision for me. Stay tuned, I’ll be sure to post a picture of my final choice.
I’ve put the turkey away (mostly) and we are back to eating other meat and vegetarian options this week.
|Chili||Black Beans and Rice||Tuscan Shepard’s Pie||Turkey Spaghetti||Frozen Pizza|

I have an eye appointment after school so I wanted a recipe that I can throw into the crockpot and when I walk through the door it will just be ready. Chili is the perfect choice. I may get fancy like Andrew did, or I may just stick to our tried and true recipe.
More beans! I am sure Andrew will say something about that. This is easy and delicious. Perfect for a weeknight.
I have been meaning to make this for 3 weeks. It still looks as good as it did 3 weeks ago…
My sister’s fiancee is Italian and she says that at Christmas they have turkey, but it is always served in red sauce over pasta. This week I plan to channel my inner Italian and see what I can come up with. I’ll pull some of that turkey out of the freezer and see what kind of magic I can create.
