I thought I should join Nicole this week for posting my menu for the week. Although, like Danica things change throughout the week and I really can't plan ahead as much as I would like.
I am starting from this past Sunday, because we're still eating the leftovers for lunches :)
White Bean Turkey Chili in the crockpot
leftover turkey meat
several cans of different beans-great northern, pinquitos, etc, drained
can of corn, drained
can of diced tomatoes
flour or cornstarch for thickening
cumin , coriander, tiny bit of salt, pepper, cayenne
whatever else floats your boat!
Italian seasoning, or just oregano, thyme
lasagna noodles, dry
onions and garlic
cook up the sausage, turkey, onions and garlic. In another bowl, mix together cottage cheese, parm, italian seasonings, and eggs. Put some of the meat mixture on the bottom of the crockpot. Cover with a layer of sauce, then spinach and mushrooms, then mozz., then cottage mixture. Sometimes I add cream cheese to this mixture...just because. Then a layer of noodles. I broke mine in order for it to fit better in the round crockpot. Then layer again until all ingredients are gone. Today is my first time doing this in a crockpot, so I'm sure I will have to check on it periodically to see if it needs some broth or something for moisture.
noodles from Costco
chicken from a rotisserie chicken I bought the other day
array of veggies, mostly broccoli
sometimes a little soy
fresh ginger (I keep mine in the freezer and grate it directly from there into the dish. This way, my ginger stays fresh and it's so easy to store and use!)
leftovers or whatever Matt decides to cook since I work through Sunday
