food friday {week 7}

this week is a yummy and efficient one . . .

because we’re roasting a turkey & using it’s meat for 3 different meals.  if you haven’t roasted a gobbler before, i encourage you to give it a go.  feeling absolutely uninspired?try substitute a store bought roasted chicken in the below turkey recipes.

i’m also going to double all of the turkey dinners and freeze half to bring to my very wonderful sister in love who is having her third baby sometime this week…  you could do the same and stock your freezer, bring to a friend or host a dinner party!

    Made the soup and chicken salad tonite! Yummy! I saute’d the leeks with the bacon which made the soup very smoky and great.
