I fell off my calorie-counting wagon, then it ran me over.
This week we will probably eat from the freezer and pantry, even if that means we will be eating random things because we are going to be in New York part of the week. Here’s what I’m thinking for the week.
OMGoodnesss! I am already sorry that I way overcooked for Thanksgiving!
Turkey is healthy enough, but I put pecans, brown sugar, butter, on yams and then melted marshmallows in a huge pan.
Only 1/2 of it got eaten or taken home on plates.
I know it will not freeze good, and I feel guilty wasting them. At the same time, I feel like I am eating crustless pie to get rid of them.
I think I will be eating and freezing turkey for sure.
Next week, I will go with more light dishes like Asian chicken salad and soups. I realize that I do not feel my best when I eat too much of the wrong stuff.
I'm going out to dinner tonight so I only have one thing planned so far and that’s for tomorrow. I have 2 pounds of salmon marinating now and I will throw it in the smoker tomorrow. Then I will roast asparagus and carrots and some potatoes.
Yesterday I made an easy Mediterranean roasted veggie pasta with bread and a salad.
Since my husband has Covid, we are staying home. We have been eating leftovers from Thanksgiving, but after today they are either going in the freezer or getting pitched if they don't freeze. My husband bought lots of chicken on sale that is now fills the freezer so I know we will be eating chicken all week. I hope someone responds with some interesting ideas!
Haven't thought about it much, but I'm thinking:
-fish (salmon in the freezer)
I need to round things out tomorrow, then hit DH up for a Kroger run.
Hmmm, I made turkey soup today, so we'll be eating that some. I have cooked so much in the last 4 days, and we have a ton of food in the fridge, so we may be having a lot of leftovers. Spaghetti & meatballs, stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey soup.
Mon - I made a big pot of beans with the leftover ham bone from Thanksgiving. Of course, we have to have cornbread with it. Yum!
Tues - Leftovers with a salad
Wed - Zuppa Toscano soup with salad
Thur - Omelets with fruit
Fri - Mexican food at our fav restaurant
