Woohoo I love pantry cleanse time!
So I think I mentioned that I bought 3 turkey breast roasts for just over 3.00 each. I made the first one last night, and it was pretty tasty! Not bad for a pre-cooked turkey breast. It also provided a TON of meat. Last night we ate it w/roasted veggies (potatoes, carrots, and asparagus…we had all three on hand) out in the back yard on our picnic table. It was so nice outside, and much hotter in the house, so it was perfect. The hubs was rather pleased with our dinner setup last night. Today, I’m taking the rest of the turkey, and chopping it up into teeny bits. I was going to make turkey salad sandwiches (think mayo, etc) but I dont have mayo, lol. Sooo I decided to take the turkey, cook up a few slices of my turkey bacon in the fridge, chop that up too, and mix it w/some ranch dressing. Considering I’m trying to save my sandwich bread for Gavin’s peanut butter sammies, I’m going to make some dinner rolls, hollow them out just a bit and stuff em’ w/the turkey salad filling. I plan on serving them with rice pilaf and iced tea. Pilaf is easy to fix, and so tasty, not to mention cheap. I also have some fresh apricots that I will slice up. (Thanks to my FIL for free fruit!)
Dessert will be a lemon cake that I have in the pantry, with lemon icing (that is also in there!)
Just for kicks, I’ll mention that breakfast is going to be cinnamon pancakes, and lunch will be soup and sandwiches. Snack will be these fruit bar popsicle things we have because its going to be HOT today. Kids will enjoy that.
I suspect it might be a little sad that I am so excited about this challenge, lol…apparently I live a pretty quiet life if this is the blog-worthy tidbits I have to share.
