Last week we enjoyed some yummy meals from our pantry:

BBQ Turkey over Mashed Potatoes (using free instant potatoes)

Baked Ziti from the freezer

This week we'll be eating some yummy foods too.

  • Peanut Butter Toast with Banana Slices and 1 cup almond milk,
  • Egg W hite Omelet with Cheddar and Tomatoes

Weekly Snacks:

  • Black Bean Nachos with Avocados and Salsa
  • Pasta Salad with veggies
  • Butter Parmesan Noodles with sweet peas

Monday:  Shepherd's Pie (ground beef in the freezer)*, frozen sweet peas, buttered toast, spinach salad with pecans and strawberries

Tuesday:  Chicken Pot Pie (using leftover roasted turkey)*, green beans, frozen broccoli

Wednesday:  Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Oranges

Thursday:  Leftovers or Soup

Friday:  Thin Crust Pizza (using toasted flour tortillas) with Salad

Saturday:  Visiting Family

Sunday:  Subway $5 Footlongs, Baked Lay's

Shepherd's Pie is one of my husband's favorites.  I'll be sharing this one over at Sissy's recipe blog after I make it next week.  I'll also share my favorite Chicken Pot Pie recipe, but we'll be using leftover turkey.

Some other things to work on this week:
1. Make up some Pumpkin Oatmeal with Cardamom* (here's the link).  I'm sharing my version of this recipe tomorrow.  Here's a sneak peek.  

Doesn't it look delicious?!?!  It's so good, healthy and easy to make ahead to eat for the rest of the week. 
2. Bake up Turkey Croquettes and freeze them for next week.  This should take care of the last of the leftover roasted turkey.  I'm going to bake these to reduce the calories.  I made some Salmon Cakes, which are very similar to this recipe.  The first time I made those, I followed the recipe and pan-fried them.  The second time, I baked them in the oven and they were perfect.  So I'm going to try this approach with the Turkey Croquettes.  Hopefully it won't backfire.

3. Bake up some Low Fat Blueberry Muffins (Krusteaz, free at Kroger a few weeks ago).  The kids need some yummy snacks. Nevermind, I just found some Lemon Poppy Seed muffins in the freezer.  We'll eat on those first :)

4.  Make No-Bake Granola Bars (using $.50 canister of oatmeal from Walgreens last week)

Hope you have a great and tasty week!

The pumpkin oatmeal sounds intriguing, I cant wait to see the recipe. I also haven't made chocolate peanut butter smoothies in awhile, thanks for the reminder. :)

I don't like oatmeal, but this one sounds GREAT, what a creative idea!!

The turkey cranberry wreath is so pretty and sounds delicous.

Thanks for sharing your ideas!!
