I actually am only going to cook a few things today, due to not feeling that great this morning, but what I am making is going to go a long way this week and the next few.
So far I am making the following:
- Roasting a Turkey (this may go into the crockpot if it'll fit because of the heat we are having). This will be for the next week. I am making turkey, spinach, swiss wraps, turkey sandwiches aand turkey soup. We are also going to have a small turkey dinner tonight with HM mac and cheese and veggies.
- Boil a bag of chicken breasts. I like to boil these ahead of time and chop them into cubes and freeze into individual meal sized bags. I make lots of things out of chicken breast and having them already cooked gives me the option to throw a quick pasta meal together or some chicken enchiladas , pot pies, or a casserole together during the week...very simple.
- Beans- I had planned to have these cooking in the crockpot all day today, but forgot to soak them last night AND I am thinking I want to cook my turkey in there....so those will be done next week ...maybe on Monday? They are very simple to make and I am planning on doubling some of my meals for the next few months to get a nice stash of meals put away. This was done with my last pregnancy and really helped on those days that I just wanted a nap! LOL
So far that is all I am making today....I am kind of playing it by ear today because of my morning sickness, but want to get some things done nonetheless.
